We went at 10 am on a Saturday morning -- the water was very calm and there weren't many boats in the harbor inlets to create wakes. Our young guide, Ryan, was great and made sure that we enjoyed the experience (one of us had...More

Enjoyed kayaking there in the Portsmouth area, but my experience with Bill of Portsmouth Kayak Adventures was the worst I have ever had with a kayak operator any place in the world. Please note that my wife and I are very experienced kayakers and have...More

Went kayaking with Gracie as our guide. What an enjoyable morning. Gracie is a great guide showing us the sights of the area. We loved the area-had no idea there was so much to see. We will be back.

Zac at Ports. Kayak Adventures totally saved the day! My daughter was on a field trip (NOT with Ports. Kayak), and left her favorite shirt on a small island off of Creek Farm. We stood waiting over an hour on the clam flats, hoping someone...More

This place is in a great location for stand up paddleboarding. My husband and I went for the morning and it was a great way to burn calories and have fun at the same time. I was a little wobbly at first, but then after...More

We are amature SUPers and enjoyed a great afternoon in the river. The spot just outside Portsmouth is beautiful and the staff is friendly and informative. Our boards were BICs (not my favorite) but were serviceable. They outfitted us with a map and were very...More
