Newport Harbor is one of the largest-recreational harbors in the United States and considered to be the jewel of Newport Beach. We welcome visiting boaters and strive to provide quality customer service to our harbor-users and stakeholder groups.

The Harbor Department is responsible for many of the harbor-related programs and services in the City of Newport Beach (City). As the "ambassadors" of the harbor, our team conducts daily harbor patrols and provide assistance and services to our community and visitors. Our team is entrusted with educating the community and coordinating the use of our anchorages and mooring fields. The Harbor Department also manages the City's guest marina, Marina Park, renting available slip space and moorings.
