Great little tour around the harbor to Egg Rock Lighthouse and to see a lobster trap get pulled up. We saw porpoises and seals on Egg Rock. Bring a fleece and binoculars if you have them. You can bring beer and wine too which we...More

It was a nice boat ride. It was hard to hear the speaker when sitting in the back of the boat. Learned some new things about lobsters.

Really enjoyed the ride through the harbor. Smaller boat means less people making the ride more personable. Learn about the area seals and much about lobsters! Second time I have been on the Lulu!!

A great way to learn about the lobster trade in Maine. We got to see seals and a porpoise during our cruise. It is really cold on the water so I definitely recommend a warm jacket.

My family and I enjoyed the experience aboard the Lulu Lobster Boat. The captain and mate were very informative and really did their best to show us all of the landscape and wildlife around the harbor.

I viewed the ad for the boat tour on this site and family vacation critic. The ad on fvc is very misleading and did not fulfill its claims. My children, husband and I were extremely disappointed and quite bored. The captain, Tony, was very bland...More

I booked the 1:00 tour. It was great because it was less crowded than the morning or sunset tours. I happened to like the intimate experience.
