What better way is there to enjoy the Autumn sky’s changing colors and fall foliage of Rhode Island than from one of Coastal Queen’s sunset cruises? You do not have to worry about the air getting cooler, as the Coastal Queen is covered, warm and weatherproof and there is an onboard bar for refreshments. As you cruise through the water, you will be able to enjoy live music from the Island Time Steel Band as well. The cruise departs from Bowen’s Wharf at 5pm and returns by 6:30pm. Be sure to arrive early to allow enough time for boarding! All of the cruises are sanitized before each run and capacity is limited to allow for socially distanced seating.


Bowen’s Wharf has so many great activities for you to enjoy year-round. Take a trip to visit us and celebrate the beautiful fall season with your family and friends at the anchor of Newport!
