Reviews for Wentworth By the Sea Marina
Absolutely Outstanding!, 2017-07-29
Captain: , Providence (443)

Very well-run marina. Great staff who are beyond helpful. All of the facilities are in top-notch condition. This is clearly a first-class facility.

Exceptional, 2016-09-07
Captain: , Weston, VT (570)

We had planned to stay in downtown Portsmouth but chose Wentworth instead. We made the right decision. A superb facility. It is not inexpensive but we enjoyed it so we added on 2 days to our three day stay and fortunately they were able to extend. Great staff and very nice loaner car. Borrowed it to hit the grocery and NH liquor store. A very nice pool setup with bar service. We launched our kayaks and had fun exploring the area. Important for us is good wifi which they had. Worth the money.

Excellant, 2016-08-17
Captain: , Camden, Maine (100)

Very nice place. Slips are easy in, easy out, and the deck hands are very helpful and nice. Very easy access to good resturants. We will be back.

Get What You Pay For, 2016-08-05
Captain: , Wickford, RI (560)

Top shelf marina with excellent facilties and staff. They drove us to town, took Uber back. We had breakfast at the dock food bar, which opened at 7:30, and it was fine but we did not eat at the other restaurants on-site. They sure looked good.
But it is pricey. Made several inquireis about all the unsed moorings across form the docks but was always told they are private and not for rent.

Great high end marina, 2015-09-04
Captain: , Rock Hall, MD (225)

Excellent facilities, courteous staff, modern loaner car! What more can you want? This is a beautiful place and the staff works hard to make your stay comfortable. Excellent restaraunts. Beautiful views of the harbor.

The Best of The Best, 2015-07-16
Captain: , Daniel Island, SC (310)

This is the most "together" marina/destination we have ever experieced. The amenities are spectacular, three restaurants, swimming pool, loaner cars & clean restrooms/laundry facility. What truly makes Wentworth special is the spirit, attitude and professionalism of the staff, on the docks and in the office. Clearly their work here is a passion, not just a job.
Then there is Portsmouth, with its quaint, gas light downtown, many shopping and dining options and its history.
Wentworth an absolute "must stop" between Boston and Portland and has replaced Roche Harbor in Washington state's San Juan Islands as our all-time favorite.

6-26-2014 Pricey but worth it, 2014-06-28
Captain: , Falmouth Maine (80)

The cost here $128 for a 36 foot minimum is well worth it. The service here is excellent with very friendly and helpful staff. Free use of first class showers, bathrooms, pool and even 1.5 hours use per day of a courtesey car.

Clean Showers and Stable docks, 2013-09-20
Captain: , South Portland, Maine (847)

A very clean facility with lots of space for a huge boat if you need it, this is our stop of choice going south to Boston or north to Portland.

The location is more convienient than Portsmouth or Kittery harbor and a lot less current to contend with.

Exceptional marina!, 2013-07-17
Captain: , Hingham, MA (1079)

We had a wonderful two night stay here. Gift pack provided to us on arrival, staff is very friendly,the facilities were very good, and the general area was very pretty. We took the complimentary car into Portsmouth to check out the downtown area. Dinghy ride up the river was great with islands to explore. Highly recommend stopping here. Obviously this is not an inexpenseive marina, but worth a visit if your budget allows.

Excellent Marina, 2013-07-02
Captain: , St. Louis, MO (1011)

Excellent facilities with a welcoming and helpful staff. This is the place to tie up near Portsmouth.

Pay attention to the current in the river which can be significant if landing on an outside location.

Courtesy cars are available if you need to get to town and there are a couple eateries nearby.

Nice first class marina, 2013-06-23
Captain: , Portsmouth, NH (279)

Wentworth is a classy first class marina with easy access from the east. Just follow the channel markers and you're there. There are some wakes but generally calm with few current or wind problems. There is not a lot close by except the Wentworth Hotel which has really good food and bars. Portsmouth is about 20 minutes away with just about anything you'd want. Nice dockage with good amenities.

Wentworth by the Sea Marina, 2013-05-01
Captain: , Mystic, CT (10)

We stayed here on our way to Maine. Easy to access fuel dock with pumpout. Staff was very helpful and the marina itself is pristine. They even offer a loaner car for transients. Don't miss this one.

