Join us on gorgeous Casco Bay for a Lobster Harvesting Tour you won’t forget! During the first part of the two hour tour, Captain Jay McGowen will explain the history of lobstering as he navigates toward his traps. Then he will demonstrate how a trap is lifted from the ocean floor and opened to collect the lobsters inside. The basic anatomy of the lobster is next, along with how the trap works. You’ll be able to get a close look at the sea life that comes up in the trap, which may include sea urchins, starfish, and crabs.



Once the traps have been pulled, we’ll change gears and look for seals. Often we find them basking in the sun on some ledges off of a larger island. We can get pretty close, so you’ll be able to take great pictures!


While the Let’s Go Lobstering Tour is the tour we run most often, there are several other options. Sightseeing, Sunset Cruises, trips to Admiral Peary’s Eagle Island, picnicking tours to various islands in Casco Bay, and charters for the Lobster Boat Races are just some of the options. Private charters are available as well.
