The Dock and Gundalow
The Piscataqua usually sails from our dock in Prescott Park, at the end of Water Street. If navigating on road by GPS enter “60 Marcy Street” in Portsmouth. Water Street is a private alley within the park approximately 50 yards down the street from our gift shop, and across the street from the restaurant Mombo. The dock is located at the end of Water Street. If you visit our gift shop at 60 Marcy Street we are happy to point you in the right direction.
Here’s a map showing the office and dock

From Concord, NH area, take Rt 4 East to Portsmouth Traffic Circle, then I-95 N to Exit 7
From North of Portsmouth, take I-95 South to Exit 7

From Exit 7: At the end of the ramp, head south toward the center of Portsmouth: left if coming from the north, right if coming from the south. Proceed approximately one mile, through one traffic light, to a yellow blinking light. At this blinking light veer to the right onto Russell St.(by the Sheraton). At the stop sign at the end of Russell Street, turn right. At the next intersection, make a left turn onto Maplewood Ave. Stay in the left lane and go through 2 sets of lights. At the third set of lights take a left onto State Street. Get into the right-hand lane on State Street. Go through 2 sets of lights and continue to the stop sign where State St. intersects with Marcy St. Take a right onto Marcy St. – Prescott Park is on your left hand side. For parking, continue past the park and turn left on to Mechanic St. and cross the bridge to Peirce Island. The first lot on the left is just for the fishing fleet, the lot on the right is just for the boat launch . . . anything beyond that is fair game.
