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.

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

We recently took a guided kayak tour with Ryan of Portsmouth Kayak Adventures. Despite a drizzly & cool day, we had a great time! We were on the water for 2 1/2 hours and learned alot about the history of that area and the Sagamore Creek. I will definitely use this company again when I return to the New Hampshire... More
