We went on a great trip, caught our limit of pollack for the boat, caught some cod but no keepers (raised the limit to 21 inches this year from 19) so close on a few of them. A few other fish. Charlie and the Captain are low key, no stress, pragmatic folks. They work hard and are a wealth of... More

I am a trip leader from an boys overnight camp in Maine. Every summer we take a multi-day camping trip to Acadia with 12-15 kids. The Vagabond and her crew has always been happy to have us. The fishing is often one of the highlights of the trip that the kids talk about for the rest of the summer. Of... More

Agreed: smoking Captain, crowded, not informative or entertaining during the times fish werent biting (pretty much all of the 5 hr), inattentive to those seasick, etc. Several of us voiced being ready to head in after 4 hours. The crew (2) was uninterrested. We checked what seemed way too many lobster traps based on the number of ill passengers and... More

I have been going on the vagabond for seven years and have never been disappointed. The crew is knowkedgable and helpful. They work hard to ensure each passenger has a great experience. I have been taking my children the past several years and they love it. Not only is the vagabond a fishing trip, they cruise along the shores of... More

My husband and I were not impressed with this trip. The boat was uncomfortably overcrowded. The crew and passengers were allowed to smoke anywhere on the boat. We hate the smell of smoke, and it was impossible to get away from it. We didn't go out on the ocean to smell cigarettes for three hours. My husband's line got a... More

We did a private family charter for a memorial service. The captian and his crew were incredible! We had a number of special requests that were all accommodated. After the serious business was taken care of, the Capt. and crew assisted with the fishing and fun. The most fun was taking part in the fisherman experience......filleting the catch, pulling the...

I think that my husband and I were the only people out of 26 or so that did not catch any fish, but we still had a really great time, based largely on the lobster experience part of the trip. The captain takes you out about an hour's trip to the fishing area. You probably spend about an hour to... More

Leaing out of Southwest Harbor, right next to Biel's Lobster, this was a nice trip that I would recommend. I knew ahead of time the type of fish we would catch, and we got mostly pollock, and mackeral, and I caught 1 cod. The fish were not that big, the cod was maybe 3 pounds, the rest were the size...
