Great people to deal with and great mooring locations. Can't wait for winter to end so we can get back there.

Great people. Very accommodating with some last minute date changes, ran the launch off schedule for us to get us to the boat earlier than expected. Can’t say enough good things. We will be back.

Always a great experience with all the staff and tender operators. One suggestion: the moorings are getting pretty dirty and it's hard to see the numbers. Need a good cleaning half way through the season. Can't wait for next season.

Pleasant stay on mooring. Conveniently located near downtown and dinghy dock at Maritime Center.

thoughtful assistance when we needed to stay an extra day due to rain and fog

It was easy dealing with Oldport Marine. The dispatcher was quick to respond to my arrival radio call and the launch driver was helpful to stretch out the mooring ball chain. Good experience! I'll be back.

Excellent customer service. We really appreciated their flexibility on dates. No hassle. For us, Dockwa is a great addition for OldPort.

Great location and reasonable priced mooring. Water taxi is frequent with $4 pp delivers you right into the busy wharf scene packed with great restaurant choices and shops

by Eugene W. - Verified user on Sep 06, 2023
It was great to go to Newport without the anxiety of getting a mooring. Will go more often now.

Great instructions to find the mooring

by Kurt S. - Verified user on Sep 06, 2023
Good Location, good info on how to find the mooring. Limited shore facilities and the $5 pp one way shuttle charge every time seemed pretty steep, even for Newport!

by Glenn S. - Verified user on Sep 06, 2023
Great location and the floating mooring docks were a great surprise.

by Ernie W. - Verified user on Sep 05, 2023
We've used Oldport for mooring stays for several years now. They recognize us and would accommodate us as best they could with their first come/first serve policy. With Dockwa, we can now make reservations...this is GREAT and this past weeks visit was terrific. We've already made future plans and will in the coming seasons.! UPDATE: another wonderful Labor Day Wkend with Oldport! Thanks again!!!

Using Dockwa for Old port mooring was perfect! Knowing you have a mooring on arrival! The launch drive was excellent put us on a mooring dock with our friends boat! We will be using Dockwa more often!! Boat DonnaJean
