Lucky Catch Cruises

Our excursion will guide you through the daily routines of a Maine lobsterman while enjoying close-up views of historic lighthouses, civil war forts, and seals. During the 80-90 minute cruise, we pull traps at several scenic locations around the bay and discuss lobster habits, conservation efforts, and lobster biology.

About Us

Aprons and gloves are available to brave seamen who wish to join the fun as we bait, set, band, and measure the catch.

Whether you participate or sit back and relax you have the option to purchase lobsters for wholesale “boat price” when the work is complete.

Lobstering tours start the first weekend of May and run through the last weekend of October.

Lucky Catch does not have parking facilities, but there are lots, garages, and meters nearby. Parking in the Old Port can be difficult in the summer so please allow extra time to park before your cruise.
