Boating, Fishing, and Travel Information for Hampton, NH
Though most people know Hampton for the miles of beach that draw scores of beachgoers, fishermen, and surfers, they are overlooking a fine harbor that serves as a great base for exploring the Seacoast and Isles of Shoals and is a great destination itself.
Hampton Harbor, about 10 miles southwestward of Portsmouth Harbor and 1.5 miles southward of Great Boars Head, is an inlet formed by the confluence of Hampton River and Blackwater River and other rivers, sloughs, and creeks that drain the extensive area of salt marsh to the westward of Hampton, Seabrook, and Salisbury Beaches.
The harbor is principally an anchorage for numerous pleasure craft and a considerable number of party and charter hire fishing boats which operate from the harbor from late spring to early fall. There is also some year-round fishing activity.
