Regular Ferry service has ended for the season. Stay tuned for 2018 updates in the spring!

The Jamestown Newport Ferry offers scenic transportation on lower Narragansett Bay as well as in Newport Harbor and provides easy access for visiting a variety of destinations where you will find many opportunities for sightseeing, historical tours, museum visits, shopping and dining. A round-trip ticket allows passengers to hop on and off the Ferry as often as desired. One-way fares are also available. 

Take advantage of our Evening Special, where round-trip adult tickets are discounted to $14 per person after 4 pm. Visit your neighboring island for dinner and enjoy the Bay and beverages from our bar along the way!
