Also, commentary about the area, including Walker's Point, summer home of the 41st President George Bush and his wife Barbara.

The tour was 1 1/2 hours and we were all able to touch and hold a live lobster! My kids put elastics around the claws!

The tour was really great. It was interesting and informative, with 2 great men that seem to love their work. Learned many things about lobsters. Great trip on the ocean too. I was with a 10 years old boy and he enjoyed as much as I did.

Capt. Bob and his crew explain and demonstrate everything about lobstering. They give children a hands on experience that's unforgetable

We took this tour last week and we had a great time!!! It was very informative and the captain was very friendly.

Excellent tour! It was a beautiful day for a boat ride and to be out on the ocean. We had a great time learning about the whole lobster industry and the biology of lobsters. They were very funny and informative.

This tour was perfect for my 11-yr old to learn about lobsters! Being from Kansas, she has had VERY little experience with this great American treasure for both the ecology and the economy. Captain Bob and his crew did a great job!
