Group Day Trips & Overnights

The National Hotel has hosted many tour groups for both day trips and overnights. We work directly with the Block Island Ferry from Pt. Judith, RI and we are happy to accommodate groups from other destinations as well such as New London, Montauk and Newport.

The day trip package with the Pt. Judith ferry includes round trip transportation, a three course lunch on the porch overlooking the harbor and a guided one hour tour of the island. There is also time during the day to explore the shops and downtown area.

The overnight package is available midweek, Sunday through Thursday, in May, June and September. It can include round trip ferry, baggage handling, overnight accommodations and meals upon request.
