Enjoy a one-hour scenic seal tour cruise on the Jamestown Newport Ferry that is narrated while looking for harbor and gray seals. They frequent Narragansett Bay on Citing rock, just off of Rose Island during the winter months. The elusive hard or hooded seals may also be spotted from Mid-January thru early May.
Seal tour cruises begin March 31 and run each Saturday thru April, 29 weather permitting. All seal tour cruises are scheduled around the low tide to offer the best viewing with binoculars provided.
Cruise tickets can be purchased by emailing May Munger.
Adults: $22 | Senior Citizens and Children Ages 3 - 12: $17
