Blog : Gundalow Company Sets Sail for Summer

By Corey | May 20, 2015 | in

While summer hasn't officially started yet, it doesn't mean you can't act like it is! Join The Gundalow Company this Memorial Day weekend as their sailing season kicks off. Ride on the gundalow Piscataqua around the stunning sounds of Portsmouth and New Castle, NH and Kittery, ME. Participants can join the crew in raising the sail, help steer the boat, or just sit back and relax on the water. 

The Gundalow Company offers two-hour public sails for up to 42 passengers starting this Memorial Day until the end of October. The daily river tours that depart from Portsmouth are a fantastic way to experience our local rivers. Other offers include a variety of special sails such as concerts, lectures, sunset sails, private charters, free trips for kids on Saturday mornings, and even brunch on Sundays.

Since their founding in 2002, the Gundalow Company has made its main mission 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. In 2011, the Gundalow Company built their floating classroom christened the Piscataqua. Over 2,000 students, scouts, and campers have enjoyed a unique educational experience in 2014 whilst sailing the Seacoast's tidal waters on a traditional wooden vessel.

This summer also marks the debut of Gundalow's River Kids Day Camp. The first campers at this new program will spend their mornings on the water doing interactive activities on navigation, environmental science and history. Their afternoons will be spent doing shore based explorations. The Day Camp ($240 per child) will run from 9 AM to 3 PM and is the perfect way to educate kids on the importance of our great Seacoast, all while being outside in the fun summer sun!
