Visit beaches, enjoy a sunset cruises, stop at quaint New England villages, enjoy some casual fishing or see RI Lighthouses, we can do it all. Let's design a trip just for you! KayakRunner is a multi-purpose boat that can handle rough water, if needed, yet float in eight inches of water. Currently she is operating in Narragansett Bay and the Rhode Island South County area including Block Island.
This new Imemsa Panga powered by a quiet Yamaha 4 stroke is capable offshore and inshore. Step off the boat into ankle deep water at a secluded beach. Upon special request we can outfit the boat with kayaks. Our tandem kayaks have seats for three, each kayak can hold two adults and a child in the middle seat. A single paddler can sit in the middle seat, turning the tandem into a single. Iced coolers with refreshments are aboard.
Fishing is encouraged. Bring your fishing license, gear and bait. KayakRunner sports a chart plotter/fish finder along with a Navionics enriched IPad to help you find the fish.
Captain Howie is a knowledgeable kayak angler and has set up KayakRunner to transport experienced kayak anglers with their fishing kayaks to distant remote fishing spots.
Four of us went out with Capt. Howie to follow the J Class boat races in Rhode Island Sound. It was a safe and wonderful day. We all enjoyed seeing the J Class boats and Capt. Howie's knowledge about the race, time, location, spectator area, etc. He had prepared for our charter and was tuned into the VHF channel for the race information. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Capt. Howie and would recommend him and his boat which was seaworthy and comfortable.
Capt. Howie did a great job. We were conducting a University research project in the Upper Narragansett Bay and Capt. Howie was able to put us "spot on" to our survey sites. A successful project, and we were able to eat fish that evening.
We had an awesome late Summer sunset cruise with Captain Howie in Newport. The entire experience was seamless from booking & planning to cruising. The 3.5 - 4 hour ride included cruising both of the Newport and Jamestown harbors with up close viewing of several lighthouses in between. Getting off of the boat briefly and grabbing ice cream in Jamestown was a nice touch. Captain Howie's overall knowledge of the area, the water, and the way his boat handles were very impressive.
Capt. Howie made our experience out on the water a great one. He was very knowledgable about the area. He was able to pick us up at a spot that was convenient for us and had a great itinerary planned out that he made after asking what type of boating trip we were planning on. Will definitely use Capt Howie again!
