Lovely spot to enjoy views of the Newport bridge and easy ferry access to Newport. Our visit was during a sleepy Labor Day and Tuesday when most restaurants were closed. Staff at the marina are professional and helpful. Shuttle service for remote parking was helpful since street parking near marina wasn't available. Floating docks are affected from occasional large wakes from the bay making boats sway vigorously in the marina-- but no problems.
Thank you for the five stars saylor! In season, you may hop on the Jamestown Newport Ferry for more restaurant options. The Port restaurant in Newport is right at the Ann Street Pier stop.

Friendly efficient launch service
by kismetsailor on Sep 02, 2019
Always professional. From your first hail, to the launch drivers, to when you leave, the crew at Conanicut is always courteous. Very much appreciated.
We are so happy to hear you had a great stay.
by waterlillysteve on Sep 01, 2019
The BEST staff & launch service. Can be rocky on busy boating days, but very quiet and calm nights. Exposed to NE and East, very protected in all other wind directions. Excellent marina with convenient ferry to NEWPORT. Plenty of reasons, restaurants and sights on JTN to not go to Newport
Wow! We love this review and thank you for the five stars. We are glad you had a great stay.
by woodspb on Aug 28, 2019
Great Staff. Friendly and really helpful.
Super, thank you for staying with us.
by eastcoaster on Aug 25, 2019
The west side of Jamestown is not a harbor. A harbor is supposed to offer a respite from wind, waves and wakes. Jamestown does none of these. The constant tossing of the boat never stopped. In fact, in the early hours of the night, it sounded like something was trying to tear the boat apart. Needless to say, we didn't get any sleep.
The Conanicut Marine was a friendly place. They run a tight ship which we witnessed when someone came and moved a mooring ball they felt was too close to us. The launch service is essential because the waves makes it almost dangerous to try and use your own tender. They are quick and competent when ferrying people around.
I would recommend this location only if there is no wind and you don't mind being tossed around by wakes of large vessels travelling the busy waters of Newport.
Sorry you had a bouncy stay. Hopefully the weather will be better if you choose to visit again. We are glad you found Conanicut Marina to be a friendly place!
by corvair63 on Aug 24, 2019
Very clean showers. Nice dock accommodations. Have dinner at Sampatico!
Yes, Simpatico is wonderful. Thank you for the five stars.
by gerrykeeler on Aug 22, 2019
Very nice. Harbor master gave good and prompt advice about entering the narrow channel with a boat drawing 7'. It's a quaint quiet picturesque town with great walking and beautiful views. Nice spot. We'll be back.
Thank you for the five stars, see you next trip.
by pfors on Aug 20, 2019
Wonderful people who go out of their way to take care of the you. This place is now a regular stop for us.
So glad to hear that and we look forward to your return visit. Thank you for the five stars.
by stanw on Aug 19, 2019
Needed a mooring for one night. Reservation was simple (DockWa). Staff quickly and efficiently responded to our radio call when we arrived and had our mooring assignment and directions to it very quickly. Looking forward to staying there again in the near future.
So glad to hear that stanw, thanks for the five stars.
by krahnsto on Aug 18, 2019
Great stay. Late booking was confirmed immediately. Marina called to make sure if we were ok with the assigned mooring on the southern edge of the field (we were).
Glad to hear you had a good stay. Thank you for the five stars.

Really enjoyed our second stay here. Really friendly staff and nice Ready rooms with showers.
Patty on the launch was super nice!
Now been back a third time and only enjoy the marina more!! Wonderful, friendly staff and friendly launch drivers!

Great Launch service, a courtesy shuttle to local places, convenient walking to a few nice restaurants and market. Also ferry to Newport operates from the same marina.
by mcsail52 on Aug 11, 2019
Great customer service, including launch drivers, Clean showers. Wonderful location.
So glad all was super, thank you for the five stars!
by dmartin155 on Aug 11, 2019
A nice stay, great weather. Can be a little bouncy at times, but calms down at night. Nice views. Marina personnel are courteous and helpful. Clean bathroom/showers.
