We had a great time with Captain Clive and Cage. They were friendly and ready to answer all the questions we had.

We wanted to learn about lobstering, and going out with Capt. Clive and Cage was a great way to do it. We spent an hour and a half on the water while they pulled several lines of traps--15 traps total, I believe. As they pulled the lobsters they talked to us about what they do day in and day out,...

My step-daughter's family and I spent a roughly 90 minutes yesterday with Captain Clive Ferrin (207-380-7677) and his sternman Cage, and I can't imagine a better introduction to Maine lobstering. With previous house guests (my husband and I are Boothbay Harbor summer residents), we've tried two other local "lobster tours" -- Captain Clive's is undoubtedly the best of the bunch.... More

Spent a very pleasant and informative couple of hours with Captain Clive and his First Mate, Cage watching them check their lobster pots. They explained all about the lobster industry in the area and showed us so many interesting things about the lobsters. It is a working boat and you can see first hand how lobsters are harvested. It gave... More

This experience was tops on our list of our vacation high points! Very hands on & personal. We literally touched the lobsters & learned all about their life cycles & the life of a lobster fisherman. It's a must do for your bucket list!

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

This was my wife and my first trip to Maine. We wanted to go out on a real live Lobster boat. I asked around and Clive was recommended to us. Well I can tell you that it was a blast! The best thing we have done so far. Clive and his deck hand, Cage were just awesome. They explained the... 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
