Join us aboard the Victorian style, 348 passenger M/V Thomas Laighton and experience the fascinating legends of our legendary New Hampshire & Maine Seacoast. As you glide through Portsmouth Harbor, you will see a unique working port with tugboats, tankers, the nation’s oldest and active naval yard, the closed castle-like prison- “the Alcatraz of the East”, our quaint Olde Port waterfront, a famous grand resort hotel, 5 historic forts and 3 lighthouses proudly guiding mariners safely through our waters. Our own Isles of Shoals historian will guide you through these same waters for the duration of the trip.
Experience one of New England's most picturesque and historically relevant harbors. Relax as our narrator informs you about the many sights Portsmouth Harbor has to offer, including forts, lighthouses, one of the oldest settlements in New England, a robust working waterfront, and several quaint seacoast communities. Then, cruise up the Piscataqua river to Dover Point where some of New England's best foliage can be found all around the Great Bay Wilderness Area.
