Crack into Our Culture (and Seafood)

What would Yarmouth & Acadian Shores be without the fishing industry? It’s an integral part of the culture of our region — and now, you can see what it’s like to be a fisherman for a day. (Mind you, you won’t get paid for your labours, but you won’t have to pay for the experience either, since Living Wharves is free!)

Experience a demonstration on a working lobster boat, docked at various wharves around the Yarmouth area. Set a trap, hold and band a lobster, and splice some rope to help with the next day’s catch. Finish your day at one of our many incredible restaurants, and enjoy some of our region’s freshest seafood.
