September 7th 2020 last run of the season. It was a little rough but my wife and I had a great time. Captain and mate really knew how to do a great tour. We definitely will be back and maybe we'll get to do the whale tour next.

Wonderful experience for the kids and gorgeous scenery for the adults. Captain was super engaging. We saw seals, pulled up lobsters, and even got a fish. It was the highlight of the kids trip to Maine.

Amazing! Way better than I expected. We got to seethe Bush complex, so many seals, and catch some lobsters! Tom and Nathan were super funny and entertaining. It was my birthday and I guess my husband coordinated with them to have them embarrass me and have the entire boat sing happy birthday. Bets part, they offered to give us some lobsters that they caught to take home for my bday!

The captain of the boat had a great sense of humor. It was a cloudy day and he made the best of it. He was very knowledgeable about the area and made the lobster tour a lot of fun. I would bring my children back in a minute.

ok...so we had the horrible luck of the weather not cooperating with our trip - and even with that, the captain and his first mate MADE IT AMAZING!!! Our kids were just dying to be out on the water - so we were game for the trip even though a fog rolled in just before we left. But the crew -- the crew were ready to give the group a great tour regardless. They were funny, knowledgeable, engaged with the crowd - everyone on that boat was totally immersed in the experience. They pulled up lobsters and let the kids be a part of it -- they caught fish and included our son in the experience. They were just total professionals, making the best of a weather situation. Would highly recommend this tour -- its a great length of time for small kids, and super informative. We'll definitely be back for another tour with them next summer!
