Directions to BB Riverboats

We’d love to pick you up, but our boats don’t have wheels, so here is how to find us!

All of our cruises leave from Newport Landing Dock, which is located at 101 Riverboat Row, at the foot of Columbia St. adjacent to Newport Aquarium. Don’t worry about paying for parking; we’ve got you covered! Public Parking is available on Riverboat Row and in the surface lot on Columbia St.

One last thing! We know you love your GPS, but don’t use it to find us. Because we are located on the water, your phone won’t know how to get you here. If you have any questions go to our contact page and we would be happy to help you!
