Our family is so glad we went on this excursion and our 5 year old daughter had the time of her life! She couldn't wait to tell her grandfather how she and the other kids were able to push Diver Ed into the water and how excited she was to touch a lobster but tells people all the sea creatures...

Its a real interesting idea they have, never seen anything like it. The guy goes diving with a high tech video camera and live feed to the boat, where you watch (and listen) on the big screen. Then he brings up the various little shell animals he's found and the kids can come up and touch them, etc. its hillarious... More

We went out on Monday this week. This was our 2nd annual trip with diver Ed and his gang. We live near the ocean and spend a lot of time at the ocean. Despite this-My boys loved it again this year and immediately asked if we could again next year upon disembarking the Starfish Enterprise. It was a gorgeous day... More

My son and I went out with Diver Ed and his wife, Captain Evil (who was NOT at all evil), and Mini Ed #159 last week. I think it was the highlight of highlights for our trip. Ed is terrific -- kids and adults alike were totally engrossed, as well as highly entertained! He's the John Belushi of the Maine... More

This was our first trip, but certainly not our last. We chose the nature cruise of three hours where a Park Ranger is on board. We saw many animals of the sea including seals, porpoises, and birds. And that was just on the surface! When Diver Ed went into the sea (pushed in by all the kids) we saw all... More

This was my second time at Diver Ed's, and it has not lost its charm. We took our 10 year old nephew, and he said that Ed should do stand up comedy. This is really a can't miss experience, and I'm not at all surprised that Tripadvisor rates it as the #1 activity in Bar Harbor.

Diver Ed and his wife Captain Evil (who isn't!) run the best family fun venue in Bar Harbor. The boat ride is a great deal of fun and Ed is a real character--and a great performer. You will learn a great deal about the local environment and you will be very well entertained. If you are on a trip with... More

I can only say great things about our family experience on the 'starfish enterprize'. Initially we booked it more for our six year old we all had a great time. Diver and and his sidekick (wife) Capt Evil are a great team. We were highly entertained throughout and we all learnt a good number of things about marine life is... More

Ed and his wife are fantastic. They make the 2.5 hour trip informative and fun for everyone. While this is geared toward children, it is just as much fun for adults. We handled scallops, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, sea stars, crabs, and lobsters. A very hands on experience. Ed is great and very sociable. He is passionate about his work,... More

Diver Ed's Dive-In Theater is a highly entertaining and very unusual type of sightseeing tour where you don't really go anywhere. The basic format is that the audience boards the boat and heads for the middle of the bay -- but not to the deep waters! Instead, the boat anchors in water 50-60 feet deep. While the boat is outbound,... More
