WaterFire® is a work of art that involves movement, participation and surprise. Wood boats stoke the fires, rivers flow quietly beneath the braziers, sparks whirl through the night air & flames reflect off the dark surface of the water, animating the architectural fabric of the city. 

Full WaterFire Rides: An awesome 30-minute cruise throughout the 80+ fires of the Providence River, Riverwalk & Waterplace Park.
Pre-Light the Night Cruises: Our new "pre-lighting" cruises allow you to experience the serenity of the Providence waterways BEFORE the WaterFires are lit. Enjoy a relaxing one-hour cruise throughout Waterplace Park, Riverwalk and the Providence River with complimentary adult beverages, fresh fruit, cheese & crackers.
