About Us

Part of Our Annual Newport Trip

For our annual trip to Newport, we chose the Mimosa Lighthouse tour this year and it exceeded our expectations. Buying tickets online was a breeze, as was the check-in. Captain and crew were polite, professional and engaging. Brian who narrated our tour was very knowledgeable and answered many questions with great detail and enthusiasm. The weather is always the variable and the skies opened up before we left the dock. While passengers on sailboats got drenched, we remained comfortable under a canopy. —Diana S., 2021 review on Google

Ample Room Compared to Other Tour Boats

What a great harbor cruise! My family and I typically take one of the other boats but discovered the Coastal Queen after our last cruise had been canceled due to a breakdown. We actually enjoyed the Queen much more as it has ample indoor and outdoor seating as well as a bar and normal bathrooms. Will definitely cruise again! —Austin S., 2021 review on Google
