Our stay at Bowen's Wharf Marina was fantastic! Great facility in a wonderful location in the hub of Newport. Topher, the dockmaster, was very helpful in getting us into our spot. He was accommodating and pleasant. We can't wait to return. Joe and Sally, Cloud Nine.

Topher and his crew were fantastic, great customer service, they know how to assist when tying up and they are on the premises till 8 every night. Docks are in great shape a little tight when the tour boats come in and out but otherwise fantastic! Will be back! Tour boat captains btw are professionals with boat handling skills, cudos

This is an excellent marina with great service and very competent employees. I would have given them 5 stars were it not for the noise from the band next door at "The Landing". They often played until 11:00 pm.

Dock a master Topher was great!! Giving 4 stars because internet was terrible - it is the year 2021 - let’s get our act together!!!

Marina Response:
Sam I appreciate you letting us know. Cox, our internet provider, was having a scheduled outage working on their systems. We have a brand new WiFi system that provides strong signal for the whole dock, as long as it has signal from our internet provider. Hope you come back to see us. Topher and the crew.

Great place! Haven't handled a boat in a decade and wanting to go somewhere with the family for our anniversary on our new to us boat we chose Bowens for being located right with everything and knowing they have excellent dock hands (stayed over a decade ago). We docked around multi million dollar yachts with great support from the crew. They took great care of us in and out of the marina and I was VERY happy with that. Only downfall would be the wifi was poor at best and so was the cell service, hopefully they improve the wifi a bit. The kids would have loved to be able to watch YouTube. Thanks everyone and I will be back, hopefully with a little more time behind the helm.

Marina Response:
Hey Kyle. Thanks so much for staying with us and letting us know how we did. I know it doesn't help you but we just got our WiFi fixed today so I hope you'll come back again some time. Thanks, Topher.

Great place to stay in Newport! Centrally located with many restaurants just off the dock to choose from! Topher and Molly were awesome to assist with docking and setting us up with power and water and anything else we needed. The only “ding” I would give was their guest internet repeater has been down and we had to rely on cell service which is weak. Overall, we will definitely return to Bowen’s Wharf!

Marina Response:
Hey Henry, thanks for staying with us! We enjoyed having you guys. I know it doesn't help you with this reservation but we just got our WiFi fixed. We hope you stay with us again. Have fun in Mystic. Thanks, Topher and the team.

Absolutely in the center of the action. Marina staff very friendly and helpful. Very small. Lots of day trip boats in and out on weekends . (We were moored next to two cruise boats.). A little loud - lots of neighboring bars. Positives outweigh these negatives. Strong recommend.

Traveling from Brick NJ to New Port last Labor Day weekend , aboard the “Light Hearted” a 65’ Galeon Fly , we were lucky to secure a slip at Bowen’s Wharf. From the Dockwa reservation process to our arrival things couldn’t have been better. The dock crew at our arrival couldn’t be more accommodating, allowing us to nose in instead of traditional backing in allowing us a spectacular view of Newport Harbor. Originally booked for only 2 days , we immediately wanted to extend our visit but, Due to the holiday all slips were reserved and we politely told it would be close to impossible, but they would try to accommodate us. The talented staff at Bowen’s Wharf somehow did the impossible and found us a spot for 2 additional days. I can’t say enough good things about this perfectly located Marina. Close to restaurants stores and all the action New Port is know for. We’ll definitely be visiting again. Dan Balsamo & Marc Kushner

We had the best stay of our summer the week of Oct 4th at Bowen's Wharf Marina. The staff was extremely helpful with reservation confirmation calls, wait list status, early check in, and arrival help. We had the best spot in all of Newport and are looking forward to a return next season! Well done Bowen's Wharf for hiring the perfect marina staff!

Kerrie was awesome...everything from planning our club's trip to helping me with the lines. Facilities were great, location outstanding, power and water solid. Only feedback is the dockhand helping the Tiara behind me dock misjudged the space required and I lost my stern flag and had my teak scratch...nothing I can't fix and I know the hand was only trying to help a customer that really wanted to get into that spot early. So A for customer focus and room to improve with math.
