Welcome aboard!
Sail on 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 sights and sounds of Portsmouth, NH and Kittery, ME while sailing on the Piscataqua River. The Gundalow Company is nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to protecting our region's maritime heritage and environment through education and action.


Join us for a public sail 7-days a week. The Piscataqua is also an ideal vessel for company retreats, family reunions, special events, and other types of private charters. Read more about sailing on the Piscataqua here.


Book a school sail and bring your students on a historic gundalow for team-building and hands-on learning! As a floating classroom, the Piscataqua provides a unique field trip destination, mornings and afternoons May through October. Learn more!