Highly recomend, 2013-04-25
Captain: , lighthouse point (289)

went by car this time as we were visiting family, stayed here in the 90's and the place has gotten even better. Had a chance to walk the docks and talk with staff who are very friendly, its a great marina!

Great Stay, 2012-07-21
Captain: , portsmouth, nh (39)

The reviewer below must have caught them on an off day...we stayed three nights and couldn't be more pleased with the facilities, staff and level of service we recieved. Great place to stay!! highly recomended.

Friendly folks but not great for transient, 2012-06-21
Captain: , Macatawa Michigan (1144)

Stayed for one night in 100 degrees. We fueled up and pumped out. The nice young guy that was helping us was doing the job of 3 dock hands. The actual slip was fine. The restaurants and the resort have been taken over by Marriott. Our meal wasn't that good and very pricey. Nobody really knows too much about what is going on. Our dock keys didn't always work. The bathroom couldn't be opened. So something is going on and that makes the price not really worth it at least for now.

Outstanding, don't miss., 2012-05-31
Captain: , Erie, Pa. (1896)

Went for fuel price and very pleasantly surprised. Magnificent facility, free loaner car, terriffic staff, friendly, helpful and cordial. Setting is as nice as can be, Latitudes restaurant and adjacent hotel are great. Wish I could have stayed for a couple of days. Fuel and docks rates are accurate as listed as of 5-30-12.

New Englands Finest Marina, 2011-03-28
Captain: , Portsmouth, NH (10)

Top notch service, facilities, location, location, location, very pretty, plenty of amenities. Thanks Wentworth!

Helpful staff, good restaurants, expensive, 2010-03-05
Captain: , Sarasota (1427)

Slip was $4/ft (and they have a waiting list for yearly slipholders). I guess it's a short season and not many cruiser's marinas. Lots of staff - would say helpful but not friendly - may be a New England thing.

Well done indeed..., 2009-08-02
Captain: , Portsmouth NH (71)

This was our second trip/visit to the Wentworth and very enjoyable. Customer service remains top notch with amenities such as: Laundry, Pool, Clean showers and friendly staff. We borrowed their courtesy car to go into town for some shopping and provisioning which was appreciated.

Yes rates are not the lowest but their friendliness, service and amenities are worth it in our opinion…

Wentworth-By-The-Sea Marina, 2009-02-19
Captain: , Poughkeepsie, NY (6077)

This is a great place for a layover. They have laundry facilities and an excellent restaurant overlooking the marina. There's a full sized swimming pool which is great for kids. They even provide a Mercedes at no charge for guest usage! We always take the Mercedes (a stationwagon) into town to get groceries and dinner. You're only asked to replace the gas you use. The docks are first rate with fingers on both port and starboard, there's no danger of bumping other boats or a piling in docking. However, all this comes at a price, $3.65/f as of 9/08.

Bad Luck on the Moorings, 2008-08-30
Captain: , Saint Petersburg, FL (181)

We are cruising in a 49' Trawler with a 5 ft draft. The mooring agent kept asking us to accept balls that were not right. They were either too shallow, no swing room or surrounded by lobster pots. After a half hour of meandering through the field in a current, we left. We just could not understand why the agent was asking us to catch balls that were obsiously not suited to us. We did not use the docks due to expense. We do not recommed the mooring field for boats our size.

An Awesome Marina, 2008-07-23
Captain: , South Portland, ME (537)

Wentworth by the Sea is an awesome marina. The docks have been upgraded and are new. Fuel is the best price I have found near here. The dockage is not cheap (currently about $3.65 per foot) but the service is second to none. Run by a great lady named Pat Kelly, this marina is all about customer service. Also has restaurants available onsite.

WW By the Sea - Sept 2007, 2007-09-09
Captain: , Georgetown, Maine (144)

Moorings $75 per night - $120 for a slip for a 34 footer. A real posh resort!!

A resort for vessel and crew, 2007-02-02
Captain: , Stratford, CT (146)

This is wonder marina and hotel facility with pool and restaurants on site. Docks are older, but decent and the staff is friendly. A courtesy car is available for shopping trips and the city is a short taxi ride away.
