DRINK MAINE BEER AND LEARN ABOUT OUR FAMOUS LOBSTERS
We know that visitors to Maine love to experience as much like a local as they can. So we have joined with our friends at Rocky Bottom Tours to offer a Lobster Brews Cruise on Casco Bay.
Based on Portland Pier on the working waterfront, Rocky Bottom Tours provides an experience for guests from around the world with a live demonstration of the lobster industry on board an actual lobster boat.
This tour will haul and set lobster traps alongside beautiful landmarks and sea life. This fun and interactive environment offers an experience to feel like a Maine lobsterman and grasp the concept of the lobster fishery.
Casco Bay has a multitude of sights to offer! The excursions are highly visual with sightseeing opportunities of lighthouses, islands and private beaches, sea creatures and sea life, commercial and recreational boats, the gorgeous rocky coastline and of course lobster, always lobster!
And the fishing vessel Wild Duck is the perfect platform to enjoy this experience. The Wild Duck was built in 1998 and was used previously as a fully functioning 40-foot offshore lobster boat. This vessel is completely approved by the Coast Guard for commercial passenger use, and all permits and licenses are up to date.
Please feel free to buy and bring some local Maine beers to enjoy during the 90-minute tour if desired.
After we tie back up on the dock, you are in a perfect position to grab a lobster dinner at the adjacent Luke’s Lobster waterfront location or at any of the great restaurants that Portland is so well known for.
Please note that timing may change without advance notice due to weather events and the availability of boat staff.
