Tips for Boaters at Bowen’s Wharf Marina

The term “conveniently located” takes on a whole new meaning when referring Bowen’s Wharf Marina. The wharf itself is the home to the best shopping, restaurants, galleries and harbor tours that Newport has to offer, and the marina is in the heart of it all! Come discover for yourself this hub of excitement on the famed Newport waterfront.

Bowen’s Wharf Marina has two shops within just a few feet, Ship's Store and Rigging, for equipment and gear, and Bowen's Wharf Pilot House, for all of the apparel and supplies you may need. The marina provides its guests with a range of fantastic amenities that will make your stay as pleasurable as possible, including laundry and mail services, free Wi-Fi and cable TV hookups and 24-hour security.


For those taking extended stays, or even just a weekend trip, taking a stroll down America’s Cup Avenue will lead you to the best lodging and dining in Newport. This street, which transitions into Thames Street, is overflowing with local businesses, small boutiques and family owned shops. If you want the real Newport experience, this is the perfect place to start!


Bowen’s Wharf is the host of many of Newport’s most exciting events, such as the Newport International Boat Show and Bowen's Wharf Annual Seafood Festival. If you want to explore the town a bit more, we recommend the Cliff Walks, a scenic walking trail that spans Newport’s eastern coastline. Stop in at Rosemary and Thyme on your way back to the wharf. This must-try café is raved about by locals for its sandwiches and desserts, but make sure you get there early because it closes at 3PM!
