        Good but...
        Sahil_P, June 2022
        The Waterfire was great and so was the boat ride! The missing piece was that if you're not sitting on the side of the boat facing the Waterfire you pretty much just see people in front of you and need to keep adjusting your posture and face to get a good look and pic. So either charge a lower price for people who don't get a direct look at the fire or take the second circle in the opposite direction
        Response from Host, July 2022
        Thanks for sending in the review Sahil, this is an interesting opinion. Our (18) passenger, open air touring vessels were built specifically for us so that we could fit under all of the bridges in downtown Providence, including the Waterplace Park bridges in and around the WaterFire events. In my opinion, there isn't really a "better" seat on the boat for WaterFire, due to the fact that our boats are completely open, with open railings on each side, and the fact that we drive within just a few feet of the burning fires. To my knowledge, nobody has complained about this in 25 years of running our WaterFire rides, so it's difficult for me to respond to your comments further. In any event, I'm glad you enjoyed the tour! Enjoy the rest of your summer.
        Must try trip in Providence, RI

        The entire experience of the boat ride, water fire, music and the darkness felt almost medieval almost like Game of Thrones setting!😊
