Gansett Cruises - Harbor Tours, Sunset Cruises and Private Charters from Newport Harbor, Rhode Island. Cruise in Comfort Aboard M/V Gansett and enjoy a 90 minute narrated harbor tour with a complimentary Rhode Island taste treat. On your Gansett cruise you'll break away from the typical rushed harbor tour to offer a quiet, relaxing and delightful historic cruise through Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay's East Passage on our comfortably cushioned and sun-shaded deck, or our top 'sunny side' deck. Our guides are enthused to share the legends and rich history of the famous "city by the sea" - home of the legendary America's Cup 12 meter boats and gilded-age mansions.

8 of us booked a 3:30 tour of the harbor. It was very pleasant. Our guide Patrick was so friendly and informative. Very reasonably prices at $24, for Seniors, $26 for others.

The "harbour tour with a historical view" on Bowen's wharf in Newport Rhode Island was really great! Johnny was the tour guide with lots of interesting information and Kathy as the crew was efficient, beautiful and fun. I would do it again!!
