There is no better way to experience Shelburne than by taking this boat tour. I have made the trip many times and each one has been unique. Sherri and ken share lots of history of this lovely town and surrounding area...thanks. I am looking forward to another trip or two this coming year!

Our whole family went and we had a blast! Saw 2 whales and 3 seals. It's a must-do in Shelburne.
Tracy Way

The Harbour Tour is an awesome experience! I had never been on a boat before and was terrified, but you don't even feel like you are on a boat at all! I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a night on the water, with music!
Becky Anne

It is well worth the ride... even for some of us that get sick on boats... Sherri & Ken are very knowledgeable on the water... very much well worth the trip...
AC Nelson

An informative but relaxing tour! Highly recommended!

Live Lobsters!
Each time Brown Eyed Girl heads out towards McNutts Island, we stop at one of our authentic lobster traps and Ken pulls the trap out of the water to show our passengers how a lobster trap works - you'll see a live lobster!.  You'll also get to touch sea urchins and starfishes if they decide to climb into the trap.  You'll love this part of the cruise... especially the kids!