Thanks so much!
by mberenberg on Aug 10, 2019
Great marina. Excellent service and helpful staff. Had a water pump failure while moored. Mechanic staff headed by Kevin was excellent
Thanks for the five stars!
by dstrippe on Aug 07, 2019
A planned short stay at CMS on our boat turned into a longer stay as it is when we overheated our motor on the way out into the sound on the way to Cuttyhunk. Of course we sailed back to CMS and grabbed a mooring. We received very timely assistance from Dan in diagnosing the root problem and then installing and tested replacement parts the next day. Great team at CMS to work with, both at the water front and at the shop up on Narragansett Ave.
Thanks very much ,
Dave Strippe and Janice Edler
What the Heck
Thank you Dave and Janice, so glad our team was able fix your motor and get you on your way! Thanks, too, for the kind words and five stars, the crew will certainly appreciate that.
by charles9871 on Aug 06, 2019
We're coming back! Great marina, wonderful people, Jamestown is a fun place! Brad, the launch coxswain, was a real pleasure. Thanks!
See you on the return trip! Thanks for the five stars.
by robrav on Aug 06, 2019
Fantastic service. Great facilities and location
Thank you for all five stars!
by razar516 on Aug 04, 2019
We needed to move moorings because a catamaran was swinging on its mooring to close to ours. The launch drivers were very good at helping us move to another mooring. Also, we enjoyed their courtesy shuttle to the grocery store. The service here is excellent. I highly recommend Conanicut Marine Services for mooring in the Newport/Jamestown area.
So glad to hear your worries were alleviated and you found great service. Thank you for the five stars, the team will appreciate the kudos.
by jacke on Aug 03, 2019
This Marina has an excellent, well spaced mooring field and an attentive launch service that runs until a 2245 return to mooring.
Excellent Jamestown restaurants and shops close by to the launch dock.
Much quicker than Newport yet there is a Jamestown to Newport Ferry available to access the Newport restaurants.
Can be a bit rolly in a stiff south wind.
Thank you for the four stars Jacke! We had a tremendous amount of boat traffic this weekend with the festival going on in Newport. We hope you will stay with us again and give it another go.
by toking on Aug 02, 2019
Very professionally run. Great amenities and location.
Thanks for the five stars! Come back and stay with us soon.
by rgurnitz on Aug 01, 2019
Great people. Great marina. Great services. Thank you
Great review. Thank you!
by rllalbin on Jul 30, 2019
Overall location was good, easy access to Jamestown & dining options, good views, prompt launch service. Only issue was the mooring was really roll-y, like, non-stop. There's no protection from all the Narragansett Bay traffic, and I was constantly being "waked". It only calmed down after dark.
Thank you for the four stars! We had an unusual amount of boats in the Bay this week with the Folk Festival, and the downside to that is the roll-y experience you had. We hope you will come back and stay with us again after the festival crowds have subsided.
by ryverhame on Jul 29, 2019
Great location near town and easy access to newport. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Clean facilities. Will definitely be back.
Thank you so much for the five stars! Come back and visit soon!
by vixen on Jul 28, 2019
We had a mooring, and the local power boat traffic made it very uncomfortable. Way too rolly polly.
The Folk Festival crowds certainly had an impact on the number of boats in the Bay this week, resulting in the rolly polly. Please come back and stay with us on a non-festival, less crowded weekend or weekday and give us a second chance to show you how great it is to stay in Jamestown.
by kk9vxqay98mrtzpdpyxs on Jul 28, 2019
Very convenient location, ferry over to Newport and when you want come back to no crowds you can
We appreciate the five stars!
by superwa on Jul 28, 2019
Great mooring field. Wakes can be intense for ferries and such. The confirmation email should include a map of the moorings. It was hard to figure out how the rows worked.
Thank you for the four stars and for the helpful suggestion. We now include a map of the mooring field in the confirmation emails!
by wardw on Jul 27, 2019
Friendly, accommodating and helpful staff. On demand shuttle to grocery store was amazing.

