Portsmouth Harbor Cruises

Discover the Piscataqua’s Heritage…

Come aboard for a tour of the NH Seacoast’s waterways on a 1963 60′ Deltaville Deadrise.

Our narrated cruises are casual, sometimes amusing and always informative.

Whether discussing the birdlife of the inland waterways, the folklore of the Isles of Shoals, the ship building history of Portsmouth Harbor, or just musing on the ever changing tides of the Piscataqua, our captains always have something of interest to offer.

Updated PHC Safety Policy Guidelines for COVID-19


Passenger Safety Guidelines

In order to protect customers and employees, we are strictly adhering to the guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the State of New Hampshire.

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, we kindly ask that you do not sail with us. For pre-purchased reservations, please call us as soon as possible. We would be happy to offer you a credit for a future cruise or a refund.

According to the CDC Public Conveyance Transportation Order, all passengers must wear a face covering when boarding, disembarking and for the duration of the trip. This requirement does not apply to children under 2 years of age and persons with a disability who cannot wear a mask. While onboard, masks may be temporarily removed to eat or drink. Passengers who refuse to wear a face covering will not be allowed to board and will not receive a refund.

Our capacity has been limited to allow for more space between parties not from the same household.

Alcohol-based hand sanitizer is readily available.

Extra time is allotted between trips for sanitization. Commonly-touched surfaces, work areas, and public areas are cleaned and disinfected frequently using an 80% alcohol disinfectant.

Employee Safety Procedures

Our staff’s safety measures strictly adhere to the CDC Guidance for Businesses and New Hampshire’s Universal Best Practices. Such measures include (but are not limited to):

All employees have been trained and provided with the proper education regarding Universal Safe Practices.

Daily self-attestation of staff before each shift for symptoms, risk factors and exposure of COVID-19.

Employees will wear face coverings at all times when within 6 feet of space of others for more than 10 minutes (on land) and at all times on the water.
