It was great. The staff was super helpful and provided us an extra level of service getting us launched off the mooring with motor issues. It was greatly appreciated!

Great Marina , have been there for years Sadly the last launch in a bit early ( 8.45 pm) on boat show days to be able to enjoy restaurants after the show Jay the launch operator made an exception and waited for until 9.15 pm which allowed us to finish our dinner and we really appreciated it

The mooring location was great. The staff was professional and courteous and the town is charming. Tip to fellow sailors, try to get an inside mooring to avoid chop from the bay.

The marina staff and services are very good. The only complaint is that because of the location of the mooring field, vessels are subject to a confluence of wind, tide, and passing boats. It can make for a bumpy night, depending on the weather. But otherwise the facilities are nice; clean bathrooms, convenient launch service, and proximity to town in particular. We would definitely stay again.

Have stayed here before & it’s a convenient alternative to Newport. Good mooring field, launch service, bathrooms & central location. We had to move our mooring due to strong Nirthrrly winds which pushed us onto a channel marker so avoid mooring E1 unless wind is from SW.

Easy in-easy out, as long as winds not blowing too strong (no bow thruster). Smaller marina right i the middle of a really cute (and small) village. several places to eat and only a short ferry ride (or uber) to Newport. docks in good shape, bath facilities were neat, clean and newer. no gas dock this year ('18) not sure about pump out. we'd go again. rarely, if ever, give 5-stars...there's always something...

The marina, services and people are great! Convenient location to Newport with a ferry leaving right from the marina every half hour or so. The mooring field is somewhat exposed, especially in a northerly. This can make for a rolling, bouncy, uncomfortable night.

Conanicut Marine was fantastic! Everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful, the facilities were clean (honestly, they had the nicest showers I've seen while cruising), and the location is perfect. It's a super quick walk to the Jamestown restaurants, the Jamestown/Newport ferry leaves right from their dock, and the view of the Jamestown Bridge and Rose Island Light is awesome. And the icing on the cake - they'll drive you to the grocery store to provision! The store is within walking distance, but it's so much easier to not have to lug all those bags back to the boat. We liked it so much, we decided to stay three nights instead of the one we initially booked. We'll definitely be back!

The marina went above and beyond to accommodate us. We even asked to be upgraded to a dock slip instead of our original mooring reservation and they helped us right away. We had a great spot to watch the fireworks and plan on making this a yearly tradition.

I loved the location and Jamestown itself. The marina staff were awesome. The marina itself and and facilities were great as well. But a show stopper for us was the constant un-baffled wake activity that flowed through the marina. Boat after boat would go by and cast a wake that would travel through the marina, sometimes violently knocking the boat all over the place. Nights after 8PM were fine. But then the next morning, it would start up all over again. If the marina could figure out how to baffle all those wakes so that the marina is calm, then the marina would be a 5 star and I would be the first to come back. But until then, I will be staying away.

Enjoyed our stay at Conanicut Marina. The launch service is outstanding. All the launch operators are personable and responsive. The mooring location was very convenient. The location to town and all the shops and restaurants is top shelf. The stop and go dock is accessible and easy to tie up to. The guys at the gas dock were great to work with, too. The whole area is pet friendly. All things considered, it was a very positive experience all week.

I'm not sure how they do it, maybe it's free coffee, maybe it's a daily pep talk, I don't know how they do it but the morale of the staff is second to none. Whenever I drop in to use the launch, or drop off a car load of gear before a trip the staff always makes an unsolicited offer to help me in some way that is above my expectations. An offer of an extra hand to help is followed up with the help, not a long pause, it's like you're family to them, they just want you to have the best day possible and if they see a way to help they'll just do it.

We were initially assigned a mooring without a float which made it impossible to retrieve the mooring lines. The launch came out to assist but were unable to help us retrieve lines effectively, but did recover our lost docking pole. Upon our request, we were assigned another mooring with floats and able to pick up lines without problem. Launch service is very good. No way to call marina staff directly on the telephone.
