“Great experience”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

It was a wonderful time we spent with Capt. Clive. The whole process of baiting, hauling in and measuring lobsters was fascinating. Capt. Clive took time to explain the lobster laws of Maine and how they much tougher there than anywhere in the country. His crew was great and answered all our questions. Having lived in New England all my life and loving lobster I never know what it involved to catch them and enjoy them. It was a wonderful experience for all ages and would love to do it again.

“A great day with Clive”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

I took my wife and 4 children (8,6,4,4) out on Clive's boat and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Clive and his shipmate were educational, friendly and allowed for great interaction with the amazing creatures. He explained the rules of lobster fishing, let us watch them measure, explained in creative ways the animals.

I would highly recommend anybody visiting Maine to stop by for a trip to learn about lobstering.

“Great lobster boat experience!”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Not only had a great time but they take their time to teach you about how they set traps and retrieve the lobsters and teach some information on the lobsters as well. Captain Clive is the real deal.

“Great Experience For All Ages!!”
Reviewed 31 July 2013 via mobile

A genuinely friendly and informative trip. Both Clive and his shipmate took time to explain all aspects of their work, some of our group help bate the traps and everyone got to band hold the catch.

We would highly recommend this trip (our group ranged in age from 6 to 46). It makes a pleasant change from the usual run of the mill tourist boat attractions, where you are just one of the crowd.

Thanks again for one of the highlights of our vacation!

“Entertaining and Educational!”
Reviewed 31 July 2013 via mobile

Captain Clive and his mate were excellent guides! They were very friendly and knowledgable. Because we were a small group, just our family, we were able to ask a lot of questions. The kids were able to band the lobsters too! All of us learned a lot. I highly recommend this tour!!
