Sail aboard the Piscataqua, a traditional reproduction of the flat-bottom gundalow barges that were once prevalent along local waterways. Educational, informative and fun, a sail is a great way to explore the sights and sounds of the Piscataqua River. Morning, afternoon, and sunset sails run Memorial Day through Columbus Day, and we offer weekly specialty sails featuring music, guest speakers, local tastings, and more. Private charters are also available.

Ship was comfortable and spacious, crew friendly and informative. Casual ride to the mouth of the Piscataqua River and back. Beautiful views of Portsmouth, Newcastle, Kittery and of course the Shipyard. Brought a picnic and beverages. Awesome evening was had by all.

We went on the Kids Ride Free tour and had a wonderful time. The boat was full, but since it doesn't hold that many, everyone had a place to sit and room to move around. Keep in mind the seats are basically benches that hold...More