Second time around and it was as great as the first time ! Class act, they have their stuff together.... Very enjoyable !
Thank you so much for the five stars!
by dnelson50 on Jul 23, 2019
Excellent facility. Dockhands are knowledgeable and available on arrival and departure. Convenient to the small town of Jamestown. Accommodated us by extending our stay.
Thank you for the five stars dnelson50! It certainly means a lot to the entire team at Conanicut Marina that folks like you take the time to write in and tell us things were great. We look forward to seeing you again!
by catatonic on Jul 22, 2019
Conanicut runs an excellent operation. Clean, wide docks with 30 amp and 50 amp service, water, Dock hands always available to assist in docking/departure. Boat house with comfortable bathrooms each with 2 showers. Spinnakers cafe serves coffee in the am and ice cream in the pm and lots of burgers, wraps, etc. in between. On site liquor store too!
Thank you for the five stars! We are Spinnakers fans as well ;)
by chuckborge on Jul 17, 2019
We frequently visit Conanicut Marine Services for overnight stays. Super friendly launch operators and shoreside staff. Always quite accommodating. And the ships store nearby has a great selection of useful items including Yanmar parts if you need something in a pinch.
Thank you for the five stars chuckborge! So glad you had a great stay and found useful items in the store.
by rapiti on Jul 15, 2019

by prkirchner on Jul 10, 2019
We a wonderful stay. We thought that all the Conanicut staff was very accommodating and helpful for all our needs. and we really appreciated the complimentary launch and shuttle service. We wish more marinas were like Conanicut Marine.
Thank you for the five stars, glad to hear we earned the great review!
by emarcaccio on Jul 07, 2019
mooring field comfortable
good restaurants near marina and easy access by frequent ferry to Newport
by aahog on Jul 06, 2019
I am very satisfied and appreciate how the marina staff were all very accommodating. We asked for assistance docking and they were ready for us.
I will go there again.
by kevstab on Jul 05, 2019
Great service and facilities.
by tdenunzio on Jul 03, 2019
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Facilities were clean and nice. Restaurants are an easy walk. Much more relaxing feel than Newport.
Thank you for the 5 stars! We appreciate that. Happy July 4th holiday to you.
by rgreen on Jul 02, 2019
The marina went above and beyond to accommodate us when we arrived early. We had a great spot to watch the fireworks and plan on making this a yearly tradition plus stay many times during the season.
Great to hear, and we look forward to being part of your new "tradition!" Thanks for the five stars.
by jgrillo on Jun 30, 2019
Quiet spot. Dinner Simpatico downtown excellent
by vefthimiades on Jun 29, 2019
Great staff and clean facilities. Short shuttle ride to Newport.
Thank you for using our ferry service and thank you for the 5 stars. Glad to hear all was in good order.
by mantinozzi on Jun 28, 2019
However, their Internet WiFi is from the dark ages. Couldn’t connect on two devices, only one. Very, very, unnecessarily complicated even when it worked.
Thank you mantinozzi for the 5 stars! Although CMS has been an early pioneer in providing internet access to our marina guests, we indeed do recognize another upgrade is now overdue and we have it on our IT list. We thank you for the reminder and hope you will stay with us again.
by 12 on Jun 24, 2019
Great marina and staff. Jamestown is a great cruising destination
Thank you for the five stars! Hope you stay with us again.
by lordnelsom on May 30, 2019
Conanicut is a great place to visit. The marina is in very good shape, the bathrooms are clean (always on my checklist), the staff is helpful and friendly, and the location is superb. I much prefer the sleepier and more quaint Jamestown to the hustle and bustle of Newport, and yet it's only a short ferry ride away!
