We took the "Cocktail Cruise" and the title is somewhat deceiving. Optional cocktails are an extra charge, but reasonably priced for the area. The ride was a bit choppy, but that was just Mother Nature vs. a relatively small boat. If you have motion-sickness, you might want to have a Dramamine! Overall a reasonably priced trip with great narration.

We took an evening cocktail cruise with Finest Kind and enjoyed the view, service, and experience overall. We were so impressed with the service on board, with staff coming around taking drink orders regularly. The views along the coast were beautiful and the seating on board provided for a wonderful experience no matter where you sit.

The price was $28.00 to cruise around the nubble light house; enjoyable but pricey. I ordered a rum punch that was not included in the price and it was not very good; basically all juice. Fellow passengers overheard us discussing the rum punch & they had also ordered the punch & we're not satisfied either with their beverage.

Went on a sunrise cruise on a beautiful morning in July. It was so relaxing. We saw a lot of seals but also learned about local landmarks, lobsters and the area. A bonus we had delicious muffins and coffee. It was a wonderful way to start the day. Highly recommend.

My husband, his father, and I took a cocktail cruise in the middle of July 2016. The tour was very informative, and the boat was spotless. My one critique is that Bill, the person telling us about what we were seeing, was also the bartender. When he was serving us, he couldn't say anything so there was a lot of... More

Hi and thanks so much for cruising with us, we appreciate your business and also the time taken to write a review. Just to clarify, the trip is not designed to have every minute narrated by the crew - we like to leave some time for folks to chat amongst themselves and enjoy some quiet time. We hope to see...

The entire family enjoyed this lobster boat cruise. We all learned a lot and the kids especially liked seeing the lobsters up close.

Fun, informative little cruise! We pulled into Perkins Cove at about 9:15am 7/2/16 to a nearly parking lot. But the time we got our parking and cruise tickets and I walked back from the public restroom in time for boarding, the lot was FULL! Crazy good timing. The cruise was good and the weather was perfect. Perking cove was super... More

We took the 50 minute lobster boat tour with Captain Tom. We learned a lot about lobsters and lobstering, and even hauled in a few keepers. You can even buy the catch back at the dock for $6/lb. Highly recommend this activity for families with young kids - we loved it.

We took the lobster boat cruise - 50 minute cruise. The Captain was great and hauled about 3-4 lobster pots, all containing lobster and 1 sea urchin. Just being out on the boat and enjoying the views was fantastic. Great little dock area. The dock area required paid parking. 2 Hour parking, if I recall correctly, cost $7. Well worth... More

My boyfriend and I went up to Ogunquit for the first time and after eating at Barnacle Billy's we happened upon the Finestkind Cocktail Cruise. We decided to take it (because why not?) and were not disappointed! Their beer is phenomenal. The storytelling on the sunset cocktail cruise was a close second to the beer! We loved hearing about the... More
