Rhode Island Lighthouse Tours
For true lighthouse aficionados!
When you join a Save The Bay Lighthouse Tour, you’ll experience Narragansett Bay’s historic lighthouse sites first hand! Enjoy breathtaking views of the Newport Pell Bridge, Gaspee Point, Prudence Island and historic Fort Adams, and be amazed by how many iconic sites you can see in just one tour.
On this 7.5-hour tour, you’ll view about 20 active and inactive lighthouse sites in Narragansett Bay. Starting in Providence, we will motor down the West Passage to Newport and return home via the East Passage. A stop at both Rose Island and Pomham rocks will provide an opportunity to explore both lighthouses and grounds. Lunch will be provided at Rose Island.
Save The Bay educators provide expert narration on all Lighthouse Tours. Discover the historic role Rhode Island’s lighthouses played in the history of the Bay and those that are actively assisting in marine navigation. Proceeds of lighthouse tours are used to support the restoration and preservation of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse and Rose Island Lighthouse.
What to Bring
Come prepared for a few hours on the water — hats, sunscreen, light outerwear for the afternoon sea breeze, and snacks. Lunch will be provided along with the drinks, water and binoculars. Bring your camera!
