We loved our stay in Newport on a mooring at Oldport Marine services. Launch service was great, very Quick to respond and we never waited long at the dock when returning to our boat. Bannisters Wharf is right there, very dog friendly, easy access to restaurants and shopping. Will definitely return!

Newport is a great spot. Old Port Launch operators are very good. They were very accommodating to extend our stay in the rain/fog continuum last week!

Nice location. They were very accommodating when I needed to stay an extra night. Don’t price gouge with the launch services like some places do. Overall a good rating. We’ve stayed with them three years running

Excellent customer service. No hassle. For us, Dockwa is a great addition for OldPort. Rather than the launch drivers still trying to juggle so many different things at once, the Dockwa system is very user friendly to boaters for mooring assignment. Kudos to OldPort for making the change from frenetic fist-come, first-served approach. Thanks,

The moorings are close to town and there are dinghy docks not far away where you can leave your dinghy when ashore.

Easy to reserve, quick response. They guided us to mooring, that was nice.

Dockmaster was very helpful and put me up on the floating water dock, just a minute dinghy ride to Bannister's Wharf. Will stay with these guys again.

Great, helpful staff. Love staying at Oldport.

by Peter D. - Verified user on Jun 30, 2024
Very helpful and friendly. Due to weather conditions we arrived a day earlier and left a day earlier. The staff made it easy and seamless.

by Michel F. - Verified user on Jun 29, 2024
Their moorings are in a great location between the dinghy docks at the Newport Maritime Center and Perotti Park. If you don't want to use your dinghy their launch dock is between Bannister's Wharf and The Moorings restaurant so your always just minutes away from the heart of Newport. Best of all is you can reserve in advance now that they're on Dockwa!!

by Morgan K. - Verified user on Jun 27, 2024
Nice moorings, but expensive since there is no amenities such as showers or restrooms included

by Paul R. - Verified user on Jun 20, 2024
Pure Relaxation!!!! Totally enjoyed our stay. Customer Service was Excellent!!! Can’t wait to come back.
