BOATING WITHOUT CROWDS
Take a “time out” with Captain Doug on NewportPhotoBoat. Set yourself free to enjoy the harbor and bay without the canned tour and lack of privacy. Sit back, stretch out and relax on the perfect cushion. Bring your own snacks and beverages and enjoy the view. Go where you want to go and hang out where you want to hang out. Take it slow and easy gliding around the harbor or open it up and go exploring around the bay, find the perfect spot to swim, go exploring, have a picnic. Drift away. It’s like having your own boat. RESERVE EARLY. BOATING SEASON BEGINS MAY 15, 2019. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay.

Perfect two hour trip around the harbor. Doug and Marcia were amazing hosts to us and our 16 month old daughter. Would recommend this to anyone looking to get out on a boat in Newport.
