What a great experience running the lobster traps and then having a great lobster dinner on the boat. They have a lunch cruise and a dinner cruise and they get a 5 Star rating from me.

Captain Jason was great and very interesting. We learned how lobster fishermen fish for lobster and finished with a fresh lobster dinner on board. Fun trip.
