Disappointing trip
Laurie_G, May 2023
I was told when I booked it that it was on a sailboat and it was not on a sailboat. It was a double decker tour boat. I was also told it was 2 hours long and it was only an hour and 15 minutes long. When I asked the lady that checked us in she was rude and just said “Nope it’s not a sailboat”. I would not have been nearly as upset if I hadn’t called to be sure it was on a sailboat and talked to 2 different people. And a very small mimosa. Additional drinks were $11.00 for 6oz.
This was a lovely and...

This was a lovely and quiet place to stay outside of the hustle and bustle of the town of Newport. We had a peaceful time here and recommend it to others.
Great boat ride

The tour guide was super knowledgeable and friendly. Great weather and the ride was so much fun! Doesn’t hurt that we had mimosas too. The lighthouses were so cool!
Just do it!

Beautiful way to spend an hour and a half! So many sights were seen that you can’t see from land! Didn’t realize how many light houses there are In Newport!
Fun family outing in Newport!

Highly Recommended for Last Minute Getaway
Samantha_C, Aug 2022
The trip to RI was a last minute trip from New York and just what we needed to clear our minds. The Lighthouse and Mimosa Cruse of Narragansett is by far the most comfortable, educational and welcoming we have done this summer. The crew was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. We rated them 5 out of 5 with high recommendations.
Mimosas, Bay Breeze & Bloody Mary

Relaxing, fun, informative! Enjoyable way to spend a couple hours. The lighthouses and historic places are interesting. The staff was also helpful and it was a fun atmosphere. .
Don't use Viator booking
jack_p, July 2022
The cruise was probably wonderful. However Viator had a "glitch" in the system and did not book it properly. Do not use Viator to book tours in Newport. Our other tour was canceled supposedly to bad weather. Then we find out someone got a stake through their chest boasting the boat. Awful experience!
Highly recommend!
Julia_T, July 2022
Great narration and mimosas! Loved the tour. It was our day in Newport and our first excursion. A wonderful first impression!
Wonderful tour!
Amanda_L, July 2022
The tour was fantastic. Complimentary drink on arrival, everyone was incredibly friendly. I especially enjoyed the amazing lady providing us all the info about different things we were seeing. It was a pleasant viewing experience from inside the boat, on the back of the boat, the front and top deck—didn’t matter where you were standing it provided an amazing view. Thank you for a great time!
