A rainy morning cleared off to a gorgeous sunny, fall, afternoon. We boarded the Pamela D after being picked up in their van right on Main Street as described. A delightful ride about 5 miles to the harbor. Let the adventure and education begin... the Captain and his helper both clearly love and have lived in Maine for decades. Their collective knowledge of the animals, sea life, islands, homes and history held our attention for the entire trip. Pull in a real lobster trap and examine it's contents and you get a taste of Maine that is well worth the visit.

Being a boater and water lover I've experienced all kinds of charters throughout North America. I rarely give five stars to anything but had to for this trip. Great boat, great people and a fun trip at a fair price. Best of all its a small group so you can hear, see and ask questions. We did the "Lobster Demo and Wildlife Tour" and saw seals, osprey, cormorants and of course LOBSTERS in the trap. Best of all some of us got a quick peek at a HARBOR PORPOISE. Capt and 1st mate were well versed on the area and offered a wonderful tour. You will not be disappointed.

Thank you Bob for joining us on our cruise and for the nice review! We love introducing people to the area and talking about lobsters. Lobstering is a way of life here in Maine. Our mission is to educate people about the industry, lifestyle, biology etc when it comes to the Maine coast. Thanks! Peter

Thoroughly enjoyed our adventure yesterday with Seacoast Tours. We're staycationing this summer, doing all the local touristy things close to home, and we hadn't been to Eagle Island yet. Seacoast Tours makes it easy with a pickup by van intown where there's lots of available parking. Laura was very personable. friendly and accommodating as both our van driver and our First Mate on board the boat. Captain Peter shared lots of great information on the way out to the island, and even gave us the rare opportunity to see an osprey nest up close (but at a safe distance for us and the birds). You rarely see them nest at eye level so I had never seen a parent & baby osprey in a nest so close to us! Highly recommend this excursion, one of the most enjoyable we've had locally!

Took the tour to Eagle Island. From the shuttle pick up at LL Beans everything was perfect. Staff was wonderful. Boat was comfortable and clean. Saw seals and porpoises on the ride over. Perry's house on Eagle Island was fascinating. Had time to explore the island before returning to Freeport. It was a trip that had nature, beautiful scenery and history all rolled into one. A trip not to be missed.

My wife, daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter and I spent a great day at the lobster boat races with Captain Peter Milholland and first mate, Laura of Seacoast Tours. They could not have been more welcoming and accommodative. It was a most wonderful day. We all highly recommend Seacoast Tours to anyone looking for a fun time on the water near Freeport, Maine.
