Arrived with a friend for the 10 am tour. I've kayaked before, my friend hasn't. Check in with an unenthusiastic young lady. Told to wait out back for the tour. Bathroom facility is a port a potty. We joined a group of about 15 people. Tide was low so the launch area was rocky, on an incline. Was eventually pointed... More

We recently visited Portsmouth and only had a day and a half there. I found the kayak tours here on Trip Advisor and it was a good pick. We went on a Thursday night, our group ages ranged between 12-74 and we all enjoyed it. It was a quite night on the water so it was a great time for... More

Thank you for taking reservations!! We couldn't find a location in York, Maine to pre-book for our party of 6... and found this location online. Beautiful harbor inlet great for all levels of experience. Loved SUP experience-- so fun for our boys 10 & 12 -- and the adults. This outfit could stand to up their customer service. Act like...

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
