Sakonnet River, RI

Sakonnet River, RI

The Sakonnet River, lying between Aquidneck Island and the mainland, is easternmost of the Narragansett north-south waterways. Many fishermen and recreational boats use the 13-mile-long river named Saughkonet by the Wampanoag people for “black goose place.” Its waters and anchorages seem dramatically quiet, particularly in comparison to the crowded waters of Newport, located not far to the west.
