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. 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. Fine dining and nightlife is within walking distance in Portsmouth and Kittery Foreside Come for a visit and see for yourself what a great spot we have!

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.
