“Fun!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Took a cruise out to the Isles of Shoals, it was a very fun day trip. There is an option to stay over-night if wanted. Very scenic and calming. One warning: bring your own food. The food they cook is absolutely terrible. If needed, you can find some granola bars in the gift shop.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Great boat trip and walkabout on the Island with the Captain. My husband and I recommend this highly to anyone. Fabulous views. Interesting having dinner with the conference attendees who were at Star Island - the waitstaff was kind and helpful.

“A must see!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Took a cruise the the Isles - a fun 2.5 hours with lots of interesting history of the isles. Would like to return and actually take a cruise that drops you off on the islands. Lots of fun on a sunny day - don't forget your sunscreen! The Isles are part of the history of Portsmouth that gives you a more complete picture.

“Beautiful boat trip”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We took the boat to the Isle of Shoals - didn't get to go on the Islands themselves but got close enough to see a good deal of the islands. I could understand more why there was an artists' colony there, where painters like Childe Hassam painted - very rugged but very beautiful. The narrator was knowledgeable. Worth the trip.
