We had a great time fishing for lobster and crab. It was a bit slow to get signed in and we were about 30 minutes late sailing. We were afraid we'd be seasick but it was really quite calm, even though there had just been a storm. The crew was pretty friendly but they all smoked like crazy so if you're sensitive to cigarrettes you might want to pass on this. Even though it was outdoors and on the water, I was constantly breathing in smoke. They really encourage you to purchase food on board. It was mostly things on a griddle...hamburgers, grilled cheese etc. Being on a special diet I couldn't have anything there so I brought my own. The water and sodas were cheap though and the rest of our party ate on the boat. We each got several turns hauling up the crab traps. In our group we got 3 lobsters (several more were too small and had to be thrown back) and a dozen or so crabs. The crew does ask for and somewhat pressure passengers for tips which was a bit uncomfortable. They also strongly encourage everyone to put money in a pool for whoever gets the largest lobster. Again, a little uncomfortable since we paid a fair price for the trip in the first place. All in all we had a blast and would do it again.
