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
Great marina with Restaurants and a few shops all on the water. Take the water ferry across the bay to Newport RI for a fun day.
Folks are very accomodating. Free launch. Right next to the town.
Always a pleasure to pick up a mooing at Conanicut! Best launch service launch service in the bay!
I am very satisfied and appreciate how the marina staff were all very accommodating. We asked for assistance docking and they were ready for us. I will go there again.
we were not given code for showers whixh was main reason to dock. after hours we discovered the need but no way to get it! no contacts available. take notice and ask in advance.
We have stayed at Conanicut many times and always have an excellent experience. The staff is very friendly and will go out of their way to make your stay seamless. Solid docks, great scenery, and great location.
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.
excellent facility, staff, and services. clean rest rooms, shuttle service, and friendly staff. it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. highly recommend it
Welcoming, professional staff, good quality floating docks, clean modern heads & showers. On-site ferry to Newport is fun. Will definitely be back.
This was a perfect location to view all the boat activity on the Bay. Staying away from the massive crowds in Newport Harbor was exact what we needed. The staff and launch service were great.
First time staying here, and we'll be back! Cool little village, great restauruants, wonderful marina. Love the names of the launch's !!!
Great Stay. Quiet. Close to nice restaurants.
Fantastic service. Great facilities and location
Facilities and employees were tremendous. Moorings are quite exposed to the conditions of Narragansett Bay.
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.
we enjoyed our stay. Had a north wind the Friday night before our departure and dragged our mooring a bit, but all in all things were great.
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.
As always a great experience. Staff always friendly and helpful. Premises are very well kept. Thanks for a wonderful firework celebration.
mooring field comfortable good restaurants near marina and easy access by frequent ferry to Newport
Good Location, Friendly staff, lower rating due to abundance of boat wake.
We kept our Eastern 18 here for the Volvo Ocean Race in May. Can't say enough about the folks who run this marina, and the facilities - both made for a memorable stay. Thanks!
Excellent location. Wonderful launch service with friendly and helpful staff. We will definite visit here again
Staff and service top notch - a bit bumpy with the small rollers that enter the mooring field till evening when the traffic sdlows down.
This is a great little marina in a nice town. The staff is wonderful, the launch complimentary, and the town is wonderful!
Great quick stay to get out of the seas. Too rough for the Block run. Jack was great! Quiet, with great views!
Great spot Competitive pricing Friendly Staff
Great staff and perfect location. Always a good experience at Conanicut Marina
Marina and docks are nice, avoid staying by the ferry lane, made for a bumpy day, outside transient is not well protected. Stayed inside last year and was much happier. A bit pricey.
Always a great stay. Plenty of help even after Labor Day. Ferry makes craziness of Newport dockage unnesessary.
The staff were all great. Showers were very clean. The wifi did not work.
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.
Great mooring location and a courteous staff.
Have stayed here a few times. Always great. Launch drivers and dock staff unfailing courteous and sharp. Far enough away from but easy access to all things Newport. Great stay with quick ride out to see the J Class Worlds.
Very nice facility. Well run with friendly staff and clean heads.
Conanicut and their staff is always outstanding, a nice way to overnight downtown Jamestown, wonderful dinner at Fish restaurant and cocktails aboard the boat thru the evening. Our underwater lights created an instant aquarium with all the fish swimming around their docks, unbelievable.
Conanicut runs an excellent operation. Clean, wide docks with 30 amp and 50 amp service, water, Dock hands always available to assist in docking/departure. Boat house with comfortable bathrooms each with 2 showers. Spinnakers cafe serves coffee in the am and ice cream in the pm and lots of burgers, wraps, etc. in between. On site liquor store too!
Great service, superb launch drivers, especially during last week's gale that I failed to mention after my earlier stay there
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.
Always professional, from when they great you to when you leave. Excellent docks, moorings, and facilities. We always enjoy our stays at Conanicut.
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.
Navigation to the Marina was easy. Docks were good except some lights were out. Dock hands were good. Office staff lacked personality. Facilities were nice and clean.
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.
As always very professional in every regard. And today when I needed my boat pumped out (and their pump out boat was in Newport0 the staff lent a hand at the Town pump out station. We always enjoy our stay at this marina.
Always a great experience, Had a mooring, E9< North hear the yacht club, which was nice and quiet. Rollers not bad at all this trip.
Very friendly, helpful and quaint atmosphere. Great location. Good amenities.
Great service and staff. Wonderful location.
