An Authentic 5-Star Lobsterman Experience in New England

Fantastic Learning Experience

"Being from Iowa, we don't get a lot of exposure to lobsters, besides in the restaurants. We learned a lot about the lobster industry, and concerns about the lobster population around Maine. I would recommend this tour to anyone with any interest at all in it. Super knowledgeable crew, helpful and ready to answer any questions you have!"

"This was my first visit to the state of Maine and I was so excited about learning about lobsters. The trip with Rugosa Lobster Tours was definitely the best event of my trip. I learned all about lobsters, was able to hold a live one, and I have such an appreciation for the lobsterman/women who provide these delicious delicacies to our tables! Great trip. Highly recommend!"

A must-do lobster trip!!

"Captain Bob and the Lobster “Professor” John were super knowledgeable! Easy to get to, this lobster tour is not to be missed. We learned so much about Lobster (thought we already knew a lot!!), the local industry as well as the surrounding area. Traveling with a 9-year old, our son was very engaged throughout the 90-minute trip and enjoyed the hands-on experience. Thank you so much for a memorable trip out!!!"

Lobster Tour!

"Captain Bob and Jessi were phenomenal! The entire tour was educational and entertaining. We were so happy to return to Iowa and tell our friends and family all of the fun facts we learned. Would highly recommend! They even provided sea bands for anyone who potentially would get sick! Great boat and team!"
