If you are looking for something a little different I highly suggest you take this lobster tour. Capt Duffy and Dave did an outstanding job. If you have any interest in lobster fishing this is a must do tour.

There is a public lot right in town (w/bathrooms), don’t remember how much but it wasn’t absorbent amount. The walk from lot in town to boat dock was about 4 min.
