Company was great to deal with and trip went very well. Skipper took lots of time around Seal Island. Also aboard was Bob Duchesne who is a renowned birder and naturalist. He was very giving of his expertise. We saw not only lots of puffins but also the famous red beaked tropicbird that visits this part of Maine every year.... More

We took the mailboat out to see the lighthouse on Isle au Haut. Doing a direct return on the next boat saved $17. Best view of the lighthouse is from the boat. It was on schedule and the crew was very helpful. Also parking on the street saved another $5.

Comfortable, efficient, scenic way to get to Isle Au Haut for a day trip. sitting on the upper deck if you can get one of the 11 seats is the best for views. be sure to bring a jacket as it gets quite breezy and nippy (even in late july) as the boat picks up speed. Be sure to ask... More

Having not had my phone call returned from Clive Farrin, who kept coming up on the internet as THE guy, we showed up for this lobster tour. Ok, we did haul a pot, it did have lobster, but I learned very little. Miss Lizzie holds 52 souls and was seaworthy, an upper deck for 11. No safety information was provided.... More

We took the ferry from Stonington to the Isle Au Haut. Our ride was smooth, staff was friendly in the ticket office and on the boat and we even enjoyed a stop to see a group of playful seals sunning themselves on a rock island. Highly recommend!

We rented a house on the water, kayaked in the bay, listened to the loons at sunset, collected shells on the beach and bought lobsters off the dock. The total Maine experience, right? Well here is one more activity to complete the Maine experience. Take the lobster boat trip with Isle au Haut boat serivces. You will learn all about... More

I took the 3:30 pm "Mink" ferry to Isle au Haut as a way to see the islands off the coast of Stonington. The Mink and Miss Lizzie are ferries in the "Mail Boat" fleet, a non-profit that preserves transportation and a lifestyle on the Isle. My trip stopped at the Town Landing, then a point to the south in... More

You can't go wrong taking the 45 min ferry ride to Isle au Haut and wandering around the island for either an hour and returning or staying and taking the 5:00 ferry back to Stonington. If I had the opportunity to go again I would take my bike and spend the whole afternoon. There is a road around the island,... More

Very well managed and run operation! The boat was immaculate, fresh paint, clean decks, and plenty of seating options. Take this short tour to learn about the lobster fishing industry, get some sun on your face and wind in your hair. We saw some seals, lighthouses, sea birds, and took lots of great pictures. The tour is very well narrated... More

Took the two hour harbor cruise, explaining about how they catch lobster and talking about the lobster industry in Stonington. The captain was very knowledgeable and described in detail everything that we saw. Very laid back, showed us a lobster trap with a lobster in it (they throw it back), explained how the lobster boats work, and also showed us... More
