Captain Jason was awesome, so informative, pleasant, and approachable. This tour was by far our favorite of all our stops. The small group of 6 made it perfect. Jason was full of ideas for the rest of vacation....a definite must do!

This is a excellent and exceptional cruise. Captain Jason is a lot of fun and informative. Six person cruise. Where else can you catch lobster and cook and eat on the boat. Well worth the money. Highly recommend.

Captain Jason's lobster cruise was excellent. You can't get a more authentic experience than a real lobsterman who picks you up in his own boat and answers all your questions while cruising the beautiful Maine waterways. He pulls lobster traps, teaches you which lobsters are...More