Thank you, we love a five-star review!
by sfred13 on Sep 25, 2018
It was great. The staff was super helpful and provided us an extra level of service getting us launched off the mooring with motor issues. It was greatly appreciated!
by g2d on Sep 16, 2018
Great Marina , have been there for years
Sadly the last launch in a bit early ( 8.45 pm) on boat show days to be able to enjoy restaurants after the show
Jay the launch operator made an exception and waited for until 9.15 pm which allowed us to finish our dinner and we really appreciated it
by gopsue on Sep 16, 2018
Great marina with Restaurants and a few shops all on the water. Take the water ferry across the bay to Newport RI for a fun day.
by seldert on Sep 11, 2018
Folks are very accomodating. Free launch. Right next to the town.
by johnpwood34 on Sep 07, 2018
Always a pleasure to pick up a mooing at Conanicut! Best launch service launch service in the bay!
by ggmerritt on Aug 29, 2018
we were not given code for showers whixh was main reason to dock. after hours we discovered the need but no way to get it! no contacts available. take notice and ask in advance.
by captainofjupiter on Aug 24, 2018
We have stayed at Conanicut many times and always have an excellent experience. The staff is very friendly and will go out of their way to make your stay seamless. Solid docks, great scenery, and great location.
by wkregan24 on Aug 18, 2018
Great, love the water taxi to newport
by vickij on Aug 16, 2018
The mooring location was great. The staff was professional and courteous and the town is charming. Tip to fellow sailors, try to get an inside mooring to avoid chop from the bay.
by jamessalkind on Aug 14, 2018
The marina staff and services are very good. The only complaint is that because of the location of the mooring field, vessels are subject to a confluence of wind, tide, and passing boats. It can make for a bumpy night, depending on the weather. But otherwise the facilities are nice; clean bathrooms, convenient launch service, and proximity to town in particular. We would definitely stay again.
by tayloreml on Aug 09, 2018
excellent facility, staff, and services. clean rest rooms, shuttle service, and friendly staff. it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. highly recommend it
by bobhaze101 on Aug 08, 2018
Welcoming, professional staff, good quality floating docks, clean modern heads & showers. On-site ferry to Newport is fun. Will definitely be back.
by jeffirvine on Aug 06, 2018
This was a perfect location to view all the boat activity on the Bay. Staying away from the massive crowds in Newport Harbor was exact what we needed. The staff and launch service were great.
by ddonald0318 on Aug 04, 2018
Great Stay. Quiet. Close to nice restaurants.
by sholland18 on Jul 30, 2018
Facilities and employees were tremendous. Moorings are quite exposed to the conditions of Narragansett Bay.
by ztyktiyusxecesyu4m9d on Jul 13, 2018
Have stayed here before & it’s a convenient alternative to Newport. Good mooring field, launch service, bathrooms & central location. We had to move our mooring due to strong Nirthrrly winds which pushed us onto a channel marker so avoid mooring E1 unless wind is from SW.
by movinalong on Jul 09, 2018
Easy in-easy out, as long as winds not blowing too strong (no bow thruster). Smaller marina right i the middle of a really cute (and small) village. several places to eat and only a short ferry ride (or uber) to Newport. docks in good shape, bath facilities were neat, clean and newer. no gas dock this year ('18) not sure about pump out. we'd go again. rarely, if ever, give 5-stars...there's always something...
by captgary175 on Jul 08, 2018
The marina, services and people are great! Convenient location to Newport with a ferry leaving right from the marina every half hour or so. The mooring field is somewhat exposed, especially in a northerly. This can make for a rolling, bouncy, uncomfortable night.
by mpike on Jul 05, 2018
Conanicut Marine was fantastic! Everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful, the facilities were clean (honestly, they had the nicest showers I've seen while cruising), and the location is perfect. It's a super quick walk to the Jamestown restaurants, the Jamestown/Newport ferry leaves right from their dock, and the view of the Jamestown Bridge and Rose Island Light is awesome. And the icing on the cake - they'll drive you to the grocery store to provision! The store is within walking distance, but it's so much easier to not have to lug all those bags back to the boat. We liked it so much, we decided to stay three nights instead of the one we initially booked. We'll definitely be back!
by lstcoeur on Jul 02, 2018
As always a great experience. Staff always friendly and helpful. Premises are very well kept. Thanks for a wonderful firework celebration.

