If you've ever imagined yourself at the helm of a lobster boat, then it's time to climb aboard one to experience lobstering first-hand. 

Join the fleet of working fishing boats in Newport Harbor aboard the 50 ft. wooden lobster boat F/V Northeastern for a lobster tour with Fish'n Tales Adventures. Led by Captain Rob Demasi, a Rhode Island commercial fisherman with more than three decades of experience, you'll motor out to some of the best lobster fishing grounds in New England.

The tour is part scenic adventure and part learning experience. You'll see how lobster traps are hauled from the sea floor, then get to work, helping to prepare bait, sort the catch and throw small lobsters back in the bay. Learn how lobstermen decide whether a lobster is good to keep, or needs more time at the bottom of the sea. 


When you're ready, we can't wait to welcome you back to The Classic Coast. Rest assured, the safety and well-being of both visitors and locals remains our top priority. The mask mandate requiring face coverings in Rhode Island has been lifted, however local businesses may ask you to wear a mask when visiting their establishments. Please be prepared for individual business mask policies. Additionally, shops, attractions and tours are monitoring the number of guests at any given time and may ask you to socially distance to enter. 

All we ask when you land on these shores is that you play your part in keeping everyone safe. Please be kind, adhere to guidelines and maintain social distancing.
