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 $12 per person after 4 pm. Visit your neighboring island for dinner and enjoy the Bay and beverages from our bar along the way! New for 2014, on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 4- 9 pm, we will also have a raw bar available on board, thanks to the super-shuckers from Benjamin's restaurant in Newport.
