We spent a beautiful Fall afternoon cruising the harbor, learning about lobstering and eating some delicious lobster and blueberry pie. Captain Jason is knowledgeable and entertaining and I would do this trip again...highly recommend!!
Husband and I enjoyed this tour so much! Jason was fun and very knowledgeable. We took a bottle of wine to enjoy with our lunch. It was really windy so he found a place to anchor in front of a waterfall. Doesn't get much fresher...More

We had the best time with Jason and a few other great folks in September! This is the type of tour you can't find anymore. A personal tour from a local who knows what he is talking about. Jason is down to earth, funny and...More
Highly recommend this cruise with Captain Jason. Seeing Jason pull up the lobster traps and talk about the Lobster Fishing politics with the locals was a great experience. The lobster was so fresh and even if you don’t know how to crack a lobster (guilty)...More

Best 3 hours ever spent on the water. Captain Jason is extremely personable and very fun to talk to. Taught us a lot about the lobster business and the fresh lobster lunch on Thoenes boat was incredible 🤙🏼🤙🏼🤙🏼
Jason was an excellent host/captain/chef. Not only did he answer all of our questions and let us wander around his boat but also was full of stories and local anecdotes. He even gave us some tips on things to see and places to eat that...More

And....here's the answer: Everyone who responded is correct. I am just me, and my boat, and my traps, and you! I know in this day and age everyone wants to book online, and pay that way too and have email confirmation and a backup email to confirm the first email.
I call everyone back who calls me. It is always between 8am and 9am, and sometimes between 2pm and 4pm. I call the first person first, and the last person last. My biggest obstacle, and I think it is the one that has lead to these questions here on TripAdvisor is....nobody answers their phone.
So, the long and short of it is, call my number, leave a message. I will call you back- I promise. I have never not done that. If you don't answer your phone, the next person might get your spot!
I guess while we're at it, a few other questions in this thread... Will it be too cold? Too wavy? Too rainy?
Only you can answer that.
I love TripAdvisor, I think it's a really great resource for travelers- and I am a traveler. If you've read this far you already know you are in.

I asked Captain Jason what happens if the weather is bad. He says he does not go out in bad weather and works to reschedule people as best he can. Call the number on his website and leave a message and he will call you back... More
