About Lobster Acadia

Our wooden lobster boat, the Elizabeth T. was built right here on Mount Desert Island out of local cedar and oak. She carries up to 21 passengers, making a perfect size boat for sightseeing, island picnics, and lobster fishing demonstrations. Join us on one of our cruises or book your own private charter.

Cruise into Somes Sound Fjord and haul a lobster trap! Learn all about lobsters and how fishermen bait and trap them. We'll visit a seal colony on East Bunker Ledge and see the 100 year old Osprey nest on Sutton Island. We'll also cruise by Bear Island Lighthouse and Cranberry Island where a fishing community is anchored after 200 years! This excursion is a real hands-on experience great for the whole family and full of wildlife and local knowledge.
