This is hands down the best tour in Portland. Kate-Lyn is such a joy, and she makes this a fun, interactive experience. Participants will do everything from pulling lobster and crabs from the traps, measuring the lobsters, banding the claws, reloading the trap with bait, and sliding the traps back into the ocean. Highly recommend this experience. The price is amazing for the experience that you get. If you are in Maine, do not miss this opportunity

When booking, I was under the impression that the tour would be learning about the lobster industry and just watching the workers do everything but that is far from the truth. The guides did an excellent job making sure that everyone had a chance to do every part of the process including but not limited to emptying the crabs and lobsters from the traps, banding the claws together, measuring the lobster, and setting up a new trap and pushing it back into the water. It was really fun and informational. Only suggestion to guests: they suggest bringing a drink or beer for the tour if you want. It is so hands on that there really is no need or really any time to sit and have a beverage. We went mid October at the end of the season so the traps didn’t have much in there but it didn’t take away from the demonstration. Highly recommend.

We took the Sunset Brews Cruise - a BYOB trip to see several lighthouses and scenic spots. Captain Than and Heather were fantastic. Heather made sure we all left with professional quality photos and gave us lots of fun facts about the sights in the harbor. This was one of our favorite things we did in Portland!
