Partial WaterFire Boat Rides

Our partial WaterFire boat rides include an evening cruise throughout the downtown Providence waterways, with the addition of a Basin WaterFire lighting! Partial lightings can include the circle of twenty-two braziers in the Waterplace Park basin and the twelve braziers leading up to the Providence Place Mall. There is no narration during this tour.

  • There are no bathrooms at our launch site or aboard our boats. PLAN AHEAD and use the bathroom before you arrive.
  • If you would like to grab a drink from the bar next door to bring aboard with you, please arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your scheduled tour. You may also BYOB in a small cooler, on all of our tours.

  • Same-day cancellations, no-shows and late arrivals are non-refundable and rescheduling is not permitted.
  • We reserve the right to reschedule or cancel tours when less than 4 passengers have booked. It doesn’t happen often, but we will call you ASAP if it does.

Weather Related Cancellations

  • All of our tours will typically run in light rain and other moderate weather conditions. We do not cancel tours due to inclement weather until approximately 15-30 minutes prior to departure, as the weather changes so quickly in New England.
  • Our tours may launch a few minutes late if we are experiencing a passing storm/shower. We do not allow cancellations/refunds in this case, we simply ask that you are patient and wait it out with us.
  • If we do cancel your tour due to weather, you may reschedule (subject to availability) or receive a full refund.
  • We reserve the right to cancel our tours in the event of severe or unsafe weather conditions.

What’s the difference between a full lighting and a partial lighting?

  • Full WaterFire lightings light up over eighty braziers from Waterplace Park to Memorial/South Main Street Park.
  • Partial WaterFire lightings include the circle of twenty-two braziers in the Waterplace Park Basin and the five braziers leading up to the Providence Place Mall.
  • All lightings occur shortly after sunset and the fires will remain lit until midnight (unless otherwise noted).
