Take The Kids On A Pirate Cruise

Take The Kids On A Pirate Cruise


Every Thursday evening Al Gauron has a special Pirate Cruise. We have personally taken this cruise with our granddaughter the last 2 years and it’s definitely going to be an annual event for us. Fun was had by all adults and children onboard. All the children get an eye patch and a sword, and they supply huge water guns for fending off the pirates that try to board the ship. It’s a well run event.

Hampton Beach fishing boats

Al Gauron Deep Sea Fishing & Whale Watching has been a family-owned business in operation for over 75 years. Captain Al Gauron started taking people recreational fishing in the summer of 1934. He had two boats operating by the 1950’s, and along with the fishing business his family grew with four sons: Ricky, Rocky, Randy, and Ronny.  Al built a fishing empire which is now being passed on to the next generation.

A Little Bit Of History At Hampton Beach

A Little Bit Of History At Hampton Beach

If history is your thing then a trip to the Tuck Museum in Hampton should be on your list of to do’s.

Tuck Museum North beach vacation

The Tuck Museum of Hampton History is the home of the Hampton Historical Society.  It consists of a number of buildings, monuments, and artifacts, all located on Park Avenue in Hampton

Known since 1994 as the Hampton Historical Society, the society was incorporated in 1925 as the Meeting House Green Memorial Association to honor the original settlers of Hampton. A descendant of one of those families, Edward Tuck, generously donated funds to purchase a house on the site of the original meeting house green. The land surrounding the house was laid out as a park, and the house was turned into a small museum, which was appropriately named the Tuck.

The museum has continued to grow. Other buildings on the Green have joined the main house as exhibition areas. There is a nineteenth-century school house, an eighteenth-century barn, a fire-fightning museum, and a Hampton Beach tourist cottage.
