As summer residents, we have many houseguests, and they all rank Clive's Lobstering Cruise among their best Boothbay Harbor adventures. Capt Clive is very knowledgable, and generous with information about lobster and the lobstering industry. FirstMate Cage is also devoted to educating guests with some hands-on experiences as well. And afterward, our lobster suppers sometimes sound like a biology class... More

Clive and his assistant Cage were incredible! The tour and experience were the highlight of our vacation to New England. Take the time, spend time with Clive and learn about the lobster industry in Maine. He is so knowledgable on the biology and works with the local aquarium that you will learn so very much. Thank you both for such... More

Our little family went out with Capt. Clive and his helper, Cage, Memorial Day Weekend. What an adventure! We got the full experience and education of what it takes to be a lobsterman in Maine! We learned so much about the lobster itself, the laws and regulations regarding the size of the catch, and even a little history of the... More

Capt. Clive couldn't take me out on a lobster boat tour on April 26th, too early for tours to begin. But I was able to ride with him while he participated in the Lobster Trap Race during the Boothbay Harbor Fisherman's Festival. Capt Clive went out of his way to please a stranger from Wisconsin. He made me feel like... More

We are glad we went with Captain clive because it was not only a fun and exciting trip, it was educational and informative as well. There are no bells and whistles, what you see is what you get. A true glimpse into the life of... More

Went on the tour with the kids. It was a fantastic experience. We watched Clive and John bring up the traps. Gave us some great education on lobster and how they are not over fished, what grows back on a lobster and what they eat. Along the way you get great views of the mainland. I would recommend this to... More

It was a wonderful time we spent with Capt. Clive. The whole process of baiting, hauling in and measuring lobsters was fascinating. Capt. Clive took time to explain the lobster laws of Maine and how they much tougher there than anywhere in the country. His crew was great and answered all our questions. Having lived in New England all my... More

I took my wife and 4 children (8,6,4,4) out on Clive's boat and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Clive and his shipmate were educational, friendly and allowed for great interaction with the amazing creatures. He explained the rules of lobster fishing, let us watch them measure, explained in creative ways the animals. I would highly recommend anybody visiting Maine to stop... More

Not only had a great time but they take their time to teach you about how they set traps and retrieve the lobsters and teach some information on the lobsters as well. Captain Clive is the real deal.
