I read some of the negative reviews and vaguely see where the poster(s) may be coming from. We took our family of 6 with young kids on this trip and we all had a great time, despite the fog, rain, and crowded boat. There is plenty of room for everyone to drop a line in, especially if you want to... More

The only thing I do less than writing on-line reviews is FISHING. I booked the trip to spend the day with my son who loves to fish. When the captain caught a fish merely demonstrating the reel, I knew we were in for a great day! We took home our limit and a couple of lobster too. Our only regret... More

My husband and 8-year-old son took this trip this morning. My husband is kind of a deep sea fishing snob and he absolutely loved it! He was amazed at the energy the owners had and thought it was a solid and safe operation. They caught a ton of fish and came back with two lobsters as well. A lot of... More

Seas were calm and the weather was perfect for fishing. Arrive at 7.30am as requested and no one was there yet to help us find parking. Check in was easy but I could tell it was going to be a full boat. Web site said a maximum of 30 people. They ended up letting 42 people on and we were... More

Just came off a tour with Vagabond (also known as Acadia Deep Sea Fishing) with our extended family of 9 and everyone had a fantastic time. I must admit that I was hesitant to go given a few of the bad reviews I read about the company. However, the criticisms written in prior reviews just did not hold up and... More

Tried this tour with friends based on the reviews and was very pleased. There were close to 30 on the trip and it was a good mix of adults, families, first timers and returning. The crew was wonderful and explained everthing in advance and during the trip. They were great with the kids and those who were a little sea... More

Took this trip with friends. This was well worth it. We not only got great picturesque views, opportunity to fish, but take home our catch, which was cut into fillet by the crew Charlie and Barbara. We received an education by the crew member Barbara who was a wealth of information about lobstering. We watched the crew bring in their... More

Nice crew. Very patient. Great with younger kids. Not a rush job. Caught a lot of little stuff- no huge fish. But nobody got skunked.
