I was searching for the perfect activity for my 16 year old son and myself to enjoy together and this was PERFECT! I emailed Captain Todd a week before we arrived and we were very lucky that he could be accommodating with our schedule. We met him the morning of our trip on the dock as planned, hopped on board...

We wanted to take our almost 4 year old boy out on a boat, while vacationing in Saco, Maine, and Trina lyn charters made this happen. We caught fish, pulled lobster traps, and learned a lot about the life of fishermen. Captain Todd was very accommodating to our son, whom started out nervous, but ended up loving it! Highly recommended.

We were wanting to take the kids fishing in the ocean, but so few places actually offer children's fishing options and that's how we found Captain Todd and the Trina Lyn. We couldn't have been happier. He was so friendly and knowledgeable about the fish and area. We got to see a seal, go fishing for mackerel (we caught over... More

This was our second family trip with Captain Todd on the Trina Lynn. As with the first trip Captain Todd kept the kids well engaged with his knowledge of the sea. Teaching the kids how to Fish for Mackerel, check lobster traps, and keep a look out for seals. I have been on the Trina Lynn on more than one... More

What a wonderful way to spend a gorgeous afternoon! Captain Todd was so great with the kids and took us to check lobster traps, fish, visit the seals, and travel along the coast. His prices are reasonable and he is happy to create a trip for your family. We will make this an annual tradition!!!

We booked a two hour trip, and gave fish poles to our grandson only. The Captain took us to a spot where our boy caught Pollock two at a time! Then he hauled some lobster traps and explained the process, and finally took him to where he could see seals in the wild. What a great time we had, but... More

We took my 8 year old grandson for 2 hr. charter fishing trip and seal watch. Private for the four of us. Geared just for him. Captain Todd was great, made sure he got his fish, all 14. Well worth it for a great family experience that we all enjoyed without one complaint from the 8 year old, Delightful time... More

I took my boys on their 1st fishing charter on the Trina Lyn with Captain Todd. He was wonderful! My boys caught lots of fish and had a blast!! He even went by the lighthouse for me! He was great with the boys and made sure they enjoyed it! I recommend this trip for anyone with kids!

This trip was perfect for this family. Captain Todd was exactly what we were looking for. We covered so much water in two hours it was amazing. Answered all our questions and explained everything he showed us in detail. We pulled lobster pots, caught Makarel, pollack, female lobsters, male lobsters, some keepers, some had to be thrown back. Rode around... More
