Blackstone River Cruises

175 Main Street
Pawtucket, RI 02860


The Blackstone River, and its tributaries, are splendid places to uncover by taking a guided tour on the Explorer riverboat, chartering the Samuel Slater canal boat for an overnight stay, or exploring on your own by kayak or canoe. The peacefulness, beauty, and wildlife you can now find along the river is a bold juxtaposition from the rough industrial past that birthed America's Industrial Revolution and made us famous.

Whether you're a tourist visiting Rhode Island's National Park, a local resident wanting to learn more about your backyard, or someone simply looking for a fun and unique experience, we love to share the rich history and scenic landscapes that become extra special when taken in on the waters that created them all.
