A Must Do TripAdvisor

Learn incredible facts of the cities history and how it all came to be. The trip is absolutely beautiful. You have the peacefulness of the river and then the grandeur of the buildings saturated along the banks. I highly recommend!

Great Ride! TripAdvisor

We had a great ride on Saturday during Columbus Day weekend. The tour was very informative and our Captain, Peter, was wonderful! He was very eager to share his knowledge about Providence and he was great to travel with. I'd highly recommend this trip!

Wonderful Experience TripAdvisor

What a wonderful way to experience the history and character of Providence. My wife and I have lived in the city for more than seven years, and Captain Tom provided us with a wealth of information and anecdotes that were fascinating. Would highly recommend this tour to all Rhode Islanders and visitors to our state.

Unique Historical Boat Tour TripAdvisor

After enjoying the fun narrated tours lead by Captain Tom for the past few years, we were excited for the opportunity to explore the Green Jacket Shoal. We had wondered, during low tide, what the exposed wood in the river was off of India Point Park. The tour, guided by David Robinson, brought us out - up close - to “Rhode Island’s largest ship graveyard” where we learned about each boat settled there, and therefore, a lot about Providence history. The boat ride was fun and fascinating!

Tourists In Their Own City Google Reviews

The 1 hour tour is a beautiful way to see the city, whether you are a local or a tourist! The views and photo ops were stunning, and Captain Tom knew so much about the city, even us locals learned a thing or two! Will definitely be back, perhaps for the WaterFire or Haunted Riverboat Tours!

Don't Miss This Tour Yelp

While in Providence, don't miss this tour!!! Captain Tom was great, very informative and able to answer all questions the guests threw at him. Try to make this one of the first things you do as it helps you to get the lay of the land. All of that aside, their customer service is A++++, we were running a little past the check-in time, due to wrong turns. When I phoned to let them know, the wonderful woman that answered was kind enough to bring us to their dock turn by turn!! KUDOS to all!!

I had the pleasure of being on the first Haunted Boat Tour. Captain Peter and our guide, Kelly were wonderful! Both were very knowledgeable, with great stories to tell. Beautiful ride on the river, learning some of the eerie history of Providence. Thanks for a fun night!

Birthday Charter Google Reviews

Went on a late afternoon voyage this past Sunday for a friends birthday. What a great time and beautiful day in the harbor. As a lifetime Rhode Islander, seeing the Providence shorelines from a different perspective was absolutely enlightening. Being able to see the old and new bridges, and how they were constructed is very cool. Captain Tom was not only incredibly informative, he had a great sense of humor and made the ride extremely enjoyable.

The Best Way To View WaterFire! TripAdvisor

We loved our relaxing boat ride through the WaterFire show this past weekend! The driver of our boat was able to get views for both sides of the boat during different portions of the show and I noticed he was slowing down in front of some of the cool sections of flames to allow people a chance to take pictures and selfies. The view from the boat ride was amazing of the flames and the show. I would absolutely recommend taking a boat ride during WaterFire. It took the show to an 11 on a 1-10 scale!
