Anchor in Tongue Bay and take in world famous Whitehaven Beach from the Hill Inlet lookout before walking down to the white sand. Spend

Slip into the sunset in style as we head out across the bay. Nibbles include bread/cheeses/dips and seasonal fruit. What a great way to enjoy the evening.

Fun Facts About Providence

Providence V is an 62 ft American bluenose, a replica and half the size of a Grand Banks fishing boat which plied the waters off Maine in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
