This charter is 1 hour 45 minutes long and includes a light snack, soft drinks, water, and ice. We are happy for our guests to BYOB. This sightseeing charter package in Newport, RI, is completely private, meaning no other groups or guests are aboard the boat, which is what sets our sightseeing boat tour apart from the other power boats docked at Bowen’s Wharf. We are however restricted to a total of 6 guests.
We find this 1 hour and 45 minute yacht charter package perfect for those wanting to sightsee Newport, the Narragansett Bay, and Jamestown. There is time for swimming; however, this does cut down on the ground we can cover as part of our sightseeing boat tour. Your crew is happy to provide light narration with their extensive knowledge of the bay, mansions, homes, and history if it is something that the group wants.
Your private yacht charter begins on Bowen’s Wharf. Once off the dock, we cruise Brenton’s Cove and see Ida Lewis Yacht Club, Harbor Court, and Beacon Rock. This is usually the best spot for a swim and a bit of relaxation with a cocktail on the foredeck. This section of the harbor is the perfect spot for a wedding or engagement proposal. It’s also a great spot for a swim.
As we cruise by Fort Adams, we head into one of the most stunning parts of the area, known as Narragansett Bay. You will see Hammersmith Farm, Castle Hill, and the house on the rock Clingstone; we cruise by the town center of Jamestown before crossing the bay again, this time passing Rose Island lighthouse and Goat Island lighthouse.
Once back in Newport Harbor, we go past the Newport Shipyard to see the superyachts and end our 1 hour and 45 minute yacht charter back at Bowen’s Wharf.
Guests are encouraged to bring their own food and alcoholic beverages. We provide the ice, ice bucket, cooler, glasses, napkins, plates, cutlery, bottle openers, emergency swimming towels and warm blankets on cold days.
Don’t forget your sun protection, bathing suit and towel, and a warm layer in case it gets cold out.
We love having babies, kids, dogs, and all the associated paraphernalia that comes with these guys, such as prams and water bowls, aboard the boat. The boat is all yours on this Newport, RI, sightseeing charter!
