Short Term Mooring

Whether you want to overlook Marina Park, the Fun Zone or the entrance to the Harbor, our staff can help you book with your preferred view! City owned moorings may be reserved in advance, while other vacant moorings are only available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Most of the moorings in the harbor are secured via bow and stern and are generally not equipped with tackle to secure your boat. Be prepared to rig your own lines to the mooring cans. If needed, assistance may be provided by Harbor Department staff.  

Marina Park Rental Moorings

Rental moorings are available close to Marina Park. The City owned moorings in H and J field to the south channel (side closest to Marina Park) are sand-line type moorings, which are indicated by a single white and blue mooring can "MP RENTAL" 7 through 10. These moorings are available for rent at the standard mooring rental rates and can be reserved. 


  • Public docks are located throughout the harbor for short term dockage. Please be sure to check the time limits posted at each dock.
  • Free public pump-outs are also available at various locations throughout the harbor. Newport Harbor is a no discharge harbor.

  • We love playing at the park, and the restaurant is a great place to have lunch and meet friends. Today was the first day we used the new, marine services. When we pulled up to the marina, staff was quick to greet us and help tie us off and then rush to assist other boaters as they pulled up too. Once we were inside the office, we were able to secure us the mooring we wanted and answer all our questions. The team was helpful and even entertained our grand daughter and provided her with SWAG!! We are looking forward to great continued services!
