An Authentic Working Waterfront That Invites You To Come And Play
Port of Newport Projects
International Terminal Rennovation: The Terminal is a 17 acre facility with 1,000 feet of deepwater waterfront, docks, and storage facilities with additional adjacent acres of industrial land. The Port of Newport is one of only three deepwater draft ports on the coast. Click for details.
Newport Fisheries Center: a mixed-use facility that supports the fishing industry through implementation of a targeted tenant mix. The building will act as a “hub” for fisheries related activity and will be designed to encourage and maximize interaction within the Newport fishing industry and the consumer/public through education and interpretation.

Cruise Ships: The Port hired consulting firm, Cook & Associates LLC, to study the feasibility of the Port of Newport becoming a “Port of Call” for cruise lines on the west coast. Click for details.
Refurbishing vessel pump-out at South Beach: Originally designed to install up to date pump-out equipment on a newly constructed dock adjoined to the fuel dock, the project has had to be scaled back to installing new equipment at the current location on the fuel dock. Permitting issues did not allow the project to be completed in the current year’s in-water work window, thus putting completion outside of the funding deadline.
Moorage Dock Rehabilitation:
The Port has prepared a five-year plan for moorage dock upgrades
at both the South Beach and commercial marinas. First dock on
the schedule is H-dock at South Beach.
Work is progressing on H Dock. When complete with new power and water supplies, the dock will be capable of handling vessels over 40’. Work is being done by Port staff - completion is scheduled for June of 2009.
