Lucky Catch Cruises offers 1 1/2 hour lobstering excursions in Casco Bay, Maine. The tours depart from Long Wharf in Portland and operate from the first weekend of May through the last weekend of October. A typical lobster excursion involves pulling eight traps near scenery such as the Portland Headlight Lighthouse, Civil War Fort Gorges and the Seal Rocks. Lobsters can be purchased after the tour for a discounted price and brought to the restaurant next door for cooking. We limit the number of passengers on each boat, so please call ahead for reservations. All the best from Maine!

If you are visiting from an area without an ocean or just want to understand more about lobsters this is a great experience. Kids especially enjoy this. Being able to eat what you've caught just makes the experience that much better!

We were there in September so it was a bit cool, pants and sweatshirt. Summer months, shorts and t-shirt. They give you a lobster apron to wear so your clothes don't get wet.

We stay in the calmer waters of the bay. Sea sickeness is something our passenger hardly ever experience.
