A GREAT CRUISE AND GREAT CREW, BUT MAKE SURE TO PARK AT THE MARRIOTT PARKING STRUCTURE AND ARRIVE WELL BEFORE THE 15 MIN. INDICATED, AS YOU WILL NOT FIND PARKING ANYWHERE NEAR THE BOAT DOCK AND THEREFORE RISK MISSING THE CRUISE. THIS ISN'T COMMUNICATED AT ALL BY THE EVENT PLANNER.

Great tour of beautiful and historic Narragansett Bay. Although we didn’t make it over to see the mansions because the water was too rough, we instead went under the bridge which was great. Our tour guide was excellent, well versed in the history, ecology and other trivia about the Bay and its landmarks. The boat was comfortable, clean and safe nbb no every way. Highly recommend this tour to relax and enjoy Newport from a water view.
