Start your Kennebunkport experience for great Maine eats with a trip back in time to the 1700’s. Learn about the seafood harvesting practices of our earliest settlers and walk the same ground they did. Next, you’ll have a brief history of fishing and seafood connections in Kennebunkport over the years, ending with a lobster boat fishing cruise.
Fishing will certainly be discussed on your Seafood Discovery Tour. Lobster, elvers, oysters, scallops, mussels, tuna, haddock, urchins, etc. might be some of the seafood subjects.
Shipbuilding and its related productions will also be touched on. It was a very important waterfront industry here in Kennebunkport, and ships were certainly needed for offshore fishing and trade. Other aspects discussed could be seaweed, ice harvesting, foundries, lime kilns, early tourism & steamboats, etc.
Some availability may depend on days the venue is open or their seasonal hours.
While Red Cloak Tours is usually dog friendly, the boat does not allow dogs other than service animals. Please call if you have additional questions!
