Do this tour, you will enjoy it very much. The tour on the boat is guided and the captain explained everything. On the island, you can walk around, there are toys for kids too. And the traditional lobster is the best. Everybody was really nice. We would do this again. Our highlight in Boothbay Harbor!!!

(Great scenery) Once on the Island you can explore or relax and inhale the fresh salt air. When you hear the horn you know that your lobster, corn-on-the-cob... More

This was a great day. The harbor tour was very informative and fun. Everyone on the island was friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent and plenty of it. I would do this again in a heartbeat.
