Experience life on a real lobster boat!

Come check out the only Lobster Boat tour in Bar Harbor hosted on a traditional Downeast-style lobster boat.

This tour includes:
- Lobster boat ride
- Services of an experienced captain
- Lobster catching in action
- Lots of fun facts and lobster lore
- Great photo opportunities!

Set out on a fun lobster boat and sample a day in the life of a Maine lobsterman! Watch the captain haul in lobster traps and listen to interesting explanations about lobster fishing, seals, and other marine life in Maine.

We'll go through Frenchman Bay, viewing the different privately-owned islands close-up as sea birds and bald eagles soar above in their natural environment. We'll also go by Egg Rock Lighthouse, a favorite among visitors.

Your captain will fill you in on local history and folklore, telling you stories about the area--you decide if it's fact or fiction! Hear about the Flying Dutchman of Maine, the curse of the Saco River, the night during World War II when a German U-Boat landed two spies on Hancock Point, and many others!

- Warm clothing is important. Although the weather is normally mild, sea breezes are common and can be cool. We suggest that you bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, a camera, binoculars, and a snack and/or lunch (complimentary soft drinks, iced tea, and bottled water are offered).
- This is not a private tour. The boat holds approximately 30 people.
- You won't need to take a taxi to the starting location of this tour, but you will need to walk there. It's about a 5-minute walk. Full instructions/directions will be on your voucher.
