Host a unique private event on the Providence waterways! Our charters are perfect for birthdays, bachelor/bachelorettes, graduations, gals/guys night out & corporate outings. With spectacular views of the downcity skyline, Waterplace Park and the Providence River, you can create an experience that your guests will never forget!
Personalized Private Tours
- We typically leave from the Hot Club and head up the Providence River, along Riverwalk and into Waterplace Park. Then we head south, through the Fox Point Hurricane Barrier and out into the Providence Industrial Harbor, before returning to our docks. We can also take you towards India Point Park and the Seekonk River, if you wish. Charters are booked in 60-minute increments, but we can tailor our rides to fit your specific needs. Need shorter trips to accommodate more guests in a shorter period of time? No problem! We are very flexible and are happy to help you create the perfect event for your group!
- Your charter can include our narrated tour, or you can socialize within your group with or without music in the background. It's totally up to you!
Food & Beverage
- You can purchase beverages at the Hot Club dock bar or you may BYOB. We have large coolers that you may use or you may bring your own. We recommend Bottles Fine Wine for your alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. They offer a fine selection of beer, wine and liquor with superior customer service. Dock delivery is available for a $5 flat fee.
- Food can also be brought aboard. We recommend Cozy Caterers in Warwick, RI. Don't forget to mention that you'll need "boat friendly" catering recommendations when calling.
- Booking a morning cruise? We're big fans of PVDonuts. Honestly, you can't ask for a more delicious donut selection and they're right down the road from us!
