We were a group of 8 with an 8 year old and a 10 year old along with 15 and 16 year old girls and everyone loved this experience. It lasted an hour and a half and honestly anything longer is kind of paying to work for the lobster boat. It was informative and cool as heck. I can’t say one bad thing about it. Book this excursion and work it into your visit to Portland Maine.

DO IT

Book ahead of time and just do it. Great time was had by all. There were 10 on board plus 3 staff.

Rain was forecast but did hold off for us which was nice but we’d made up minds to do it rain or shine.

Nice education on lobstering and lots of opportunity to try your hand at baiting, setting, and releasing traps.

Was sad that we had eaten a big breakfast so didn’t purchase a lobster to go.

Well worth the money, and got some sight seeing in as well. We saw some forts, light houses and islands.

After decades of coming to Portland, Kennebunk, and other areas along the southern coast of Maine, we booked a mid-day trip with Lucky Catch Cruises on a stunning late-June Thursday. I honestly cannot think of a better way to enjoy being on the water in Casco Bay - listening to Captain Tom and his crew educate us about lobsters, and the coastal fisheries, and the wonderful ecosystem literally a stone's throw from my family's home. Writing this a couple of hours after our trip, my face still hurts from smiling so much, my belly aches from laughing so much, my hands stink of herring (lobster bait!), and my lord am I hungry for a lobster roll. Do not miss out on Lucky Catch - get out with them and make that highlight of your time in Portland!!!

This was favorite thing in Portland. It was a fun and interesting way to learn about lobster fishing (which felt important given that it's Maine), and it was great to be out on the water and we saw lighthouses and seals too. The crew were friendly and knowledgeable and great about including everyone on the boat with the different components of checking and baiting the traps.
