You know it's a good trip when your 6 year-old says "can we do this again next year?" before he gets out of the boat. Fabulous experience. Can't recommend highly enough. Maybe if the rating scale went to 11?

This trip is worth every penny and more. My family learned a ton about Lobsters and the Maine Lobster Fishery. Captain Clive and Cage are great people and answered every question we asked. The ride is wonderful and the view of the harbor is unbeatable. If you're in Boothbay or are going, call now and book your trip!!!

Didn't know what to expect but was very educational and active. Crew baited and pulled up over a dozen traps at 3 spots and found plenty if lobster. Excellent photo opps. Stayed in bay very calm waters. Just over an hour or so.

Captain Clive and Crew gave us a wonderful tour of the bay! We learned how they catch lobster and the history of lobster trapping in BoothBay Harbor. A must trip in the Harbor for those who want to learn about this industry! Captain Clive is a wealth of knowledge and has a love of this business! He made our trip... More

This opportunity is one of a kind. This is a working lobster boat. We spent 1.5 hours on the boat. The kids were allowed to help fill bait bags and put bands on the lobsters that were kept. We all learned so much about the lobster business and about conservation efforts. It is a can not miss event. My kids... More

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
