An adventure to remember! Head offshore in search of whales while your guide educates you about the whales and other species of the Gulf of Maine.
Watch our experienced fisherman haul in lobster traps from the ocean floor as a professional naturalist describes everything and answers all your questions about lobster fishing and marine wildlife.
Once we haul in the traps, you will have an up close experience with the lobsters and any other critters we happen to catch in our traps! Don’t worry; all lobster claws will have rubber bands attached so everyone’s fingers will stay safe! Our tours are very kid-friendly, and we welcome young curious minds on board.
About half way through our cruise, we’ll stow all the lobster gear and head off to a small island to view seals basking on the rocks or swimming in the nearby water. We most often see harbor and grey seal species.
Our 56’ vessel has ample bench seating and an open bow for photography and wildlife viewing opportunities.
Binoculars and/or a long zoom lens are recommended for viewing wildlife such as seals and eagles.
Throughout the trip, we’ll be cruising in Frenchman Bay, providing beautiful views of Acadia National Park!
WARM & WATERPROOF LAYERS! It is much colder out on the open ocean, even on a hot summer day, and the ride is windy when the boat is underway.
