Due to the current COVID-19 guidelines, boater facility (this includes bathrooms, showers, and laundry) will be closed until further notice.
Newburyport Municipal Marina offers 500’ of linear dockage for boaters looking to spend time in the heart of Newburyport. Located in the heart of downtown Newburyport, you will only be a short walk from the town’s best shopping and dining. Newburyport is known as one of New England's best walking towns. You can enjoy waterfront views while you enjoy some of the best dining our lovely town has to offer.
Excellent service and excellent location in the middle of town
The staff at the Newburyport Harbor Masters office are top notch. Its always a pleasure staying there.
Anyone considering a visit to downtown NBPT by boat will not be disappointed. Easy access to a beautifully historic downtown, great restaurants and shops. The City has a great boater/visitors center with clean facilities - one of the better public boating facilities in the Northeast. On this stay, the DockWoman Olivia was simply the Best!
Great service and follow up, very professional , incredible customer service
Location is great as you are in the heart of NBRPRT. Walking path along the coast will lead you to shops, dining, entertainment. Along the waterfront there is access to restrooms. Showers are listed, but I didn't look for them. If needed there is docking assist but call ahead if needed to ensure someone is waiting. If docking near the corner / inlet for the dinghy's / smaller boats, expect some drifters to come your way when the current is flowing in that direction.
We reserved a mooring, and it turns out the harbormaster has only 2 moorings, right off the town dock. The moorings were fine, but the current in the river is something to consider and deal with. the harbormaster staff were great and helpful, but whole trees and other debris comes down the river and we had a couple of solid "thunks" against the hull during the night. Newburyport itself is great and we'll likely be back, but I think we'll take some dock space next time instead of a mooring.
We didn't use VHF to announce we were arriving and ask where to park (sun was in our eyes and current was running fast), but someone greeted us and helped tie up, answered a few questions... We had a pleasant stay and noise, even for a Sat. night that was warm, was very low. Thanks!
Friendly Dock master, great location , easy in and Out . Would’ve been five star if the “ Captains Lady 111 Didn’t fire up the 3 Diesel engines at 7 am for an 8:30 Whale Watch
Great location - Olivia was a great help with docking and local knowledge!
Great Dock hands especially Olivia who was always asking if we needed anything like Ice.
Another great Stay in a beautiful waterfront town. Mary and the dock staff were very helpful. We are on a catamaran and they were able to put us on a perfectly sized mooring. Facilities were spotless and laundry was a bonus. Will be back again next year.
Super place. Located steps from town, friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely recommend this place. Plan to come back again!
A mooring is a mooring is a mooring but Elizabeth is a pro and I appreciate how she went out of her way to make the stay go smoothly. I look forward to a return visit as I make my way back south
The dock hands were there when we arrive and the staff was always helpful. Everything was clean. The only negative I would say is there was no wifi. The harbormaster's office was very helpful and accommodating when I increased our stay. Newburyport is very fun, lots of restaurants, walking areas and live music. Also lots of parking for guests to come.
Great except for power. Good location things to do
Deckhands - Olivia and her colleague - were simply great assistiting us . Easy access to restaurants and shops and parking nearby. Bathroom facility spotless. There is no marina WiFi but all the rest was great. We will be back again. Liann & GP
Fantastic. Wonderful young woman greeted us and was a big help.
Great docks.....in Town....friendly staff!
Facilities impeccable and staff one of the friendliest we have encountered.
Very easy to tie up and great helpful staff
Always an amazing stay here. Very accommodating with friendly staff. Docks are great. Not quite 240v power if you need it. We saw only 220v. Having a 60’ vessel, rarely seen in Newburyport, we were definitely in the spotlight to all the passerbys.
The staff here is very helpful and the facilities are clean. The town is a short walk.
Fantastic! Great facilities, and staff. Downtown is beautiful!
As mentioned in other reviews, the location of this marina is outstanding. It also looks like the restroom facilities are new. They are only open between 7a-7p so we were not able to use them. Also, we had an issue contacting the dockmaster on the radio for docking instructions. The range on her handheld radio is not very far. They put us at the very end of the linear dock and we found out that the current sucks your boat into the small cove at the end of the dock. We adjusted our approach to account for this and had no problems.
Stout mooring easily identifiable and located just off busy town dock. Facilities on shore at the Harbor Master office- showers and laundry- are very nice and clean. Quick access to town and many restaurants and shops from the nearby dinghy dock. Very busy waterway with commercial tour boats and private recreation boats.
Excellent support from the dock masters and clean baths/showers!!
Helpful dock staff. Great location for exploring downtown Newburyport. Marina restrooms are open but need passcode.
Great spot in the heart of beautiful downtown Newburyport. The dock person who checked us in was friendly and helpful. She was there to take our lines and check us in upon arrival. You should be comfortable being sociable with passers-by as many will stop and chat about your boat. This is part of the fun of being there! Easy walking distance to many great restaurants and shops.
Friendly Staff. Close to town. Good facilities.
Nice folks at the Municipal Docks. We had the dock to ourselves.
Well run municipal dock. Good communication. Very friendly staff. You cannot beat the location.
It was awesome. Very convenient . A beautiful place to visit . Very safe and convenient.
Harbor master very helpful. Excellent dock and facilities. Call early for pump out boat, it gets busy.
Great location right down town and plenty of room to swing with the current.
Very friendly and helpful in guiding us to the mooring we reserved. They even called us on VHF to let us know we were approaching the wrong buoy.
Always great. Great people and the ones running the docks are so accommodating
The young lady managing the dock the days we stayed was pleasant and helpful.
Great location and the dock well-maintained with the power. Great town with lots to do
Docks are new, everything works, staff is helpful, easy walk downtown.
Actually we had planned for 6 nights, and ended up adding two more nights to enjoy the area and the comfort of air conditioning during a hot spell. All dock staff so helpful and friendly. Elizabeth helped us out when our son drove to visit from VT and needed safe parking. We stayed here several nights July 2018 with a flotilla of sister PDQs and were delighted to have an opportunity to return.
Very friendly receptionist. Great town.
beautiful port! Docks and staff are exceptionally professional and always available to answer any questions. I will definitely be back :)
Beautiful place, the absolute best staff in the business, great location.
Great location, super clean (and I mean super clean) bathrooms and showers. Free pumpout, free laundry, water and electric included, and awesome staff. I hate to recommend it because they have limited space and want to make sure I get a spot next time I go! Staff was friendly, attentive, and very knowledgeable about navigating in and out as the Merrimack river is very challenging. The only downside is that there is no locked gate between the dock and shore, but there is a lot of activity which basically polices the place. Lots of things to walk to and do; steps away from the park and great restaurants.
Clean, well run. Great town.
Great dockhands! Great spot! Loved it!
The dock hands are awesome...Beautiful area lots of shopping and restaurants!!
