In case you're not aware, be advised the Piscataqua River has quite a current (up to 5 kts) and this marina is very close to the lift bridge, so if you have a lot of air draft, make sure you are ready to dock in current (or time it during slack). That current flows through the slips, so not always the quietest anchorage. Facilities (laundry, showers) are well maintained and attended. Super easy access to downtown Portsmouth. There are even a couple of good eats on Badger's Island (the land this is attached to).

A sweet spot just before the first lift bridge. It’s a very friendly dock with several lives aboards. We were waiting out hurricane Henri so the location allowed us to walk across the bridge into town.
Dave, the dockmaster is the one person to tell you exactly how and when to enter or leave the dock. Do not ignore his expert advice. He helped us leave a tight spot this morning even though it was his day off! Truly great service. I highly recommend this marina.

Nice, small, no services
Rocking because boaters on the River do not pay attention to the no wake zone

This marina is truly a hidden gem. Close to downtown Portsmouth. Dave, the dockmaster, was fantastic. Amenities are wonderful. We will definitely be
back next year for a longer stay.

A great welcome to Maine. The current rips through here, but Dave the dockmaster will direct you in and out safely at slack tide. Once in, the small marina is neat and clean. The area is well worth a visit.

It's been mentioned that the current in the Piscataqua River is very strong. We arrived at slack tide and had no problem docking at the end of the dock. However, when the current increased our sailboat was rocking wildly. It was a rough night aboard.
The dockmaster Dave was very helpful and friendly. He advised us on an ideal time to shove off given the current and proximity to the bridge.

Strong currents and boat wakes make the east dock a tough place to stay. Dave the dockmaster is great.

Good stay, excellent location. Friendly service and friendly neighbors.
As I have a bigger boat, it was a little rock-and-roll on the outer dock between the current and the passing boats, but the marina was rather pleasant.
