Vessel Info

The original Lucky Catch is a 37 ft. Maine built fiberglass lobster boat designed to be smooth and stable on ocean waters. Built-in 1983 for the sole purpose of commercial lobstering, the Lucky Catch didn’t carry her first paying customers until 1997. Now operating from the first weekend of May through the last weekend of October she is a U.S. Coast Guard licensed vessel equipped to carry 22 passengers comfortably and safely around Casco Bay. To ensure an unforgettable and personal lobstering experience each excursion is limited to just fourteen passengers.

 The Original Lucky Catch is equipped with:

 

Life Jackets for all passengers, Manual and Automatic,
Fire Fighting Systems, Life Ring / Distress Flares,
VHF Marine, Radio / Radar, Sonar/ GPS

In December 2007 we launched the new 40 ft. Lucky Catch, built by
SW Boatworks near Bar Harbor, Maine. The new boat carries passengers from June through September and will lobster commercially the remainder of the year. Even with greater capacity, this boat is limited to twenty passengers to provide an interactive and educational lobstering excursion for everyone onboard.

The NEW Lucky Catch is equipped with:

The St. Croix, also built by SW Boatworks, was launched in 2003 and is the same 40’ Maine built hull as the new Lucky Catch. The St. Croix initially operated in Bar Harbor before arriving in Casco Bay and joined Lucky Catch Cruises in 2014. In addition to lobstering excursions and private charters, this boat also serves as a ferry in the summer. It offers the most cover for inclement weather and carries sixteen passengers for lobstering.
