Provides a nice view of the harbor, but was too brief to show much of the coast line. They were anxious offer beverage service. There are some good photo ops.

A 75 minute ride of Portsmouth Harbor; lots of historical info and lots of landmarks to see. The boat is a good size but make sure you get in line early to get a good seat - they loaded it to the max so good...More
