HARBOR TOURS WITH A HISTORIC VIEW

Gansett Cruises breaks away from the typical harbor tour to offer a comfortable, relaxing and delightful full hour and a half cruise of Newport Harbor and the East Passage of Narragansett Bay. Our guides, many of whom grew up on these waters, are enthused to share the legends and rich history of their home port, the Sailing Capital of the World.

ABOARD A CLASSIC

It's just the feeling you get from being on a well-appointed private yacht that makes the Gansett so special. Built in 1969 in Maine as a working lobster boat that unloaded its catch right where its now docked in Newport. The open deck plan, comfortably cushioned seating, broad shaded canopy and topside sun deck create the most pleasant cruising experience in Newport. Modern amenities aboard.

WITH RHODE ISLAND SPECIALTIES

On every cruise, there's something from the galley that is representative of Rhode Island cuisine and culture. The crew serves Del's Lemonade, Coffee Cabinets, Yacht Club Sodas, RI State Clam Quahog "Stuffies" and more! Guests on board discover the true flavor of The Ocean State, compliments of the Captain. Gansett's cash bar serves a selection of Narragansett beer and an assortment of red and white wines.

USCG Certified for 49 passengers.

  • My Wife & I took The Gansett for a Sunset tour this past September. It was the most perfect evening. Great staff on an immaculate boat, taking an informative tour of the harbor. Patrick was a plethora of knowledge. Drinks were made well. Enjoyed the complimentary "stuffies" and the champagne. Highly recommended.
  • A Really Nice Experience. A Complete "Up-Close and Personal" Historical Narrative Account of Newport Harbor That Can Only Be Experienced By Boat⛵ and Water Access. A Truely Unique Experience.
