About


Welcome to Goat Island, an island oasis in the heart of Newport Harbor. Goat Island has a long history which includes home to a military fort during the American Revolution, torpedo manufacturing for the US Navy, and more recently serving as host to the Tall Ships Festival and world-class sailing regattas.

Goat Island Marina offers a quiet, relaxing atmosphere in the "City by the Sea," only minutes away from downtown Newport. Enjoy breathtaking harbor views while relaxing at your slip, or take a quick shuttle ride into town to experience Newport's revered shopping and exciting nightlife.

Goat Island Marina is a deep-water facility that is located on the west side of Newport Harbor. There are fixed and floating slips available that can accommodate just about any size vessel. The fuel dock is easily accessible and is monitored by our friendly dock staff.

Prompt response and clear instructions to our slip over VHF. Dockhands were extremely helpful getting us in and out in 30kt winds. Great little bar by D dock and 15 minute walk to downtown. See you next year!

Nice easy docking. Nice crew, helped me with the lines. Fuel was priced at 3.99, a little high I might say and they change for ice. Nice quiet Marina

Ideal location to experience Newport. Walking distance from downtown restaurants and shops, yet a quiet oasis back on the boat. Very protected slips made for great night sleep and relaxing time onboard. We will definitely be back!

We were hoping to have a restaurant nearby but nothing local. Had to pay $24 to go across the harbor to find a restaurant.

Marina Response:
Hi there! Thank you for the review. The Goat Island Marina does not have a restaurant! But there is the Marina Pub and Grill on the island or the restaurants at Gurney's hotel also on Goat Island. Yes, the water taxi's do take guests over to the Newport Harbor landing where there are literally 100's of restaurants to choose from. We are sorry that you had to take the water taxi to find a restaurant! We really appreciate the 4 stars rating and that you were able to stay with us! We also hope to see you back to try the Marina Pub and Grill or the restaurants at the hotel at the north end of this island! Sincerely, the staff at the Goat Island Marina

Goat Island Marina is a wonderful spot. Sparkling clean with extraordinary and friendly staff. Michael, Martha and Tucker are super accommodating and William and Emma on the docks very helpful. My NEWPORT Marina of choice for dock space, and I’m a local with a mooring in the main harbor.

We were docked next to what looked like an abandoned and mold-ridden boat in G93, blocking most of view of Newport Harbor. The docks were unstable and in poor condition. Matt went to get us a potable water hose after we tipped him for helping us dock, and he never returned!
