Lobster and Scenic Boat Tours

 

A fun way to get out on the water is a Maine Lobster Boat and/or Scenic Boat Tour. Departing from seaside villages and harbors are hourly or half day tours aboard authentic lobster boats. Your Captain will take you on a narrated boat ride, show you lobster pots and even haul in a lobster trap for the day's catch. This will whet your appetite for a lobster dinner that evening. You will also see the dramatic Maine coastline as part of your cruise. The Lobster boat tours from Kennebunkport cruise around Walkers Point, the so-called summer White House of former President Bush.

 

Lighthouse tours are another fun affordable adventure. The best way to see many of Maine' s lighthouses is by water, the way sailors do. Your lighthouse tour guide will provide you seafaring legends and lore about Maine's historic lighthouses. Boat tours out of Portland bring visitors into Casco Bay, around Bug Light and Portland Headlight - Maine' s first and foremost lighthouse. An evening lighthouse cruise is spectacular as the sun sets on the Maine shore.

 

Lobster boat tours and Lighthouse tours during the day are more afforadable than a full day schooner sail for example, and typically take an hour or two so they are family friendly - kids will enjoy the boat ride and the chance to see a fisherman catch a real live Maine lobster. Everyone will appreciate the scenery of the beautiful Maine coastline from the deck of the tour boat. You will find daily and even hourly lobster boat tours and lighthouse boat tours in season in the Maine harbor towns of Kennebunkport, Portland, Boothbay Harbor, Camden, Rockland, and Bar Harbor.

 

Dress accordingly for your boat ride, sneakers or boat shoes, and a jacket or windbreaker as it is often much cooler on the water off shore. Warning, you may be craving a fresh Maine lobster after your boat ride, but that is an easily solved dilemma at any of Maine's seafood restaurants.
