An excursion aboard the lobster boat Elizabeth T is a safe, comfortable experience. We refurbish the boat every year, inspecting for any necessary repair and maintenance. Our route keeps us within the protected waters of the Cranberry Islands, so you can expect calm water. Although our private charters can accommodate 21 passengers we self limit our shared tours to 12 ensuring ample room for each guest. There is a small toilet on board, blankets for cool weather, and an electric cooler for drinks. Our captains are Coast Guard licensed and we carry all safety gear including lifejackets (adult and child), first aid kits, and fire extinguishers.
You may cancel your reservation without charge up to 48 hours prior to your scheduled departure. If you cancel within the 48 hour period or fail to show up at boarding, you will be responsible for the full amount of the charter/cruise. Weather related cancellations will be determined by the Captain. If your charter/cruise is cancelled due to weather and we are unable to reschedule the trip to your satisfaction, you will not be charged.
