One of the most enjoyable ways of seeing Newport is from the water. Cruises sail past the mansions along the rocky coastline, out on the waters of Narragansett Bay, and past the lavish yachts and sailboats that are moored in Newport Harbor. Anglers will also find a number of charter fishing vessels, as well.
Sunset sails, cocktail cruises, and dinner cruises are the most popular, but most organizations offer a variety of tours with different itineraries and lengths. Vessels include powerboats, yachts, and schooners. Many vessels are independently run and can be found in Newport Harbor. Most organizations conduct tours between May and October.
