Great educational trip
Informative, engaging and fun for the kids. Adults learned a few things too. Well organized.
We really enjoyed it. Everything about it. Definitely the highlight of our trip!!
Great experience for the kids. Just the right amount of time on the boat to be great on a hot day. The captain and his assistant were great with the kids. Fun for me too!
Very informative and entertaining. Perfect for our 3 kids ranging in age from 4 to 10. We will definitely come back for another adventure. The only critique I have is that I wish the 'hands-on' part was longer!
Fun interactive tour with an EXCELLENT, knowledgeable tour guide.. Very informative - we learned so much about lobsters and other sealife. Just the right length for families with kids.
The tour was a blast; a great blend of informative, relaxing, and tons of hands-on fun. Both kids and adults had a great time. Would highly recommend!
The interaction for the kids was fun. Good learning about lobsters also
Our trip was amazing! The guide Pat was so knowledgeable, so patient, so friendly. We were with a 2yo, 5yo, and 7yo, and they had a fantastic time watching the traps being pulled up, and then banding the claws -- a fantastic hands on experience. And the adults were just as entertained. It was a great adventure!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed learning so much about the lobster industry. The narrator was informative and he was really great interacting with the children. He told me about the Lobster Shack and we walked over to buy a lobster for dinner. Delicious! Great trip and would highly recommend to our friends and family. One suggestion, however, if you had bottle water on hand to drink during the tour.
Went on a gorgeous day with daughters and granddaughters. I've recommended this tour to several people since and you can bet I'll be back again. Very knowledgeable and entertaining crew. Lots of hands on activity.
Thank you so much for the wonderful experience! The boys had a blast and loved the hands-on activities. Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn about the bay and what the fisherman do from trap to plate.
We had a blast. Very professional. Very well organized. Very entertaining as well as informative. . Interesting for adults and children alike.
Presentation was appropriate for both adults and children. A good mix of "lecture" and hands-on. Length of the trip was great for younger children.
Very educational for adults and very fun for kids!

Chris was great with providing us with information on lobsters, crabs and other sea life. Very enjoyable!
This was an amazing tour for our family. Perfect for families and kids. Christopher was so patient with all the children and answering all of their questions. He let each child make sure to have a chance to hold and band the lobsters. It was so educational and enjoyable for all!
Everything exceeded expextations
Well first and foremost, I booked the trip (with my 4 year old son) for the wrong week and the girl at the check in booth accommodated us without a pause. Even then there was one couple and three other children, each with a parent. The captain and his mate were fabulous and all of the kids had such fun! It was a great lesson in preservation, biology, and respect for our community and it's history. The hands on approach kept the children engaged while the narrative fed their subconscious and kept adults intrigued. I wish I could remember the names of the captain and his mate- I highly recommend.
So informative and hands on! My children and I had an awesome time on the water!
The crew was very knowledgeable not only about the lobsters, the industry but about the history of Newport. Our group was a mixture of all ages. What a great experience for all!
The tour was fun and our guide taught us a lot about lobsters and how they live and grow. My nieces and nephew loved it!
It was a great informative crew. Brought my four-year-old daughter along she had a great time.
Great afternoon family adventure.
We had fun and the tour guy gave us all the answer that we want, and he's very knowlegeable about the tour.
