Are you fascinated by lobsters? Do you want to know how they are caught, which ones are kept, why they may be thrown back, how generations of lobstermen have sustained & maintained the fishing grounds? A boat trip with Crate to Plate® is just for you!
Come spend time aboard the M/V Fisher Girl, a commercial lobster boat, with Captain Dan Cosby and crew to roll up your sleeves and learn everything there is to know about lobster fishing. During the 3 hour tour we encourage you to dive in and get involved. Bait lobster bags, pull lobsters from traps, measure to see if they are “keep-ahs” and band them to drop them into the tank.
In addition to this one of a kind hands on experience you will see a side to Penobscot Bay only available by water. Harbor seals, birds, including eagles, and porpoise abound.
