This is a must activity is you are visiting the Yarmouth area. The Tusket Islands are not only remarkable but full of history. Lucien was the most amazing host ever. I really enjoyed all the stories he told us about lobster fishing..the acadian history..the tales of the fisherman at sea..and so much more. The seafood chowder was so delicious and you have to try Chad’s Captains special while you listen to some great live music. I cannot believe I only paid $80 either!

A historical, educational and musical adventure

A Not-So-Typical Tour

We depart on our modern boat where you will enter a historical adventure through the islands full of rich culture and history. You will learn how to haul a real lobster trap and see the process that an actual lobster fisherman would go through on a day to day basis. You will then stop on Big Tusket Island at the private floating dock (All docks have ramps, there are no ladders involved). On Big Tusket Island you will visit our own private fishing shanty and workshops. You will be served fresh local seafood chowder made from a traditional recipe passed on through past generations. After being filled with delicious seafood you can enjoy live entertainment on the sail back to the Wedgeport dock.
