Fun, interactive way to learn about the lobstering industry, and how the lobstermen and traps work. Prepare to be involved! But that is part of the fun.
The lobsters we caught we then got to take to a nearby restaurant to be cooked up for dinner - best lobster we had all trip and the prices were very reasonable.
Highly recommend!

Great experience. Boat was not crowded. Crew was nice, knowledgeable, and helpful. Got to bait a lobster trap, band the claws, and release the traps back into the water. Great info provided on the harbor history and attractions.

This was one of the coolest things we have ever done. Our family of 4 (4 and 6 y.o) had so much fun and learned a ton!

Kids (and adults!) got to bait the lobster traps and drop them in. Our trip ended up getting about 4 or 5 lobsters. We learned about how to tell the difference between male and female lobsters, and some of the rules and regulations on keeping them.

Captain Tom and the crew were engaging and helpful. We were also able to see tons of seals :)

After- you can buy the lobsters you caught (or additional ones) at boat prices, and then bring them to Portland Lobster Co to be cooked up. So awesome to see the process from start to finish. Fun for all of us

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.
