Responsible tourism is about respecting the environment, learning about regional culture and contributing towards local economy. Save The Bay's lighthouse tours encompass this in a day-long (9:00am-4:00pm) journey of discovering the historic lighthouses of Narragansett Bay. Sail down the West Passage to Newport and return home via the East Passage, viewing more than twenty active and inactive lighthouses, including a tour of Rose Island light. Discover the lighthouses that played important role in history of the Bay and are actively assisting in marine navigation. These tours offers participants historic Bay lighthouses against a backdrop of wild and beautiful fall colors! David Kelleher, a Friend of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse and an expert member of the American Lighthouse Foundation, will provide narration. Tour proceeds are used toward educating urban students about the Bay. A part of the proceeds support the restoration of Rose Island and Pomham Rocks Lighthouse. Major portions of the proceeds provide environmental education program services to local urban and underserved schools to build better future stewards of the Bay.

"My boyfriend and I took a Save The Bay lighthouse cruise on July 31 and had a wonderful time. The weather was great, our captain and tour guide were very knowledgeable and the views of the lighthouses were stunning! I'm so glad that I came across your advertisement in Lighthouse Digest magazine. Keep up the great work and thanks again for such a wonderful experience." ~ S. Brown
