Personalized Private Charters

Climb aboard and host a unique private event on the Providence waterways! Our private charters are perfect for family outings, birthdays, retirements, gender reveals, proposals, gals/guys night out, bachelor/bachelorette parties, graduations & corporate outings. With spectacular views of the downcity skyline, Waterplace Park and the Providence River, you can create an experience that you and your guests will never forget!

We Have Moved! We are now located inside The Landing, located at 101 Dyer Street, Providence, RI. Come inside The Landing to check-in for your charter and explore our new Rhode Island-themed gallery, giftshop and creamery! 

  • Private charters can be booked for one hour, an hour and a half, or two hours. Our private charters are available 6 days/week, May through November 1st. (Closed Tuesdays/Wednesdays but we try to accommodate your group when possible.)

Capacity & Rates:

  • Our max capacity is (18) passengers per boat, and we have two identical boats. Therefore, we can accommodate up to (36) passengers at one time, between the two boats.
  • One hour: $400 (plus gratuity) up to (18) passengers
  • Ninety-minutes: $500 (plus gratuity) up to (18) passengers
  • Two hours: $650 (plus gratuity) up to (18) passengers
  • A 18% gratuity is added to each private charter reservation. Our Captains and Crew appreciate your additional cash gratuities.
  • Full payment is due upon making your charter reservation. If we must cancel your charter due to severe weather conditions, you will have an option to reschedule or receive a refund.  Please see the Weather-Related Cancellation policy below.

Food & Beverage:

  • You can BYOB in your own coolers or grab beverages from our store to bring aboard with you.
  • Food can also be brought aboard, but we suggest that you keep it simple. (ie: bring cupcakes, not a cake, for a birthday celebration.) Guests typically bring boxed meals, sandwich platters, fruit and cheese platters, and pizza. We suggest Whole Foods Catering, Ellie’s Bakery, Cozy Caterers & the Pearl Street Café for your catering needs, but you can bring food from any vendor of your choice.

To Tour or Not To Tour:

  • Some guests prefer to listen to our narrated tour, while others prefer to socialize with some tunes in the background, it’s totally up to YOU! For background music, our vessels are equipped with Bluetooth technology, a sound system, Sirius XM and Pandora, or you can connect your own phone/playlist to our Bluetooth.

What to Bring:

  • The boats are uncovered, please dress appropriately. Hats, sunglasses, cold beverages & sunscreen are all recommended in high season. Bring jackets/windbreakers during cooler months.

Parking:

  • There are several parking garages, outdoor parking lots and on-street metered parking spaces throughout our neighborhood.
  • If you are parked at a legal metered spot on the weekend, we have found that you typically do not need to feed the meters on Saturday/Sunday. Do so at your own risk, but this is what we have experienced.
  • The Freeway Parking Garage and Arcade Parking Garage, both located behind our building, offer very reasonable parking rates.
  • We also recommend you take your hotel shuttle, Lyft or Uber, or walk from your hotel, if possible. We are centrally located in downtown and most hotels are within a 15 minute walk from us.

Charter Cancellation Policy:

  • Customers may reschedule (subject to availability) or receive a full refund with 72 hours advance cancellation notice only. Please contact us by telephone to cancel your charter.
  • Same-day cancellations, late arrivals and no-shows are non-refundable and are not eligible for rescheduling.

Weather Related Cancellations:

  • All of our charters typically run in light rain and other moderate weather conditions. We do not cancel charters due to inclement weather until approximately 15-30 minutes prior to departure, as the weather changes so quickly in New England.
  • Our charters 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 charter due to weather, you may reschedule (subject to availability) or receive a full refund.
  • We reserve the right to cancel our charters in the event of severe or unsafe weather conditions.
