Getting to Prudence Island

Prudence is ONLY accessible by a ferry that departs out of Bristol, RI. Click here for the Prudence Island Ferry Schedule. PLEASE PLAN TO ARRIVE 30 MINUTES BEFORE THE FERRY DEPARTS.

Note: Cars have VERY limited space on the ferry and require advance reservations (usually more than 2 weeks ahead.)

Walking onto the ferry is recommended.

Parking is available:

  • Directly across the street at the municipal lot daily ($10 per night for overnight)
  • Another municipal lot for daily parking across the street from the Bristol Yarn Corporation (big brick building), an easy 2-minute walk.

Once you get to Prudence (“PI”), take your shoes off, take a deep breath, and relax.
