Great tour to learn about Maine's delicacy, lobster! We learned about the traps, the process, the regulations, the boats. Clive and Cage answered all our questions and shared their experience in a fun yet educational way that led to a greater understanding of lobster.

Just dress for the weather, bring a light jacket in case it gets windy. It's probably cool at that time of the year.
How far in advance do you need to book the Lobster Tour with Captain Clive?

I would call him a week in advance to make sure he is going out. He did us a favor by going Saturday morning.
