SAIL ON THE GUNDALOW PISCATAQUA
For local maritime history, be sure to visit the Gundalow Company, nearby at 60 Marcy Street.
Go for a sail on the river aboard the gundalow Piscataqua, built on the grounds of Strawbery Banke in 2011. The Piscataqua, which carries 42 passengers, sails three times a day, seven days a week. A two hour sail is a great way to experience Portsmouth's working waterfront from a traditional vessel unique to the Piscataqua Region since 1650. (For schedule and tickets, click here.)
Strawbery Banke shows the development of life and commerce on shore; the gundalow, originally designed to carry goods from the harbor, does the same for the river and the environmental history of the Great Bay watershed.
Strawbery Banke and the Gundalow Company offer reciprocal ticket discounts: get $5 off each ticket when purchasing tickets for both.

Combined field trips to Strawbery Banke Museum and on the Piscataqua.
Educators at Strawbery Banke and the Gundalow Company -- docked on the river, just across the park from Strawbery Banke -- work together so that school groups can make one consolidated trip to Portsmouth and enjoy two field trip experiences. Click here for more details.
The two organizations also present a Summer Camp, "All Hands on Deck."
