“Launching out of Central Falls”

Explorer River Tours
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Our 40-passenger tour boat will bring you on an intriguing and relaxing tour in the Blackstone River Valley. For the last 25 years, hundreds of thousands of passengers have come to learn and discover interesting facts about Rhode Island’s Blackstone Valley, and see the quiet beauty many are often surprised to find! On these tours you will hear stories of the workers, residents and early settlers of the Blackstone River Valley and what it took to make our region what it is today. As the 50-minute tours wind along the waters and foliaged riverbanks you may get a chance to see the great blue heron, hawks, deer, turtles, or even the returning Bald Eagle, that live along our renewed waterways.

This was a fantastic, fun experience for all ages! Our tour guide was informative and interactive! They really give you a look at the Blackstone River with a history lesson all at once and it is beautiful! I highly recommend this family friendly, inexpensive tour for everyone!

My family loved this tour. We went on a cloudy day and still were able to see quite a bit. My 4.5 year old son enjoyed the scavenger hunt they provided, and my husband and father both enjoyed learning about the history of the area.

I've taken all three tours with my wife. The ticketing and operations were all very professional. The tour guides were very friendly and informative. The tour takes you though areas along the River which are extremely important from an environmental and historical perspective. It was really quite a bit of fun.
