Overview
More
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!

A fantastic way to spend two hours. Easy to book and easy to find. Captain Tom and two crew members for 12 people. Lots of interaction and education on all types of sea life encountered. Thanks for a trip highlight!

Our particular boat appeared to be lobster only but I know they had several boats. They are incredibly nice. I would call and inquire.
