Our Location:
A leisurely 25-minute walk, or 10-minute drive from the RI Convention Center, Kennedy Plaza and all major downtown hotels, our docks are located at The Fox Point Marina at 525 South Water Street, Providence, RI 02903. There is ample on-street parking throughout the neighborhood and a small parking lot in front of the marina that you may use on class mornings. We will meet you at the marina gate, located on the far left side of the fence.

What To Wear/Bring:
Please wear comfortable clothing, boat shoes or sneakers. Our boats are uncovered, so we suggest sunglasses, hats, sunscreen and a light windbreaker, if necessary. Bring bottled water and/or cold beverages in a small hand-held cooler.
