Help with dockage in Newport

I am planning an 11 day cruise from Mt. Sinai harbor in Long Island, NY out to Block Island for a few days. From Block I was planning on heading North east to Newport but have never been there before by land or by boat. I was hoping some of you could offer some suggestions of some good marinas with easy access to the town? I would prefer to dock but if its packed are there any anchorages or mooring fields?

For the dock the boat is a 32' with an 11'6 beam, 4ft draft.

Thanks in advance

Dockage will run you about $5 a foot in most marinas in season. Here's another marina. Suggest you think about a mooring if that is too pricey for you. Bowen's Wharf and Newport Mooring Services can provide moorings and launches.

thanks for the suggestions so far. $5 a foot is a little pricey so I think I may try and investigate mooring options.

When I go to New port I Just use the anchorage and dinghy to the town dock. The harbor has a pump out boat and a floating dock for fresh water. All free except the pump out boat, $5.

Where do you usually anchor? Is there a specific spot that is easy to spot with a bunch of other boats anchored or are the a couple of choices? Also where on the LI sound are you?

Nk,

We anchor in Brenton Cove area, south of Goat Island. When you come up into New Port and just clear Fort Adams turn east and into the harbor area. When you are past Fort Adams off to starboard you will see boats at moorings and an anchorage area.

If you don't have Maptech's embassy guide for the area I strongly suggest you buy one. Very helpful and packed with information such as anchorages. The one I use covers from Block Island to the Canadian border.

Milford Harbor. What's your first name, Calling you Nk seams strange.

Nk,

When are you taking this trip? If it's next week end may be we can meet up. I'm heading east on Satureday, might make it to Mystic.

Dennis and Cam - My name is Nick and thanks for the advice and directions. I saw on both chart 13223 and google earth exactly where you guys are talking about.

I have the Maptech embassy guide for LI Sound to Cape May but I don't have the New England one which includes Newport as I rarely get the chance to head as far east as Newport (actually this will be the first time).

Milford harbor is a great place. I'v brought my boat there twice this year going to Milford landing both times. I may actually stay a night there on the way back from this little cruise I am doing. So far I plan on leaving Friday night, Aug 22nd and staying overnight in Mattituck inlet. Waking up 5am next morning to catch the ebb through the race and over to Block where I will stay till around Tuesday (depends on weather) before I sail over to Newport. I have never been to Newport and I hear it is great so I at least want to spend two days there but once I am done I was going to work my way back west along the CT coast possibly stopping in Mystic, CT River, Branford...all depends on the weather and if I have to try and make a long haul back to Mt. Sinai harbor or not. All in all I should have 11 days Fri night the 22nd to labor day sept 1. Right now I can't wait for this week to pass so I can go!

Anyway thanks for the help and info again. I really appreciate it.
