Personalized Private Tours
- We typically leave from the Hot Club and head up the Providence River, along Riverwalk and then into Waterplace Park. Then we head south, through the Fox Point Hurricane Barrier and out into the Providence Industrial Harbor, before returning to the docks. Private charters are booked in 60-minute increments, but we can tailor your charter 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 particular group!
Food & Beverage
- You can purchase beverages at the Hot Club dock bar or you may BYOB. We have large coolers aboard that you may use or you can bring your own. We recommend Gasbarro Wines on Federal Hill 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.
- Food can also be brought aboard. We recommend Cozy Caterers in Warwick, RI for all of your catering needs. Don't forget to mention that you'll need "boat friendly" catering recommendations when calling.
- We're also huge fans of PVDonuts. Honestly, you can't ask for a more delicious donut selection and they're super friendly, too!
