    We spent a beautiful day fishing and watching lobstering on the Vagabond. It's close to an hour's ride to the fishing grounds spent watching beautiful scenery. We stopped briefly to watch and take pic...  more »

    I've used this charter every year on my vacation for the past six years and have never had a problem. This is the only charter that I know of that will give you free lobsters from their own traps (if ...  more »

    A group of us have headed out on Acadia Fishing Tours for the past three years. Initially, we did so to accommodate the younger members of the family. This tour is most suitable for that type of day t...  more »

    You can't go wrong fishing with this company. If booking a morning tour for 8 a.m. make sure to get at the boat early since parking can be a little confusing. And make sure to not park at the coast guard station, right next to where you will meet up, since it will get towed if you do. Our trip out didn't catch a lot of fish, but it was still worth the experience. The staff tried their best to go to new spots when nobody was catching anything, and worked hard to catch lobsters for the group. The trip out took 40 minutes to get to the spots to start fishing. And the staff had a lot of equipment for safty and fishing. They do everything for you, all you need to do is cast out. The staff worked their tail off to get you some fish.

    Barb and Charlie were Awesome! On thd other hand Annie, the lady who booked us over-booked the boat and marked 2 people off the list from my group without letting us know before we showed up.

    This is a can't miss. Crew was as genuine and personable as I've ever encountered. Patient and very customer oriented. Fishing was good. Came back to our rental with a bunch of fish and lobster for everyone. Great experience. Very family friendly.

    Worth the money. Captain could be a bit more sociable, but otherwise a great charter trip.

    We caught our limit of Pollock within an hour and a half. We changed locations several times trying for larger fish which no one caught but everyone still had fun. The captain took the boat over to a spot where the seals hang out and we got to see them. They then pulled up two dozen lobster pots and handed out all the legal lobsters based on a lottery/ number draw system. Almost everyone got one. The pollock that were caught were filleted right there on the boat and divided up evenly between everyone that wanted some. There were plenty to go around. Three pieces of advice: 1) If you are prone to sea sickness this is NOT a trip for you. 2) The crew said that August is the month for lobsters and occasionally they will pull so many that people on the boat will get two. 3) for the fishermen(women) this is a bottom-bouncing / jigging type fishing trip not a trolling or casting excursion. Overall: Captain A+, Crew A+, Value A+, Location A- due to the likely-hood of fog.
