Welcome to Piscataqua Marina, formerly known as Badgers Island Marina East. We are located about 2 Nm from the mouth of the Piscataqua River at the base of the Memorial Bridge between Badgers’ Island in Maine and Portsmouth, NH. Our marina offers slips ranging from 32-125’ for summer, winter and transient occupancy. We have available showers, 30-100 amp electrical service, ice, water at the slip, complimentary wi-fi service and pump-out, parking and laundry facilities. We also offer winter and year-round liveaboard space. Our concrete floating docks are almost as stable as land. Dave, our dockmaster, is on site Wednesdays through Sundays during the summer season. Our small, 27 slip marina offers a true family atmosphere. A short walk across the Memorial Bridge puts you in the middle of historic downtown Portsmouth. Listen to concerts in Prescott Park directly across the river.

Location is quiet and calm. Dockmaster was very friendly and helpful. Clean bathrooms and showers. Good proximity to downtown Portsmouth and Kittery

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 Dockmadter Dave Ok

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.
