This tour is fabulous!! You get an informative lecture on all aspects of the lobster, in a fun and interactive manner. We held lobsters, crabs, starfish, drove the boat, hauled in the buoys....and had a fresh, delicious lobster meal!!

Two days ago we spent the afternoon with Mark & Cody and had a fabulous time. They are both very friendly and entertaining and look after their ``guests`` very well. We learned a lot about the fishing industry, how fishing areas are established, conservation and all the many transformer parts of lobsters and crabs. These 4th generation fishermen are the real thing. Hauled up lobster traps, manoeuvered the boat, enjoyed the education and the stories, saw an albino lobster and met ``Larry` which was fun. The afternoon ended with a delicious lobster meal anchored off shore, the waves gently rocking the boat. Highly recommended for all - you are not too young nor too old for this adventure. Thanks Mark & Cody.

We just returned from the morning (10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.) lobster fishing trip. Both my son (10) and I enjoyed ourselves so much.

Mark and Cody are wonderful hosts and shared their fishing experiences with us.

We pulled up the lobster & crab traps and learned how to fish for lobster. We learned so much about lobsters (1 lb lobsters are approx. 8 years old!!). Wonderful time, would definately recommend this excursion!

This charter is a great thing to do. Captain's Mark and Cody were friendly, conscientious and knowledgable. We learned so much about fishing for crab and lobster and blue fin tuna. We actually brought in the traps and got to hold a crab and a lobster. Children would enjoy this trip. The lobster meal was delicious. Highly recommended.
