Let us float your party!

Charter the Jamestown Newport Ferry for your special party and give your guests an event to remember. We cater to business meetings, company outings, weddings, reunions, anniversaries, birthdays, and other events. Two vessels are available for charter: Katherine, a 46-passenger Down East Style vessel that provides regular ferry service, and the Jamestown, our 34-passenger boat. Both have full liquor licenses to accommodate the bar on-board, and we are happy to accommodate your special requests. We can also assist in arranging food for your guests.   


If you are interested in a charter on one of our vessels, please complete our charter request form.
