The Sail Newport docks are located on the southwest side of Newport Harbor in Fort Adams State Park. While enjoying one of the best views of the Newport Bridge and Sailing Capital of the World, guests of the Sail Newport docks will be steps away from historic Fort Adams, home to the legendary Newport Folk Festival, Jazz Festival, and Volvo Ocean Race stopover. A dinghy ride across the harbor takes you to downtown Newport, or take one of the convenient water taxis.

Sail Newport maintains and manages events for all of the piers except the east side "T" pier, which is reserved for intermodal transport and select commercial vessel pick-up and drop-off services. All touches on the pier must be prearranged with Sail Newport and there is a fee for use.

Nick Mauprivez is the best! Super helpful. The docks were the perfect space we needed for the Ida Lewis Distance Race

U don’t suggest this boating company because it is cheap and does not have good service I feel as if they could also have politer employees

Not a good sailing experience, boats were cheap brands and the staff on the boat were rude and made inappropriate jokes around my children
