Portland Riverside Marina is located on 37 acres in Portland, Connecticut, and boasts more than a quarter-mile of frontage on the beautiful Connecticut River just across from the city of Middletown.

We have two travel lifts rated at 12 and 35 tons, a 20-ton hydraulic trailer and a 20-ton crane allowing us to service boats up to 50 feet. We offer full mechanical services including total repower of all marine engines as well as carpentry and fiberglass repairs. 

It's easy to navigate upriver in the well-marked channel to Portland, Connecticut, and our customers love the scenic trip aboard their powerboats and sailboats. You'll pass through some of the state's most beautiful scenery and see sights such as Essex harbor, Hamburg Cove, Gillette Castle and the Goodspeed Opera House.
You can read about the trip here.

Gasoline is available at a nearby marina and the delivery of diesel fuel can be arranged.

Summer Activities

Portland Riverside is a family marina operating in the old-fashioned tradition. The staff is friendly and welcoming and help is available with just about any kind of problem. Customers are free to work on their boats and good advice is plentiful. Each summer, the marina hosts a popular party in connection with its annual Catfish Tournament.

The marina is located 33 miles north of Old Saybrook. The river isn't difficult to navigate but those new to the river are advised to stay within the wide channel, which is well marked. The swing bridge at Haddam provides approximately 15 ft. clearance at normal high tide and opens for pleasure boat traffic on the half-hour.

Portland is an ideal stop for those cruising to Hartford, which is 20 miles farther north. The cruise to Hartford passes through some of the most beautiful sections of the Connecticut River.
