We did this tour on June 20th. Cpt. Clive was extremely helpful in coordinating and offering directions, He does a great job explaining all you need to know about lobster fishing. One of a kind and must do.

Went today with my 9 year old grandson and the experience was outstanding. You learn about the entire lobster process. From the lobster life cycle to the trapping process. We caught about 15 lobsters. Only 2 were keepers and one of those was a paper shell lobster that was not marketable. Capt Clive is having it for dinner.

My husband and I along with 4 grandchildren really enjoyed our trip with Captain Clive. It was a great learning experience for all of us. Felt like we have known him and his first mate forever. Would have loved for the trip to be longer.

We found it very easy to contact the captain and arrange for a trip that very afternoon. The boat arrived promptly at the scheduled time and place. Captain Clive was very informative and personal. We found his first, and only, mate to be quite pleasant and informative also. Captain Clive has a great deal of knowledge of the lobster industry,... More

I took my grandsons (9 and 15) on Capt Clive's boat. We thoroughly enjoyed Capt. Clive, his personality and his knowledge of lobster fishing. Boys loved the trip. Highly recommended to those who want to learn about lobstering and enjoy beautiful views of Bootbay from the sea. Bob

This was our first trip to Maine. Captain Clive and Cage were extremely knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the lobster fishing industry. The day was perfect and we had an absolute blast. Don't miss out on a fun adventure.

We boarded the "Sea Swallow early (about 8 am ) for a chance to experience the workings of a real lobster vessel. Capt. Clive and his first mate, Cage, took us into Boothbay Harbor where they began assembling the bait (salted herring) that would soon be hung in empty lobster pots. As the lines of pots were pulled in and... More

DO this boat trip when here. Excellent. Wife and I out today with Clive and mate on a perfect weather day. I am now lobster-smarter after wonderful trip and expert info from very knowledgeable Capt Farrin, a retired educator. Pulled and set traps, etc., etc. Money well-spent.