by walkerk on Jun 18, 2018
We kept our Eastern 18 here for the Volvo Ocean Race in May. Can't say enough about the folks who run this marina, and the facilities - both made for a memorable stay. Thanks!
by lindawitham on Jun 17, 2018
Excellent location. Wonderful launch service with friendly and helpful staff. We will definite visit here again
by rafredrickson on Jun 17, 2018
Staff and service top notch - a bit bumpy with the small rollers that enter the mooring field till evening when the traffic sdlows down.
by wcrosby on Jun 04, 2018
This is a great little marina in a nice town. The staff is wonderful, the launch complimentary, and the town is wonderful!

by mbkuck on Sep 13, 2017
Marina and docks are nice, avoid staying by the ferry lane, made for a bumpy day, outside transient is not well protected. Stayed inside last year and was much happier. A bit pricey.
by pkessinger on Sep 09, 2017
Always a great stay. Plenty of help even after Labor Day. Ferry makes craziness of Newport dockage unnesessary.
by ab on Aug 30, 2017
The staff were all great.
Showers were very clean.
The wifi did not work.
by andersenjp on Aug 30, 2017
I loved the location and Jamestown itself. The marina staff were awesome. The marina itself and and facilities were great as well. But a show stopper for us was the constant un-baffled wake activity that flowed through the marina. Boat after boat would go by and cast a wake that would travel through the marina, sometimes violently knocking the boat all over the place.
Nights after 8PM were fine. But then the next morning, it would start up all over again.
If the marina could figure out how to baffle all those wakes so that the marina is calm, then the marina would be a 5 star and I would be the first to come back. But until then, I will be staying away.
by oceanus76 on Aug 27, 2017
Great mooring location and a courteous staff.
by kdmacneil on Aug 26, 2017
Have stayed here a few times. Always great. Launch drivers and dock staff unfailing courteous and sharp. Far enough away from but easy access to all things Newport. Great stay with quick ride out to see the J Class Worlds.

by billyliberty on Aug 12, 2017
Conanicut and their staff is always outstanding, a nice way to overnight downtown Jamestown, wonderful dinner at Fish restaurant and cocktails aboard the boat thru the evening. Our underwater lights created an instant aquarium with all the fish swimming around their docks, unbelievable.
by jdrinane on Aug 07, 2017
Great service, superb launch drivers, especially during last week's gale that I failed to mention after my earlier stay there
by finsup03 on Aug 06, 2017
Enjoyed our stay at Conanicut Marina. The launch service is outstanding. All the launch operators are personable and responsive. The mooring location was very convenient. The location to town and all the shops and restaurants is top shelf. The stop and go dock is accessible and easy to tie up to. The guys at the gas dock were great to work with, too. The whole area is pet friendly.
All things considered, it was a very positive experience all week.
by capnsaltine on Aug 01, 2017
Always great here at Conanicut.
by bnathan2017 on Jul 26, 2017
I'm not sure how they do it, maybe it's free coffee, maybe it's a daily pep talk, I don't know how they do it but the morale of the staff is second to none. Whenever I drop in to use the launch, or drop off a car load of gear before a trip the staff always makes an unsolicited offer to help me in some way that is above my expectations. An offer of an extra hand to help is followed up with the help, not a long pause, it's like you're family to them, they just want you to have the best day possible and if they see a way to help they'll just do it.
by sharoncstuc on Jul 25, 2017
Navigation to the Marina was easy. Docks were good except some lights were out. Dock hands were good. Office staff lacked personality. Facilities were nice and clean.
by margozink on Jul 16, 2017
We were initially assigned a mooring without a float which made it impossible to retrieve the mooring lines. The launch came out to assist but were unable to help us retrieve lines effectively, but did recover our lost docking pole. Upon our request, we were assigned another mooring with floats and able to pick up lines without problem. Launch service is very good. No way to call marina staff directly on the telephone.
by mgerhardt on Jul 10, 2017
As always very professional in every regard. And today when I needed my boat pumped out (and their pump out boat was in Newport0 the staff lent a hand at the Town pump out station. We always enjoy our stay at this marina.
by rcmackenzie on Jul 08, 2017
