    We can go on to take pictures, you must simply wait his turn as much in demand. Shops, toilets and nearby information booth. The booth staff is super nice and helpful.

    A great place to stretch your legs while taking in the attraction. You can climb up the provided stairs and have your photo taken with this giant sized lobster, butter not provided! LOL Souvenir shops offer lots of great memorabilia and clean washrooms on site.

    This is a Shediac landmark. It was fun to bike there from our campground. We also visited the gift shops. It is worth the stop to take some cool pictures 👍

    Interesting figure. Memorable to say the least. It was an entertaining visit and easy to find!

    You have to visit if you are in the area. Great views and good for laughs.

    While the lobster itself is quite cheesy and attached by tourists from all sides, the surround area is worth stoping for. It's a nice little park with a souvenir shop, visitors centre and very photogenic old sheds. Nice views and a huge parking lot.
