It’s your fishing charter or lobster tour, so you can keep your hands squeaky clean or get ’em dirty. No matter what, you’ll have a great time.
After you reel in your fish or haul a trap, we’ll clean your catch or make sure the “bugs” are banded. When we get back to land, you can take your fish or lobster home, or we’re happy to point you int he direction of the popular Lobsta Land restaurant where they’ll cook it for you.
