Blackstone Valley Explorer

Blackstone Valley Explorer

Since its introduction in 1993, thousands of passengers toured the Blackstone River on the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council's 49 passenger riverboat the Blackstone Valley Explorer.

In Woonsocket, the Explorer leaves from the Woonsocket Landing near Market Square. Woonsocket's industrial past is the focus of the Thundermist Tour. You will see a number of local landmarks and hear interesting stories about the city's past and present. Family Halloween fun awaits passengers on the Haunted River Tour as they search for friendly spooks, ghosts and goblins along the river's shore.

The Blackstone Valley Explorer is generally in Woonsocket during August, September and October. Public tours are held on Saturday, Sunday and on holidays from 1:00 to 4:00. All seats are $6.00, and reservations are recommended. See the River Tours website or contact the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council at 401-724-2200 for additional information.
