We went out with Captain Clive and thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved how he explained the process of lobster fishing, discussed the rules and regs, and answered our questions about the lobster industry which is quite interesting! It lasted about 90 minutes. I would very much recommend this tour!

We saw how the traps were baited and harvested and the laws on how small and how large the lobsters can be. He shows you the differences between male and females lobsters... More

Had an amazing experience with Captain Clive. He told me he doesn't check his Trip Advisor reviews, but I urged him to because they were all amazing. He has a passion for lobstering, is extremely knowledgeable, and gets right to the point. I would easily do this again!

We learned so much that we did not know about lobsters and fishing for them. We respect their hard work and love for their craft. Our time and money... More

I highly recommend this for anyone in the area. Captain Clive and Cage were very informative, fun, and patient. Our entire family enjoyed the trip and learned a lot from Captain Clive about lobsters, lobster fishing, and the regulations. Cage took extra time with our youngest son (11) and made sure he had a good time. We also enjoyed hearing... More
