We all know and love Maine lobster, but the Rugosa Lobster Tours in Kennebunkport offers a rare, hands-on experience of the state’s staple. Hop aboard a classic wooden lobster boat and sail through the scenic Kennebunk River waterfront and coastline. In this authentic, salty-aired setting, you’ll learn about these creatures that have become the face of Maine seafood, the men and women who get these delicious delicacies from the sea to our table, how to haul a lobster trap and the (optional) handling of a live lobster! This top-rated tour will leave you with a better understanding of the lobster industry so vital to Maine (and potentially a whetted appetite).


  • A jacket or sweatshirt (even when it’s warm, it can be cool on the water)
  • Hat, sunglasses and sunscreen (part of the seating area is shaded, but it may be a good idea to be prepared!)
  • A snack or beverage if desired (no food is served on board and glass containers are discouraged)
