I arranged for a personal kayak tour and we paddled around Newcastle Island. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area and gave me a narrated tour of the sites we passed. The customer service is very good. I called and asked about kayak tour options and they said they would get back to me which they did. This is... More

We took the guided tour. There were apparently an uncharacteristically large number of people in the tour that day, somewhere around 15 - 20 people. The guides went through the safety, paddle, and kayak training, carefully and made sure everyone had a good understanding. The guides and everyone we dealt with at the company were very nice, polite, and efficient.... More

At 9:00 am, the earliest that they answer the phone, I called to check on conditions and was told the water was... More

Great customer service. Prices a little high. No competition. Many places to stop and get out and stretch your legs.

My boyfriend Dave and I had a great time using Portsmouth Kayaking Adventures this summer. We went for the first time in June of 2013 and a few more times during the summer after that. We always went on solo adventures, but the guides give you a map and directions on where to go and what you can see. The... More

We arrived early, but that was not a problem for the woman at the desk, who handled the paperwork efficiently. We three we're very fortunate to be the only clients for Molly, a vivacious and knowledgable guide. Well versed in the local flora and fauna, she led us on a very pleasant circular voyage,stopping at small island (Snuffbox?) to,stretch our... More

My wife and I spent 2 hours with a guide paddling around the coves around Castle Island. Never did sea kayaking before and the inlets were very easy going. Got a good history lesson from our guide who was extremely friendly. Only compliant is that our pace was too slow. We had a wonderful day and will definitely go back.

Terrible experience. Maybe we caught everyone on a bad day- or maybe the guy running it just has a horrendous attitude. Our reservations got messed up, no one warned us about the river tides. Was beached twice, and had no one around to help us. Don't appreciate getting yelled at because we are from the mountains and didn't know the... More

I reserved kayaks for a group of six on a Saturday. We arrived a little early and were greeted warmly, set up with our equipment and given friendly tips on the best routes we should take and some sights to take of note of. A few of the group had never kayaked and before setting out, the guy setting us... More
