There was a family with a young girl (about 6 or so) and the entire trip held her fascination, too. The boat was amazingly clean for a working lobster boat, too. The... More

We had a blast with Mark and Cody, and they seemed to be just as excited as we were. They were informative, fun and made the trip well worth the money and time.
