    Portsmouth Harbor Tour

    Cruise through Portsmouth Harbor and listen to the history and lore of one of New England's very oldest ports including the stories of Paul Revere's ride to Portsmouth that helped ignite the American Revolution, the daring espionage of a young German U-boat commander during WWII, and the eerie history of the castle like "Alcatraz of the East" to name just a few. You'll also see present day port operations first hand including a modern Coast Guard rescue station, lighthouses, several historic forts, the nation's oldest naval shipyard and possibly a fast attack nuclear submarine, colonial architecture, wildlife and much more.

Charters

The M/V Thomas Laighton is one of the most unique venues available for your special event. Our 300 capacity passenger vessel truly is a "floating function facility" that can adapt to any type of special event from weddings and rehearsal dinners to company outings and celebratory parties. The best part about chartering our vessel (besides the breathtaking views and tremendous service) is that the boat and all of its amenities are yours alone.
