Nestled in the old port district of Portland is the bustling working waterfront where lobstermen off-load their catch from Casco Bay and seafood shops offer the freshest delicacies from the sea. Discover the inner workings of the area with a voyage on a lobster boat followed by walking tour through the cobbled streets of the area exploring the numerous marine related businesses. From the pier a short walk brings you to the waterfront departure point of your lobster boat. Following a short safety briefing depart to Casco Bay to pull live traps. During the voyage discover how lobsters get from the bottom of the ocean to your dinner plate and learn about their habits, conservation efforts and the difference between hard shells, shedders, shorts, culls and keepers.


A see through live tank allows you to watch the catch until the end of the day, when they’re released back into the sea. Upon return to the pier, join your guide for a walking tour of the old port area. Your guide will carve a path through the streets of this charming area, which a hundred years ago was home to fish houses, canneries, industrial factories and textile mills. Today the brick warehouses hold numerous fresh seafood shops, coffee houses, bakeries and award-winning restaurants. Learn about the history of this area, as your guide offers insight into the history of the old waterfront.
