Blog : 3rd Anniversary of the Launching of the Piscataqua

By Patrick Haigis | Dec 10, 2014 | in

The Gundalow Company is celebrating the 3rd Anniversary of the launching if the Piscataqua! Since the launch of the Piscataqua in 2011 more than 5,000 students have sailed on board and are now on their way to becoming the next generation of stewards of our waterways!

Founded in 2002, the nonprofit Gundalow Company aims to connect residents of the Seacoast and beyond with this historic icon of river commerce, while instilling a sense of environmental stewardship for the Piscataqua region’s cherished waterways. The Piscataqua was built as a floating classroom for school and youth groups. They also offer two-hour public sails for up to 42 passengers Memorial Day through the end of October. Their daily river tours – which typically last about 2 hours – depart primarily from Portsmouth and are a great way to experience our rivers. They offer a variety of special sails too such as concerts, lectures, sunset sails, private charters, free trips for kids on Saturday mornings, and even brunch on Sundays!

The Gundalow Company is extremely grateful for the support of community members and hopes to see everyone on board ASAP! Whether you're new to the area or a long-time native, Gundalow tours are a great way to gain a new perspective on the Seacoast area and a lesson in the importance of protecting our waterways.
