A day in the lift of a lobster fisherman – This is a real hands on experiential adventure with a third generation Lobster fisherman learning the craft of fishing for prehistoric crustaceans! A full day adventure awaits you as daybreaks. You will be kitted out in all the gear and will help as a ‘cork’ (the island name for a Lobster fisherman’s helper) along side the skipper and crew hauling the lobster traps, hooking the buoy as well as picking the traps of lobster, rockcrab and fish. Upon return-ing to the wharf you will weigh up the catch and get the lobsters ready for the processors. There is lots to see and do on this once in a lifetime experience!
