Marshall Dodge’s classic humor recordings of “Bert & I” created a soundtrack to Maine lobstermen that is as accurate – and funny – today, as it was 60 years ago. If you’ve ever listened to “The Bluebird” and imagined yourself at the helm of a lobster boat, then it’s time to come to Maine. Lobster boat tours are a unique way to experience lobstering first-hand and learn how lobster fishermen preserve this vital industry.
A Family-friendly Excursion
Guests can pull up traps, and learn how lobstermen decide whether a lobster is good for dinner or needs to enjoy more time at the bottom of the sea. Kids delight in all the other creatures pulled from traps, too, like starfish and crabs.
You can often buy your catch and cook the freshest lobster imaginable or have a restaurant prepare it for you.
Tours go past lighthouses and other landmarks and the ocean’s mammals, like porpoises, seals and whales, can be seen.
You can have a lobster tour on a sail boat, traditional Downeast lobster boat or even ships with see-through floors!
