About Lucky Catch Cruises
Lucky Catch Cruises offers 1 1/2 hour lobstering excursions in Casco Bay, Maine. The tours depart from Long Wharf in Portland and operate from the first weekend of May through the last weekend of October. A typical lobster excursion involves pulling eight traps near scenery such as the Portland Headlight Lighthouse, Civil War Fort Gorges and the Seal Rocks. Lobsters can be purchased after the tour for a discounted price and brought to the restaurant next door for cooking. We limit the number of passengers on each boat, so please call ahead for reservations. All the best from Maine!

We loved Lucky Catch! The guides were so friendly and informative. Everyone on the boat got to do something- bait the trap, put the rubber band on the lobster claw, etc. We got to see some seals even though seals aren’t really hanging around this time of year. Also, we stay in the harbor so no major waves or seasickness. At the end of the experience, you can pick and pay for a freshly caught lobster to take to the nearby restaurant and have it steamed.

Loved loved this tour. We learned a lot about the lobster industry, and enjoyed a "hands on" experience. Definitely recommend the tour. Rachel and Captain were entertaining too.

My husband had a wonderful time on this tour!! He wants to do it again! Crew was very nice & knowledgeable! They told you about trapping lobsters, the process, etc. very informative! Plus, while on the tour you get to do sight seeing!! We got to see a seal, the Portland Headlight lighthouse, and an old fort all while pulling lobster traps! After the tour you can buy a lobster at boat cost! Then take it in the bag they give you to the Portland Lobster Co restaurant just a few steps away to have it cooked.

So fun and informative and glad we did this for our time in Portland. The staff was super knowledgeable and we had a great time learning about how to catch lobster. Book early though so you can go on one of the catch boats instead of catch and release, which was our only option. Either way though you can take fresh caught lobster with you to cook and eat next door. Highly recommend!!
