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.

A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours cruising the beautiful Portsmouth (NH) harbor in a replica of a "gundalow" -- a shallow-draft barge-like boat with an unusual sail, used for river shipping in the area during the 17th-19th centuries. We did the two-hour...More
