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.

This was an unexpected delight! The layout of the boat made it very easy to interact with other passengers and the crew. It was a hands on experience as you could help raise and lower the sail and the young kids helped "steer" the boat....More
