We loved the rowing shells, boat shop and chandlery. Great access to the water and sponsor of many classes as well as the fantastic annual Wooden Boat Festival. This place has something for everyone interested in boats or sailing.

This used to be a more interesting place when they were actually making boats there, but it still has a good store and the best coffee shop in P.T.

We saw some boats being finished after school kids had started it. There really wasn't much to see here. We were disappointed at no one being around, etc.

What a wonderful day to show off the Fort! Educational offerings, and friendly staff. The opportunity to hand feed sea creatures was a special treat. Amazing to be able to see the octopus chomp on food! Near so many other activities.
