Portsmouth
Portsmouth, RI

Welcome to Freedom Boat Club of Portsmouth:
Enchanting, epic and festive.

Portsmouth sits east of Narragansett Bay on Aquidneck Island (the largest island in the Bay), and our club is just north of Newport, Rhode Island.  Settled in 1683 and founded by the signing of the Portsmouth Compact, the epic nature of this town makes it an enchanting destination for those who enjoy historic America.

The island itself is beholding to see, and is packed with blissful bicycle trails and vineyards to explore before or after your outing. And just a short boat ride away you will find historic Battleship Cove and picturesque Bristol Harbor where you can pull in for some great shopping, delicious dockside dining, or homemade ice cream.

On other days, visit historic Newport and Wickford harbors where you can dock and enjoy fresh local fare while taking in the beautiful surroundings.  After lunch, take a leisurely cruise to view the world famous Newport Mansions, Hammersmith Farm (the former summer home of Jaquelyn Onasis Kennedy), or post card picturesque Mackeral Cove where the only thing you will need to be worry about is your kids laughing too hard as they cannon ball you time and time again.

Speaking of kids, they will find endless hours of enjoyment and build memories for a lifetime as they swim, tube, fish, and enjoy exploring the many coves on the bay..not to mention experiencing the sights and sounds of the Blue Angles screaming a mere 300 feet overhead at the annual air show.

And as you head home, you will certainly want to take your time to soak in the amazing sunsets as you drift back up the Sakonnet River knowing that reality is about to set in all too soon.  Perhaps a dip in the marina pool before you head home will delay reality just a little bit longer.

Landmark

Battleship Cove

Don't just learn about history-live it! At Battleship Cove, you will experience firsthand what it was like to serve on board a Navy warship in WWII. You can sound the diving horn on Submarine Lionfish before you slip below the sea...you can crank the handwheels on Big Mamie's 40-mm guns as you knock enemy planes from the sky....

But your journey doesn't end there. Sail through the Cold War on USS Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. and learn how the ship's unmanned helicopter hunted Soviet submarines. Or climb on board a high-speed missile corvette that the Soviets designed to fight us.

Whether you're a die-hard naval history buff or a casual enthusiast of military hardware, you'll have much to discover at Battleship Cove!

 


Fort Adams

Make history come alive for every member of your family. Just a short drive or a water taxi ride across Newport Harbor stands the largest coastal fortification in the United States. Visit this engineering and architectural masterpiece to see where the soldiers lived, enter the casemates, explore the tunnel system, and climb the bastions for breathtaking views. Consider renting the Fort with its 6-acre parade field or North lawn on the water for your special function. Watch for our upcoming special events including military reenactments, music festivals, and classic vehicle shows. From 1824 to 1950 Fort Adams housed generations of our soldiers, today it still stands ready for your enjoyment.
