Start your Camden experience and Maine family tour (though it’s not just for families!) 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 Camden over the years, ending with your choice of a tasting or boat cruise.
Each guest will be able to choose the appetizer of their choice as long as you all are at the same restaurant. This is a great opportunity to each order something different and share! The lobster boat trip is a great Maine family tour as the kids can interact with some of the creatures!
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 Camden, 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.
Your TeleTour includes the one appetizer or boat trip per person, tax and tip – see choices below.

While Red Cloak Tours is usually dog friendly, the restaurants do not allow dogs other than possibly service animals. The Lively Lady boat tour does welcome well behaved, leashed dogs.
Seafood Discovery Tours and others, with a professional Red Cloak guide, are also in other locations around the state.
