Join us on the Explorer as we tour Providence Harbor at the entrance of the Providence River. On calm days, we pass through the Fox Point Hurricane Barrier and catch great views of the beautiful and changing Providence skyline.

As we come about, we travel up the Seekonk River and pass under the Washington Bridge, the historic turnpike that enabled easier access from Providence, RI to New Bedford, MA.

Upriver toward Pawtucket, we pass by the Crook Point Bascule Bridge, (“the Stuck-up Bridge”) a changing landscape delivers opportunities to see eastern shore birds like Osprey, Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, Double-crested Cormorant, and an occasional American Bald Eagle feeding, flying, and resting.

These 50-minute tours depart on the hour at 1, 2, 3 & 4 p.m. Every Sunday through September 1. Reservations highly recommended
