We took a 50-min. Lobstering trip and totally enjoyed every minute of it! It was only six people on a weekday morning and we received full attention from the very knowledgeable crew. We learned a lot about lobsters and lobstering industry in Main, saw many lobsters, crabs, and even a huge mola mola fish swimming right next to us! Fifty minutes for this trip was just right - you sure will not get bored!

I've been on several Finestkind cruises over the years including the coastal lighthouse tour, the cocktail cruise, and the daytime lobstering cruise and I like the small size of the tour boats, the friendliness of the crew and land staff, and the amount of sights included in the tours. All depart from Perkins Cove and advance reservations can be made. Pricing is very reasonable and customer service is outstanding. I've witnessed special attention to elderly passengers more than once.

My last excursion with Finestkind was the lobstering cruise, a hands-on experience where you get to see the captain haul his traps and learn about the lobstering industry in Maine. He teaches you how to determine whether the lobster is male or female. He illustrates how to gauge whether the lobster is legal in size or type. And finally, he gives you a tour of the coast en route to his traps. This tour company understands their customers!

When the tour is over, the drop-off is at the dock just below Barnacle Billy's. If you are hungry, you can step in for seafood or walk across the street to Oarweed's. Don't miss this charming spot on the Ogunquit seacoast.

We enjoyed a great boat trip to Nuble Light. The women that spoke during the ride was great and provided many interesting facts. She also was the bartender and was fun to watch. Highly recommended.

Our teens wanted to do the Lobster boat again! Third time and it was still a pleasure!! Trip is just long enough (50 minutes), tour is interesting, we always enjoy it! This time we saw Pres Bush and the Secret Service boat traveling in to go eat at Barnacle Billy's and the driver gave us a chance to watch them come in. Great little trip and I highly recommend it. It is a "must do" when you are in Perkins Cove or Ogunquit!!!!
