WaterFire® is a work of art that involves movement, participation and surprise. It is full of motion—wood boats stoke the fires, rivers flow quietly beneath the burning braziers, sparks whirl through the night air, and flickering flames reflect off the dark surface of the water, animating the architectural fabric of the city.
These (partial lighting) WaterFire boat rides include a one hour evening cruise along the Providence waterways, with the added bonus of a partial WaterFire lighting! Join us for unparalleled views of the fires from the best seat in town!
These rides depart from the Providence Marina at 15 Bridge Street in downtown Providence, RI.
Capacity is limited to 18 passengers and reservations are required.
Everyone boarding, including infants, must have a ticket.
