Come Aboard for a Two Hour Lobster Tour Through Historic Boston Harbor


Two Buoys Lobster Tours of BostonJoin us on the “Sixpence” , a genuine 44′ diesel powered down east  commercial lobster boat for a unique lobster tour through historic Boston Harbor. Up to 6 passengers will board the boat at one of our several pick up points in downtown Boston. 

We will then proceed outbound through Boston Harbor while your captain and crew narrate some of the history and facts about the harbor.

After navigating the inner harbor we will arrive at the area around the Harbor Islands where we will haul lobster pots. Your Captain will teach you about lobsters and the lobster fishing industry, and you’ll also learn about the types of sea life that are regularly found in the lobster pots.

Children and adults can study these various sea creatures up close and personal through our touching tank; which presents a great photo opportunity.  Of course, these interesting creatures will be returned to the sea unharmed at the end of the day.

Near the end of the tour we will make an inbound journey up the harbor to the dock. Each person on the tour will take home a freshly caught live and kicking lobster, and may also purchase additional lobsters for a discounted boat price.

List of recommended items to wear and bring on your Lobster Tour:

  • Warm clothing: Although it is usually mild, a sea breeze is common and can be cool. 
  • Sunscreen
  • Hats
  • Sunglasses

  • Cameras
  • A snack or lunch: Complimentary soft drinks, iced tea and bottled water are available on board.
