About Rugosa Lobster Tours
This is a demonstration of lobster fishing and information about lobster biology, Maine lobster fisheries, commercial aspects of the fishery and last but not least, some local history. Fun for the whole family. The Rugosa is a real wooden lobster boat out on the Gulf of Maine and in terms of information shared by the tour guide, children must be at least 6 years. Very young children can be a distraction to the rest of the guests aboard the boat, enjoying the presentation. THIS YEAR BECAUSE OF THE COVID-19 CRISIS, WE WILL BE TAKING ONLY 10 PEOPLE PER TRIP FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING AND WILL USE ALL PRECAUTIONS TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE.

This was an awesome tour! Captain Bob and Mark were very informative and funny! I would recommend this tour to anyone that loves being on the water, curious about where they are vacationing or someone who’s scouting out Kennebunkport to live, excellent for families or couples.

This tour was clearly one of the best attractions we found in Kennebunkport. It was extremely educational, hands-on and fun. The owner of the boat is a great guy and engages with all of those on his tour. The opportunity to see what lobstermen do each day was enlightening and
