Additional info:


The bell buoy marking the harbor%u2019s only entrance is at 33 35.06'N,117 52.69'W. The broad entrance channel is formed by two jetties, marked with lights flashing green (6 sec) on the west jetty, and flashing red (4 sec) on the east jetty. On your approach you will see the Corona Del Mar State Beach immediately outside the east jetty and you may see boats in the anchorage area located off the beach. During lobster season (October to March) avoid the fields of lobster pots flanking the entrance by shaping your course close to the bell buoy and, from there, directly to the center of the entrance channel.

Although broad and well marked, there is often heavy vessel traffic in the entrance channel so proceed with care, particularly noticing the bait barge anchored close inside the east jetty, April through November. Enforcement of the harbor%u2019s No Wake rule and 5 mph speed limit begins at the harbor entrance and extends throughout the harbor.

Other price info: Moorings are administered by the Harbor Patrol and are offered on a first come first served basis. Moorings may not be reserved in advance, but as you approach the harbor call the Harbormaster's office to check availability. Stop at the Harbormaster's visitors dock just beyond the end of the entrance channel to make those arrangements. Bring your vessel documentation or registration information and photo ID.

Vessels may be boarded and inspected to ensure that the marine sanitation device is properly functioning.

May-October is $25 per night. November- April is $15 per night. Pay by cash, check, or credit card.

Most of the moorings in the harbor are bow and stern tie downs and may or may not be equipped with the tackle necessary to secure your boat. Be prepared to rig your own lines to the mooring cans. There are seven single point moorings located just inside the harbor entrance at Carnation Cove. These offer the deepest mooring draft in the harbor, about 10 feet at lowest tide.

Reviews for Newport Harbor
Very Nice Harbor, Bad Cops, 2012-04-27
Captain: , Morro Bay, Ca (101)

If you're sailing south along California, you'll see a change below Point Conception. Not only the weather, but the Harbor Patrol will change from Harbor Patrol to Harbor Police. In Newport they are police first and not helpful. Public facilities are hard to come by. Moorings are fairly inexpensive at $15.00 a day. I was 2 hours late to pay $15.00 one day and they impounded my boat and charged me $150.00 to unchain it. Another cruiser had his dinghy come lose in a storm and they charged him an $80.00 towing fee, $150.00 impound fee, plus a fine for parking his dink illegally on the beach that it blew onto.
Great restaurants everywhere and great bars as well. Minney's Yacht Surplus is right up the street. Excellent holding in the anchorage and you get 5 days for free. Great surf all up and down the beach as well. Oh, they are very particular about the time limits on the public docks. When it says 3 hous, they mean 2 hours and 59 minutes.

This is a huge mooring field. Plenty of facilities all around and designated spots to land a dinghy. This office handles the moorings. Shower facility is available but not much else. You can pick up fuel at one of the designated fuel stations in the mooring field. The field is well protected from the ocean swells but hang on to your hat if a Souther comes through.
