The tour could be different each time, the ocean is alive with creatures, so do not hesitate to take the tour again and again on multiple vacations to Maine. One never knows what lies in the deep. The guests before us saw a whale, porpoises,...More

Took the cruise as part of a tour. They do an excellent job explaining everything about being a lobsterman and showing the traps! We learned so much!! These lobstermen are most definitely underpaid! But this is entertaining and informative! Well worth the time and money!!
