Rave TripAdvisor Reviews

“My parents, native New Englanders, had somehow never done anything like this before and they absolutely loved it! The crew was super friendly, engaging, funny, and really made this tour one of the best I’ve been on. We learned all about lobstering, got to hold and rubber band some lobsters, and it was BYOB! While I wouldn’t do many tours twice, I will certainly do this again when we’re in the area!”

“Captain Bob and his mate, Alan (sorry of the spelling is wrong) were great hosts. They are well organized, the boat is comfortable and the whole trip is very laid back. They did an excellent job of informing us about the lobster fishing industry; and we now know more about the sex lives of lobsters than we thought we ever would. We highly recommend this tour for non-Maine natives.”

“There were four of us gals that took the Rugosa Lobster Tour and we all decided it was the highlight of our trip to Maine! The captain and deckhand were very knowledgeable and entertaining. We have done several excursions in the past and all voted this one was the best. It was a perfect fall day out on the boat and we enjoyed it immensely!”
