The 8 Best Booze Cruises in Rhode Island!

Home to the sailing capital of the world—Newport—Rhode Island is the perfect place to take a booze cruise! Grab a beer or a glass of wine and gaze out over the water as the captains of these boats take care of the rest! Here are the best booze cruises in the Ocean State. 

1. Rum Runner II, Newport, RI

On the Rum Runner, you can recreate the chases of smuggler boats during America’s days of Prohibition. That’s when the Rum Runner was built, back in 1929, when mobsters used it to escape the Coast Guard. Now, enjoy a morning Lighthouse and Mimosa Cruise or a Smugglers Cocktail Cruise all through the summer.

2. Providence River Boat Company, Providence, RI

Enjoy a sunset cruise through the Providence River, Riverwalk, Waterplace Park, and the Fox Point Hurricane Barrier with the Providence River Boat Company. The sunset cruises rates are $22 for adults and $17 for children. The tour runs for 50 minutes and guests over 21 are welcome to order a drink from the deck bar! 

3. 12 Meter Charters, Newport, RI

Enjoy sightseeing from this fantastic boat! Your package can also include a vineyard tour or day at the spa—great options for bachelorette parties. Want to get up early? Morning cruises (with or without mimosas) are also an option.

4. Classic Cruises of Newport’s Schooner Madeline, Newport, RI

Headed to Newport for the first time? This is one of the best ways to get a feel on the area’s geography. You’ll love hosting a party or sailing with a pal on this 72-foot boat, which was designed to carry plenty of passengers on smooth, safe sails!

5. Adirondack II, Newport, RI

Climb on board a full moon sail with the Schooner Adirondack II, which boards from Bowens Wharf nearly every night. The ride is the perfect choice for a romantic evening out. Want to head out during the afternoon? Try the Sails and Ales tour, featuring brews from Fool Proof Brewery!

6. Snappa Charters, Newport, RI

Snappa offers both sunset leisure cruises and longer sightseeing tours with commentary on Rhode Island’s historic shoreline. Enjoy watching lobster boats haul in their load for the day, or tug boats bulling in barges, all as you sip on drinks or nibble on hors d’oeuvres. 

7. Gansett Cruise, Newport, RI

Comfy seats, a shady canopy, and an open deck—that’s what makes a Gansett cruise so special. Hop on board to this restored lobster boat, which can hold up to 49 passengers. 

8. Sloop Eleanor, Newport, RI

Both of Sailing Excursion’s boats are perfectly outfitted for a contemporary party experience, whether you’re looking for an event that’s classy or casual. Hop on for a Fourth of July cruise to the Jamestown fireworks celebration. Or book a dark and stormy night aboard the sloop for just $32 per adult.
