Great afternoon with Captain Bob, the best and most informative lobster cruise. We thought we were educated about lobster , now we have our PhD in everything lobster. We live in Maine and this was terrific.

After growing up on the Atlantic coast, I thought I knew a lot about most marine life. Captain and crew of the Rugosa couldn't have been nicer and were very informative, and I learned far more than I expected to about lobsters and labster harvesting, the lobster fishery on the Maine coast, etc. I highly recommend this excursion for a...

We went with our family, two boys ages 10 & 7, and a 2 year old girl. We all loved it. The tour was very informative and interactive. The guides were friendly and intentionally involved the kids, having them participate in catching and banding the lobsters. Would definitely recommend, this will be a trip highlight for us.

Very educational but also very enjoyable. Definitely hands on if you want it to be. One of the best adventures of our vacation. Captain Bob and crew are very knowledgeable, present information in a fun but informative way. Great with the kids on board.

We're very happy that you and your children enjoyed our little lobster adventure, Tina. Your group was delightful to have aboard. There is nothing better for us than to share a few wonders of the ocean with young enquiring minds Hope to see you again sometime. More

Smashing trip up the river and Coast. Captain Bob and his crew really make lobster handling fun. Good for kids and adults. You learn a lot! The trip took about 90 minutes and you get off wishing it was longer.

We had the most fun on this lobster tour and learned so very much. Both Captain Bob and his helper were so knowledgeable about everything lobster. WE got to band some and hold some and learn about how they catch them and the lobster traps. It was very good and I would recommend it to anyone. It was inexpensive and... More

I loved this tour! Getting to spend time out on the boat and learn all about lobsters was a great way to spend a sunny morning in Kennebunkport. Captain Bob was an excellent guide.

From the moment our family party of 11 stepped on the boat I knew we were in for a good time. Captain Bob and his deckhand were courteous, knowledgeable and attentive to everyone's needs. The trip was the perfect amount of time, around 1.5 hours. Not too short, not too long. Even our 3 year old was never bored. Sea... More
