Newport is the largest recreational boat harbour on the west coast of the USA and is a popular destination for all water activities including sailing, fishing, rowing, kayaking, boating and stand-up paddle boating. Our group first did a brief walking tour of the Bayfront Boardwalk with its quaint shops and cosy cafes before taking a cruise of the harbour in a Duffy Boat. During the very enjoyable and relaxing guide accompanied cruise we heard about Newport Harbour’s history while viewing sea life, beautiful homes, historical landmarks and magnificent yachts. Some of the local restaurants offer a Dock & Dine experience; Moor your craft and eat at the restaurant or have dinner delivered to your boat for an intimate on-the-water meal. Very posh!
