We took the cruise out to the Nubble Lighthouse. We made reservations in advance and when we arrived, we learned that the day was too foggy. I figured that a lighthouse would be visible from the boat either way, and even though it wasn't ideal, I figured they would still take us out - why lose the business, right? They... More

It was a sunny afternoon, and we wanted to spend some of it on the water, so while we were wandering Perkins Cove we came across a signboard for a lighthouse cruise. The timing was right, so we bought two tickets. As an added bonus to a pleasant time on the water, we had a very nice tour guide who... More

We arrived to the lady at the outdoor desk to buy tickets. It was a very cool, windy day, and we arrived about 45 minutes early to be sure we got on the 12:00 cruise as I tried calling most of the morning and couldn't get through. The lady said she didn't think she could get us on the 12:00... More

Hello and thanks for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor. Having not been there at the time you came for your tickets and also having not spoken to the staff yet, it is difficult to address the situation having only one perspective, but here are some thoughts: You didn't mention which particular day you came -...

We did the lobster boat tour with a 4 year old and a 4 month old. The captain was very informative and the first mate was awesome at pointing things out and showing us the lobsters that came up in the lobster pots. The boat was clean and the views are amazing.

Loved our lobster tour with Alice and Tom. One of our favorite things from our 12 day vacation. So worth the money. We learned so much from the tour and enjoyed the boat ride on such a beautiful day! If we are ever back in the area, we would definitely do another tour with the. Great value!

We had a beautiful day for a cruise. The narrative of the shoreline was wonderful and easy to hear . The view of Nubble Lighthouse is beautiful. We even saw some seals! I highly recommend this cruise.

On a whim, we decided to go on a lobster boat cruise after seeing the sign at Perkin's Cove. We thought it might be interesting to watch them bring up the traps and to see what they did with the lobsters they caught. And it was interesting.....but it was also so much fun! The tour guide, wish we had gotten... More

We loved going through Perkins Cove out into the ocean along the coast. The tour is narrated all the way to the lighthouse. You get close to the island and around the back of the lighthouse. It's a nice sized boat that even has drinks and snacks to buy.

This is a short (less than 1 hour) cruise off the coast of Ogunquit to see the crew empty lobster traps.....or at least that's what we thought!! Turns out it was a hilarious, educational, relaxing tour of the rugged Maine coast too! The crew was great, especially to the youngsters, and very informative. We even got a geology lesson of...
