Cruise by surrounding lighthouses, yachts, windjammers and islands while watching for seals and other wildlife. Help the Captain haul a lobster trap and check for critters. Touch tank on board with an array of sea life. A wonderful, safe way to see the harbor, relax and learn about Maine's beloved lobster. We offer One-Hour lobstering and lighthouse cruises, 1.5-Hour Eco-Tours and a special 3-Hour Sunday Morning Lighthouse Cruise. Beer, Wine and soft drinks available on board. Owned and operated by Captain Dominic and Liz Gioia, Native Mainers and Camden locals.

The boat ride was the perfect amount of time with just the right amount of talking. The light houses we stopped by were beautiful and the guide was very informative. Getting to hold the lobsters and throw back the small ones was also cool.
