Go Lobstering! Lobster Boat Tour Up Close and Personal

Two Fishermen On Board is Twice as Nice

One of the greatest Maine adventures you will experience during your vacation!  Step aboard the F/V Lady Esther with Captain Larry Knapp, a seasoned lobsterman.  As the engine turns over, and the lines are thrown, your adventure will start as this 42′  lobster boat pulls away from the dock.

As you idle through the harbor, Captain Bruce White will inform you about the equipment that will be used,  talk about the history of the industry and the changes that fisherman have encountered over the years.  As you pull alongside your first pot bouy, you will see how traps are hauled, lobsters are measured and banded, how to rebait the traps and set them back out to the ocean floor. With two experienced fisherman on board, questions are welcomed!

 Why we love it: Up close and personal experience of lobster fishing!
