Thank you Paul! Our Mother's Day cruise was one of the first of the season - and we're delighted you enjoyed your time on the Gansett. Our guides enjoy providing information on the many historic and natural sites along the waterfront.

Fantastic way to experience part of the day. The tour has great highlights of the area that you wouldn't normally learn on your own. The crew was friendly and fun! Sit back and enjoy!!

Yes -- but we encourage everyone to use the facility on shore before boarding as it's much more accommodating. Hope to see you and your family soon!
