A trip with Captain Walt is an absolutely special experience. His lobster yacht GAEL is comfortable and authentic. He is very knowledgeable about the islands, the environment, the wildlife, the history and the geology. We stopped on an island for a picnic lunch which was delightful. All in all a great day and would strongly recommend a trip with him.... More

Our family (adult sisters and mother) chose Capt. Walt's tour from a website as a special expedition. He was very accommodating about the possibility of changing plans on a day with questionable weather. We couldn't have been more delighted that we decided to go! In addition to all the sights mentioned by Ann K, we also got an up-close view... More

Grandpa and I, our son and our two grandsons (both 5) had an absolutely fascinating, delightful time touring Penobscot Bay around Deer Isle in July. This is a custom boat tour that for us included wildlife observation (seals, birds), lighthouses, watching and learning about lobster fishing, photo-ops, many different boats, Stonington harbor, and just being out on the water with...
