Cute shop with lots of nautical/Portsmouth items. Staff was helpful and not pushy, which was nice. Bought a few items - 1 of which we’ve been looking for, for years. Thought the prices were reasonable as well.

This is a must stop store if looking for a souvenir or local reading material. We have spent two summers in Portsmouth and have stopped in both times. Items are also reasonably priced. So recommend stopping in if downtown for dining, sightseeing, etc.

We stopped in to purchase a gift for a family member. The ship was a great selection of Portsmouth stuff. It also has things that are rather unique. There was a welcome mat made out of lobster nets and locally handcarved items.

This,was the only place in town that I was able to find tourist like souvenirs (shirts, shot glasses, magnet, etc.). Prices were very reasonable and a really nice selection.

The merchandise is nautical in theme and they have a wide selection of clothes, clocks, barometers and anything else related to the sea. Prices reasonable and staff very friendly and not pushy. They help when you need it. Lots of great stuff

Great shop with lots of fun nautical themed items. Tees, accessories, cute items for the home. There were a few items that we found cheaper at nearby shops. So it pays to look around a bit. Worth a peek inside.
