Rum Runner II Excursion Tours
The Rum Runner II offers adventurous motor boat tours of Newport Harbor that typically last about 75 minutes each. The Rum Runner II was built in 1929 for mobsters in New Jersey who needed to elude Coast Guard authorities during Prohibition. The Rum Runner II was a fast ship in its day and has subsequently been upgraded with two twin-turbo 350 horsepower motors. Rum Runner II offers daily tours out of Bannisters Wharf.
