As local residents my family have been going on the Portsmouth Harbor Cruise for years. We bring all of our visiting relatives and friends on this cruise! Their schedule awards you the opportunity to take a cruise throughout the day with certain cruises consisting of narration about the History of Portsmouth and the surrounding areas. Other cruises allow you to... More

The small feel is really nice - we got to talk to a lot of the ~30 people on board. We had a perfect evening to tour the harbor and out to Wentworth area. Moon was full and seas were calm. A very nice time and very romantic!

We've been regular customers of The Heritage for years. Great experience whether you're out with family, friends, or both! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable so you're guaranteed to not only have a great time, but also learn about Portsmouth area history too. Plenty of choices throughout the seasons and within each day so whether we're in the mood... More

Had a wonderful morning cruise aboard the Heritage, and Captain Dmitri's narration was informative and entertaining. Next time, we will go on the sunset cruise, which does not include narration but it was fun to hear about the history our 1st time around.

This is a nice, narrated 1.25 hour cruise of Portsmouth Harbor which gives you a sense of history of the area. You see lighthouses, forts, mansion, and the Portsmouth naval shipyard which has been building war ships since the 1600's. The naval shipyard built and still builds and refurbished submarines, and we got to see two subs being refurbished while... More

Portsmouth has a lot to offer and is a favorite even of New Hamsphirites. It brings you back to the old streets as it was when primarily a fishing town. Now, you can tour the heritage and also enjoy a delicious snack, lunch or dinner at many fine restaurants; enjoy a micro brew and visit Strawberry Banke. And you can... More

My family thoroughly enjoyed our 90 minute cruise with Portsmouth Harbor Cruises. The scenery was lovely and the narrative given by our captain, Demetrius, was extremely informative. A cruise with Portsmouth Harbor Cruises is a great way to see Portsmouth and to learn more about its history. The 90 minute duration is perfect-especially if you have young children as we... More

My girlfriend and I intentionally chose the 10:00 am short trip today, because we had things to do. It was a lovely ride out and Demetrious was interesting with local lore, but not too much...just enough. we each had a Bloody Mary (which was excellent), and enjoyed the sunny ride. Would recommend to anyone...under 20 dollars each.

Excellent harbor cruise for both Portsmouth area residents and visitors to the area. It definitely is a cruise that I highly recommend. Not only was the scenery beautiful but the narrative was very informative. It was so enjoyable, my husband and I are looking forward to taking a Fall cruise during foliage season.

If you ever get to New Castle or Portsmouth, NE - do yourself and favor and take the evening wine cruise on the Heritage through Portsmouth Harbor Cruises. Nice selection of wines and hor doeuvres were served. It's a great way to see the harbor and have some wine as the sun is going down (in the summer). The Heritage... More
