A trip to Maine is not complete without a freshly steamed lobster dinner. And one of the many ways that Acadia Center for English Immersion students get to know more about life in our small town community on Maine’s rocky coast is by learning about lobsters and lobster fishing.
One popular excursion is to the museum at Marshall Point in Port Clyde and the lighthouse made famous by Tom Hanks in the film Forest Gump.
In summer, students also take a cruise on the M/V Lively Lady out of our home port of Camden, and see what it’s like to haul a lobster trap.
Check out the current issue of The Maine Thing Quarterly for an in-depth look at lobstering today, including an interview with a lobster fisherman.
