You'll notice this company has only positive reviews. I assume that folks who do not enjoy, do what I was planning to do, and just not leave a review. They may think, like me, that leaving a negative review on this small business is harsh,...More

This gentle experience is a great way to connect with friends and family. Try your hand at steering! Raise and drop the sail. Learn why these boats are SO important to N.H. history and why teaching our next generation is so vital!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing 2 hour cruise around the harbor. I highly recommend it. Great way to spend time with family and friends. Will definitely do it again next summer.

Three of us went on a sunset cruise on the Gundalow. It was "smooth sailing." We got to participate in hoisting the sail. It was educational and fun.

Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Learn about local history and the Gundalow boat. Love the use of the sail and sea critter education for kids (and others) on the boat.

We took an early afternoon sail. The crew was friendly and informative, they dispensed a wealth of information regarding the history of Portsmouth,the harbor structures, and the gundalow boats. The guests even get a chance to help hoist the sails.
