Row around Gosport Harbor in one of Star Island’s classic wooden rowboats. Each boat comfortably sits three adults, or one adult and 3-4 youth. Life jackets are required and are available at the boathouse at the end of pier. Lifeguards on the dock will assist with sending you off on an afternoon outing and tying up when docking. Many people enjoy rowing to Smuttynose Island across the harbor, or floating in between the moored sailboats and motor yachts. Rowboats are permitted to travel only within Gosport Harbor and may be unavailable during unsafe sea conditions.
Rowboat reservations may be made at the Oceanic Hotel’s front desk and may be rented for $5 per hour.
