Loved the Seal and Harbor Tour from Wickford

Took our 3 grandsons yesterday. Lots of seals. Over 30 in one area alone. They loved seeing the seals and enjoyed the boat ride too. It was a great time for all of us.—Butch A., 2024 Facebook review (photo courtesy of istock/Giblin)

Wonderful Tour

Wonderful tour, very informative, beautiful day out on the water, Thank You!! —Denise W., 2022 Facebook Review (photo courtesy of J. Dickinson)

Fun Way To See the Newport Shore

This is a great way to see the harbor and houses around Newport. We were worried about it being too cool this time of year, but there are enclosed areas and it wasn't an issue at all. You get a Mimosa in hand when you walk on board - great way to start! Narration was entertaining and informative. Recommend if you only have a short time in Newport to see the boats and lighthouses.—Wolfshadow, 2023 Trip Advisor review (photo courtesy of J. Giblin)

Incredible Amazing Crew

The crew was so incredible. They were so patient with my grandmother and kind to us! They kept checking on us to make sure she was ok and were so nice to us.—Jordan C., Trip Advisor review (photo courtesy of J. Giblin)

Foggy But Fun Cruise

We enjoyed our boat tour even though the weather was cloudy and foggy. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. They even offered to take pictures of us, which we appreciated.—Lisa L., 2023 Trip Advisor review (photo courtesy of J. Giblin)

So Glad We Did This!

Our son is in a large power wheelchair so it can be a challenge to find true wheelchair accessibility. This was great! Everyone was so nice from the staff at ticket counter to the boat staff to the captain. It was a beautiful, informative outing.—Suzanne G., 2023 Trip Advisor review (photo courtesy of Suzanne G.)

Special Boat Tour

This was a very nice narrated tour and great information on the area! Highly recommend for a tour that has seating, both inside and out. [There is a] Restroom and full bar.—Arlene A., 2023 Trip Advisor review (photo courtesy of Arlene A.)

We Chartered the Coastal Queen

On our wedding weekend, we charted the Coastal Queen for an hour-long reception cruise around the harbor. The staff were attentive, friendly, and professional. They helped get our party aboard and took us to some nice photo opportunities near the rocks and under the bridge. For a group of about 40, we didn't feel cramped in the slightest. Plenty of room, and they had a great selection of beer and wine available.—Joseph B., 2021 Google review (photo courtesy of J.M.)

The Lighthouse and Mimosa Cruise

We did the mimosa and lighthouse cruise and it was great!! Knowledgeable tour guides and great mimosas (and a cash bar if you want anything else). —J.C., 2023 Email (photo courtesy of J.C.)

There's a Bar Inside

Great excursion to take a tour of Newport and all it’s history. Staff are very nice and knowledgeable. The ship itself is clean and comfortable. There are plenty of seats inside as well as outside. There’s a bar inside with a great bartender (Karen) with plenty of seats and drinks! Overall great experience and tour. —Vellentie V., 2023 Google review (photo courtesy of Vellentie V.)

Beautiful Setting for Our Private Event

I cannot thank you both enough for your crew and staff as well as a BEAUTIFUL setting for our event!!! —Jeanne G., 2023 Email (photo courtesy of A. Medeiros)

Private Transport for a Goat Island Wedding

Thanks so much for all your help in making our cruise a success. Our guests loved the experience. The captain and crew were awesome too. —Drew W., 2023 Email (photo courtesy of A. Medeiros)

Helpful Charter Planning

Thank you for all your help [with planning their private charter] and the emails and calls back and forth to make the rehearsal day an incredible experience. Everything went really well and everyone loved the boat. The entire crew was amazing. —Marcela B., 2023 Email (photo courtesy of J. Giblin)

Wonderful Experience

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. It was a beautiful day, comfortable boat and the guides were interesting and had a sense of humor. Seeing Newport from the water was one highlight of our stay. Thank you! —mandg2011, 2023, Trip Advisor review (photo courtesy of D.D.)

The Cocktail Was Delicious

"This was an awesome cruise. If you get the opportunity to take it, then by all means, do so, you won’t regret it. Very attentive staff. An overall wonderful experience. The cocktail [the one included with the Evening Cocktail Cruise ticket] was delicious." —Denise M., 2021 Google review (photo courtesy of S.J.)

Friendly Staff

Every staff member was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Could not have asked for a more informative group. —Robin P., 2021 Yelp review (photo courtesy of A. Medieros)

Part of Our Annual Newport Trip

We chose the Mimosa tour and it exceeded our expectations. Buying tickets online was a breeze, as was the check-in. Captain and crew were professional. Brian who narrated our tour answered questions with great detail and enthusiasm. The skies opened up before we left the dock. While passengers on sailboats got drenched, we remained comfortable under a canopy. —Diana S., 2021 Google review (photo courtesy of D.W)

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 Google review (photo courtesy of B.Munger)
