Enjoyable Sunset Cruise

"My wife and I went on the Coastal Queen sunset cruise that departs from Bowen's Wharf (near the Newport Harbor Hotel) and had a wonderful time. The boat is beautiful and very comfortable. We enjoyed the breeze from the top deck and were very comfortable on the lower enclosed deck, too. We got to see so many Newport attractions from the water."

"We had a wonderful cruise of Narragansett bay and the surrounding lighthouses on Coastal Queen Cruises. All the staff members were great and the boat was spotless. It was a perfect wedding anniversary treat for my husband... and he learnt a few new things about the history from the great cruise narrator that was onboard."
