If you love to experience and learn while you are vacation, take this trip. Clive is a real deal lobsterman. We learned so much about conservation, habitat, and the life a lobsterman. Plus, you cannot beat the views in Boothbay Harbor. On a side note, Clive helped us arrange a later trip when our flight was cancelled and our luggage... More

I decided to take my boys on this tour as we have a big lobster fan in the family. I thought it would be a fun way to spend some time in Boothbay Harbor, north of where we usually stay in Portland. Captain Clive was engaging and brimming with knowledge about lobster. New respect for lobster men and their catch.... More

We took four small children out for a morning ride with Capt. Clive and his stern man Cage. It was perfect! Kids were allowed to put bands on the lobsters. It was very educational but also fun! Couldn't ask for two better guides. Perfect amount of time.

Clive and his first mate were very nice. They told us a great deal about " lobstahs". Slow drive around the bay, checking lobster traps. Anything you want to know about lobsters, just aske this guy. It was very cool hauling up the traps, loading the trap back up with fresh bait, and watching them drop off the back of... More

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.
