Bowen's Wharf is located in the heart of Newport harbor, walking distance to many houses of worship and with such prime downtown location comes our own private marina where you can feel free to dock your own vessel while in town for a wedding weekend and book a private party on our waterfront patio. Or for those without a boat to call their own, Sightsailing of Newport offers both public tours and private charters starting May 14, perfect for a wedding party or bachelorette weekend. Adventurous sailors will want to consider 12 Meter Charters for Classic Yacht options and Gansett Cruises for a leisurely harbor tour where even pets are welcome! Bowen's Wharf Company also offers site rental with tent, a wonderful option for those requesting a little more privacy. Call our Pilot House for more information, to book a photo session or to assist with water-tour bookings at 401-849-3478. Or, you might want to start with the dress...Andria Bird Bride, a charming, curated bridal shop with designer and custom options. Start your wedding planning at the Anchor of Newport!
