Embark in Warren, Rhode Island, home to Blount Small Ship Adventures. Relax on board as you begin your cruise through Narragansett Bay, offering postcard-perfect views of rugged cliffs, classic lighthouses and gentle waves so lovely that National Geographic named it one of the Best Adventure Destinations. Tonight you’ll arrive in Cuttyhunk, a quiet island outpost off the coast of Cape Cod. (D)
