  • I was with a party of 8 people. We had a blast. We caught all the fish we could handle. We saw seal on the way out not to mention we got free lobster. The captain was very nice and Charlie the deckhand was very helpful. Barbara was an extremely personable lady. She was very informative and was funny and just made our experience that much more fun. We absolutely loved her and the trip Would definitely go again and would highly recommend it.
  • Not sure I'd call it fishing since on the 4 hour (3.5 hour because the mate was late) trip we fished for less than an hour. Boat was crowded, we were constantly tangling lines. Mates kept throwing fish back that were small and before we knew it time was up and after we pooled the fish, we came home with a tiny bag for a family if 5. Watching them haul lobster pots was fun for the first few then we lost interest as only those up front could see. The one large lobster we hauled was kept aside for the crew and not raffled off. Expensive day for a lot of sitting and not enough food for dinner.
  • Such a fun trip! The boat was tight with 31 people, but not a single person left without catching fish. We pulled over 250 pollock onto that boat as well as countless mackerel. The best part was every single person walked off the boat with a lobster! The pier where the boat docks boiled them for $3/lb. can't get fresher than that!
  • The day of our trip, it was extremely foggy. Not much was biting so we didn't real in any "big ones". The guides were knowledgeable, we got to see seal island, and watch them pull in lobster traps. Out of 30 traps, we kept 11 lobsters. It was enjoyable and would go again, just fishing wasn't good on this day.
  • We had a group of eight on a boy scout trip. Barb was hilarious, and Charlie was very nice. The other mate was efficient as well. It was raining on the way out, but the rain stopped when we first anchored just off of the Cranberry Islands, which was perfect. The boat is open, and not terribly large; there is little shelter from bad weather. We had 29 people on the trip, and I'd say that is about the limit for comfortable space to fish. That said, we caught a ton of pollock and mackerel, and some large cod were also reeled in, but had to go back as the season had yet to start. After catching a ton of fish, we hit the lobster traps. We had so many keepers that almost everyone took one with them. Out of our 8, we left with 6 lobsters. I'm sure that at least 20 keepers were hauled in. Back at camp, it was pizza night, supplemented with pollock, mackerel, and lobster. Not bad at all. Thanks to Acadia Fishing Tours for a great day out!
