Maine is famous for its lobsters but did you ever wonder about lobster fishing? Take a Kennebunk Lobster Tour to learn all about Maine lobster fishing as well as enjoying scenic views of the Maine coast!
Lobstermen (and lobsterwomen) have been harvesting this tasty bounty from the Maine Coast since before the birth of the United States and now you can learn how and where they collect the biggest, finest Maine Lobster specimens on a Kennebunk Lobster Tour with First Chance tours.
First Chance offers whale watching and Kennebunk lobster tours from May to October, weather permitting. They’ll take you out on their 65 foot sightseeing vessel, Kylie’s Chance – one of the largest touring ships plying the New England coastal waters! With options for covered seating, bottled water and soda on board, you’ll be set for a comfortable day of sightseeing.
During your Kennebunk Lobster Tour, you’ll learn about the fascinating history of Maine lobster fishing, from the days when they washed up on the shore in two foot piles to today, when only careful maintenance keeps the lobster industry alive. You’ll see the tools of the trade, the best waters for harvesting Maine lobster, and even how these delicious and amazing creatures are caught.
But that’s not all – your hour and a half long, First Chance Kennebunk Lobster Tour will also provide you with gorgeous views of the iconic Maine coastline, including seals on Bumpkin Island, and the Bush Compound where, if you’re lucky, you might even see President Bush 41 casting a line into the waters. Sure, go ahead and wave – he often waves back!
