This was a great tour that I read about here on TA. I'm glad to report that the positive reviews were accurate, The tour is really informative and everything is done to make you happy and comfortable. The use of binoculars to see the seals and the availability of blankets in case you forget to bring along an extra layer... More

Have been on a few scenic boat tours but this was the real deal. The Captain explained that Maine's lobster population is thriving because of its self policing. You learn how a lobster trap works and why it is constructed the way it is today compared to the past. I now know how to tell a male lobster from a... More

Do you know how to tell a male lobster from a female? Do you know why Maine's lobster population is thriving? Do you know how a lobster trap works? Lulu's lobster boat is a very fun and informative trip. They give out seasickness bands and almost no one ever gets sick. First, you will journey to the lighthouse. We were... More

Capt. John was fantastic! Would do again in a heartbeat! He's got a great sense of humor and was educational. Loved every minute. We don't stay stationary long, but this tour was fantastic. We saw seals, harbor porpoise, and an eagle, plus the lobsters. Totally loved it. Oh, and be sure to get there 30 mins before tour starts to... More

This is a good tour--educational & nice tour of the harbor, thanks to the entertaining teaching style of the captain. If you're looking for a fancy tour of the harbor, you should probably look elsewhere. This is a meat-and-potatoes "What's this lobster fishing/farming all about?" tour. If you want to know, take this tour. It is not the easiest place... More

Captain is very well spoken and educated. It was informative. My 4 year old enjoyed the seals and lobsters, but a bit bored. Not sure it is the best attraction for young ones. My teenagers enjoyed it because they "got" the captain's dry sense of humor. We learned a lot about lobstering and Maine's role in the industry.

Overall, we enjoyed this tour. The Captain is incredibly knowledgable and it seems like he knows everything you could possibly know about lobsters. Also, his ability to spot a bald eagle - initially from somewhat far away - was impressive. That said - a few things to know. We arrived/checked in at about 4:55 for a 5:00 cruise. Yes that's...

I am most disappointed in this review. But I do thank the reviewer for her comments as it gives me an opportunity to explain our procedures and the reason we have them in place. I do my very best to provide a quality tour and experience for all my passengers. When advance reservations are made (as in this case), the... More

This is a famous attraction, but i found it just ok. The guy really does know everything about lobster fishing, and it was a nice ride out past the harbor to explore how lobsters are caught, etc. The kids liked touching the lobster and i learned about about why Maine still has so many lobsters left. but this is not...
