Great tour to learn about Maine's delicacy, lobster! We learned about the traps, the process, the regulations, the boats. Clive and Cage answered all our questions and shared their experience in a fun yet educational way that led to a greater understanding of lobster.

Clive and Cage did a fabulous job teaching a bunch of bulldogs about lobster ! They were both very knowledgeable about the water, the marine life, and lobster regulations. They were very patient with our questions, picture taking. If you are looking for a way to get out on the water and learn about lobstering, you will spend time with... More

If you want a different experience with a local Maine lobsterman, this is the tour for you. Captain Clive and his crew were great and taught us so much about catching lobsters and lobsters themselves. This is a hands on tour where you are on Captain Clive's commercial boat and watch them pull in and send out traps, learn about... More

We had a great time lobstering with Clive and Cage, his assistant, this June. The experience taught us a lot about the lobstering profession, lobsters, traps, regulations, etc. We got some hands on experience during our trip. It doesn't feel like a fake tourist production, just that Clive welcomed you aboard his boat to share some of his vast knowledge... More

I always wanted to learn about how lobsters are caught and this was an excellent way to find out! Captain Clive was great! We went out for about 1.5 hrs and learned all about lobster fishing while he and his first mate, Cage, actually hauled up their lobster traps and got the lobsters. You can tell that Clive was a...
