Repair: The track running

Harvesting lobsters from the sea has always been an important part of New England's culture. This calm water cruise provides a hands-on approach to see how lobsters are harvested from their natural environment. As a few volunteers roll up their sleeves to help haul in lobster traps, passengers will be able to closely observe lobsters, crabs and other species of marine life that live in Plymouth Harbor, (moon snails, sea stars and sometimes fish). In an effort to preserve the marine life for the future of our planet, everything is released back into the sea.

This cruise passes alongside:

  • Mayflower II Replica Ship
  • Plymouth Rock
  • Plymouth Long Beach
  • Be sure to bring your questions and your camera!

  • Specific dates April through October (1 Hour)

    Educational Fun for Students of All Ages

    Aboard Lobster Tales, students will have a rare opportunity to experience a hands-on activity hauling lobster traps from Plymouth Harbor, MA. Students will learn about the daily life of a New England lobster fisherman. The focus will be on lobster biology, lobster trap mechanics, comparing different species of crabs and discovering other sea creatures that live in the harbor. Students will be encouraged to closely examine the catch. They will learn that interacting and asking questions are both fun and educational.

    Taking students outside the classroom and immersing them in the outdoors will give them a better understanding and appreciation of their ocean environment.
