A DIFFERENT VIEW
Gansett Cruises breaks away from the typical rushed harbor boat tour to offer a quiet relaxing and delightful cruise of Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay's East Passage in our comfortably cushioned and sun-shaded deck, or our top 'sunny side' deck. Our guides, many of whom grew up on these waters, are enthused to share the legends and rich history of their homeport.
ABOARD A CLASSIC
It's just the feeling you get from being on a well-appointed private yacht that makes M/V Gansett so special. Built in 1969 in Maine, as a passenger vessel, she was later a working lobster boat that would drop off her catch right where we are now docked. The open deck plan, comfortably cushioned seating and broad sun canopy create a pleasant cruising experience. Modern amenities aboard.
WITH RHODE ISLAND SPECIALTIES
On every cruise, there's something special and complimentary from the galley that is representative of Rhode Island cuisine and culture. The crew serves Del's Lemonade, Coffee Cabinets, RI State Clam Quahog "Stuffies", Champagne Toasts (Sunset Cruise only) and more! Guests on board discover the true flavor of The Ocean State. All compliments of the Captain. Gansett's cash bar serves a selection of Narragansett beer and an assortment of red and white wines and soft drinks.
MV Gansett has teamed up with Bird’s Eye View Helicopters to show you the best of Newport from the Sky and at Sea. Gansett is also available for private charters for motorcoach groups, weddings, cruise ship groups and special events. Phone or email for details.
