We decided to take the lighthouse cruise to Cape Neddick last minute. When we went to pay the lady she advised us we would go if there were at least 8 people. It turns out there was only 3 couples total but they still took us out. It was truly perfect! The weather was not too hot and it was... More

It was a nice boat ride on a beautiful day but somehow, we expected more history. Thought there would be info on lobstering and possibly who lives in some of the beautiful homes. We went around the lighthouse which can also be done from land. For all the great reviews, it was a disappointment. Not that informative.

Sorry the trip didn't meet your expectations - regarding history, we do give a fair amount of information on the coastline, and discuss all points of interest along the way - but we also feel that not every minute of the trip needs to be filled with talk and most folks appreciate some "quiet time" when they can just relax...

We took the cruise to see the Nebble Lighthouse! My son is 8 and it was also his first time on a boat. He loved it! It rides along the coastline and they tell you all about the history! We even got to see a Sunfish even though it looked alot like a shark! Lol

My wife and I went on the lobster cruise, very interesting to see how they trap them. Great boat, crew, very good trip.

We took the 90 minute cruise to the Nubble Light on a beautiful September day. Kathy, the tour guide, did a great job and I learned a lot about the area and about lobstering in Maine. However, I cannot give the cruise an excellent review because they throw bread to the seagulls right over the paying customers' heads! Not a... More

These boat trips are a nice way to learn about the areas and the aquatic life. Boats hold a small number of guests so you get plenty of attention. Reasonably priced with friendly staff. Full bar onboard🍺🍸

My family went out on the lobster tour and it was great! My four children loved it and Pat kept us very entertained. She was so knowledgeable and funny and really made it fun for us! So happy we went!

We sailed to the Nubble Lighthouse on Finest Kind over Labor Day weekend. I wish I remember our guide's name (I think it might have been Bill) was very knowledgeable about the area and the ocean. We learned so much about lobstering! We were lucky enough to book our cruise and depart all within 10 minutes of arrival in Perkin's... More

This is the third year in a row we have taken the Nubble Lighthouse cruise. We love it every time. The bits of history from the guide are so interesting. If you enjoy being out on the water, this is a great way to spend a few hours in the afternoon. It's a bit pricey, but still, fun and relaxing.... More

The lobster cruise is one hour. First, there is a short ride along the shore with some highlights of the area, then they will haul 3 to 4 traps up. They will show you the lobsters caught and explain various details about what they keep, throw back and why. You only have an hour and this is not an in... More
