This fishing port of Galilee is a great place to walk around and observe the many interesting things that it has to offer. There are lots commercial fishing boats and other boats available to charter. You can buy fresh lobster and fish right on the dock! This is where you can catch the Block Island Ferry! It is even fun... More

This is such a sweet town, chocked full of fishing history! There are excellent restaurants with live music and you can catch the ferry over to Block Island or go deep Sea fishing with one of several fleets.

This is an authentic New England seaport. Not one of those fabricated ones to attract the tourist dollar. There is the Block Island boat which takes autos and passengers to, of course, Block Island. A great trip to a real nice island. There are fish markets, locally owned restaurants, a clean beach with clean water, and a stone getty from... More

At the very end of the Narragansett strip of incredible beaches and surf - make the time to visit the old fishing village of Galilee - where you take the ferry to Block Island. Not much to say about all the fried food- but nice harbor and beach

My wife and I visited Galilee to see some of the Rhode Island coast and to eat lunch at George's. We enjoyed viewing the boats and ferry going and coming through the harbor. In October, there is little activity, yet on a sunny day it is a real treat to have the town to your self and a few others.

Galilee fishing village in Naragansett R.I. is a small but busy place. Lots of restaurants, live music and Salty Brine Beach. Also it is the main Ferry pickup to Block Island. They have also the express block island ferry. There's also a few gift shops in Galilee. Love this place! I've been going there for 25 plus years.

One of the largest fishing community in New England. When the fish is being processed , you can smell that you are in a fishing area.

This is a small working harbor town with fishing boats and the Block Island Ferry calling it home. There are plenty of gift shops, a nice beach with a rock jetty, and views of the ships coming and going down the channel from many vantage points. For a relaxed laid back afternoon, we did lunch on the deck at George's... More

Planned on staying the night but when we saw how nasty the hotel was and that there really wasn't anything to do but drink all day we chose to head to Providence, RI. Luckily the hotel was nice enough to give us a full refund.
