Save The Bay’s two-hour Seal and Lighthouse Tours set to begin on Nov. 19 in Newport

NEWPORT, R.I. – Nov. 8, 2016 – While the first of this season’s Save The Bay’s Newport Seal Tours will begin on Friday, November 11, the organization’s two-hour Seal-Lighthouse tours will launch a week later, on Saturday, November 19, combining the best of the Newport Seal Tours with a tour of one of Rhode Island’s most beloved historic lighthouses. The first Seal-Lighthouse Tour departs from Bowen’s Ferry Landing at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19. As the two-hour tour cruises through historic Newport Harbor, guests will take in 360° views of seals resting on Citing Rock off of Rose Island and enjoy an off-boat tour of the beautiful and historic Rose Island Lighthouse. Seal tours are held most Saturdays and Sundays from November 11 through April 31, plus some public school vacation days, while Seal-Lighthouse Tours will be held on select weekends each month from November 2016 to April 2017, beginning on Nov. 19 and 20.

“These tours are longer than our typical one-hour seal tours, in that we add another hour to enjoy beautiful Rose Island Light. Passengers will get a guided tour of both grounds as well as the lighthouse, where they will have the amazing opportunity to climb up to the top of the light,” said Dan Blount, education spet and boat captain.

Save The Bay has offered seal tours for more than 15 years throughout the months of October through April, when harbor seals come into the harbor to feed. Unlike visits to a zoo or aquarium, these boat tours offer guests the exclusive experience of catching winter seals in their natural habitat. And unlike Save The Bay’s shorter seal tours, these two-hour cruises include the lighthouse tour component. Save The Bay marine experts will provide an educational overview of harbor seals, Rhode Island’s recently-named official state marine mammal, and an historical perspective on Rose Island Light.

The two-hour Seal and Lighthouse Tours are $42 for non-members, $32 for members, seniors and children ages 3-12 and $5 for children under the age of three. These tours depart from Bowen’s Ferry Landing, 18 Market Square, Newport, RI. Tour tickets can be purchased online at Save The Bay’s Seal Tour website,, or through the Bowen’s Wharf kiosk in downtown Newport. For additional information call 401-203-7325.
