Warren Home Port
Warren was the site of the Indian village of Sowams on the peninsula called Pokanoket (the near parts now called Mount Hope Neck), and was first explored by Europeans in 1621, by Edward Winslow and Stephen Hopkins. By the next year, Plymouth Colony had established a trading post at Sowams.
Warren sits on the east bank of the Warren River, an arm of Narragansett Bay, and is bounded by the towns of Barrington, Bristol and Swansea, Massachusetts. A 1748 census indicates a population of 380 people in the town, 30 of whom were Native Americans. Warren received its name from the British naval hero, Admiral Sir Peter Warren, who had been victorious at the battle of Louisburg in June 1745.
The City of Newport is located at the southern end of Aquidneck Island in Narragansett Bay, about 30 miles southeast of Rhode Island's capital of Providence. The City is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the south, Narragansett Bay on the west, and by the Town of Middletown on the northeast. Newport is 11 square miles in size, with 7.7 square miles of land and 3.3 square miles of inland water. Plan a trip from Warren to Newprot for Lunch.
Bristol and Prudence Island
A bay cruise to Bristol Harbor and Prudence Island.
Bristol Boat building and related industries have played a major role in the life of Bristol since the early 17th century. The Bristol community has always been interwoven with the sea. From its earliest settlers ferrying produce to Providence to shipping merchants dealing in the slave trade, Bristol has seen a constant ebb and flow of maritime trade. Today Bristol is still home to numerous internationally renowned boat builders, some with America's Cup yachts in their portfolios In 1995, Bristol became home to the America's Cup Hall of Fame (located in the Herreshoff Maritime Museum), which celebrates participants and the colorful history of this most famous yacht race.
A walk through Bristol will take you back in a history that spans three centuries. Bristol, Rhode Island is a quintessential New England waterfront town with an unwavering commitment to preservation. The town center is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a comfortable pedestrian haven offering shaded walks in a veritable urban arboretum of mature trees.
Prudence Island, in the middle of Narragansett Bay, is a wonderful, beautiful surprise, particularly for those burned out by the heavy traffic, high prices, and hordes of people who afflict other New England summer spots in "high season". We’ll anchor in a protected harbor with a small shell beach, and enjoy a spectular sunset from the middle of the Bay.
The quaint waterfront town of Wickford, RI, known for its famous summer art show Wickford is an photographers and artist delight. One of the most picturist harbors on the entire Bay, a great layover for any boater. Great shops of all types, easy walking distnace from the town dock.
