Private Lobstering Experience
Maine, New England, United States of America
Today, you will step aboard a private lobstering vessel with a captain and crew and set out on an adventure at sea to pull up traps alongside a real lobsterman!
Your crew will provide an interpretative sightseeing tour of the coast along with an explanation of the sea life that thrives in the waters below. You will make three or four stops along the way, pulling up traps that were previously set. Watch as the lobstermen pull up the cages and explain lobstering laws, ecology, and how this tradition is steeped in the culture. The fun heightens as you look through the trap and find everything from lobster to star fish that have tiptoed their way in. The crew will tell you more about each critter and allow to you touch them when safe to do so. Release the traps back into the water and enjoy a leisurely ride back to the docks with a greater understanding of the profitable and famous lobster industry.
