Used a city mooring for 3 consecutive nights to wait out a passing storm. The mooring fields are well maintained are in a location with quick access to downtown. The Launch Masters are very polite and attentive, even though that service the entire harbor with a single launch. Dockwa makes the whole reservation/payment process a breeze.
It was our first time staying at the Wentworth Marina and we were not at all disappointed with the marina, Truly a first class, well maintain marina with great security, friendly staff, even provide 2 loner cars in case you need to run to town and the Dock hand Lucy was great at our arrival. Boaters beware, if you are planning on going into Portsmouth for the day or evening be prepared for long waits for cabs in either direction. The local story is that Uber and Lyft destroyed the local Portsmouth cab companies and then the Uber/Lyft drivers dried up. We waited for over an hour each time to catch cabs for downtown runs, a destination that is only about 3 miles away. If you have a OB dinghy I suggest you bring it and run yourself downtown to Prescott Park and tie up there.
Anyone considering a visit to downtown NBPT by boat will not be disappointed. Easy access to a beautifully historic downtown, great restaurants and shops. The City has a great boater/visitors center with clean facilities - one of the better public boating facilities in the Northeast. On this stay, the DockWoman Olivia was simply the Best!
