The ORIGINAL Cap'n Fish's Lobster
Trap Hauling and Seal Watch
1 1/4 Hour Trip
Cap'n Fish originated this trip over 15 years ago to
give our Region's visitors an idea of how those delicious
lobsters you enjoy at your favorite restaurant are
caught, how the traps are hauled and a little background
of Maine's famous lobster industry. Enjoy the seals
basking on the rocks. Educational. Fun for the whole
family. Bring Cameras!
See at first hand the National Audubon Society's success
in reestablishing a Puffin Colony on Eastern Egg Rock.
Truly a magnificent "Seafari" for all
nature lovers with seals, blue heron, an occasional
whale and other coastal wildlife along the way.
"Captain Fish's puffin cruises are wonderful experiences for many reasons, not the least of which is the terrific scenery and the miles of coastline between Boothbay Harbor and Eastern Egg Rock. Perhaps the most unique aspect of the trip is that since the boat travels in deep waters the opportunity to see unusual wildlife like a minke whale or maybe even a finback whale is always there, in addition to offshore species of birds like northern gannets and petrels. But the real treat is in seeing the busy and exciting colony of Atlantic Puffins at their southernmost nesting island in all of North America. National Audubon Society is proud of the relationship we've had with the Fish family in collaborating on these eco-tourism cruises ever since the puffins were restored to Eastern Egg Rock, back in the 1980's, and we've been able to serve tens of thousands of people since then on these wildlife explorations." Peter Salmansohn, Education Coordinator,
Seabird Restoration Program
“The puffin watching trip to Eastern Egg Rock with Captain Fish aboard the Island Lady is a delightful and informed wildlife watching experience. Audubon is proud to have our naturalists on board to provide passengers with insight into the lives of puffins and other Maine seabirds. “ Stephen Kress, Director, Project Puffin
