Diver Ed is a riot, but extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about marine life, diving, and how to grab & keep kids' attention. His potty humor can be a bit much for adults, but kids love it, and that's all that counts on this family-friendly, kid-oriented adventure. As soon as my 10-yr-old son got off the boat, he wanted to do... More

Great boat tour for our entire family with three boys (ages 8, 11, and 14). Diver Ed and crew were very friendly, personable, funny. We got to see lots of fun things via the underwater camera Diver Ed took down: star fish, crabs, lobsters, sea cucumbers, etc. It was educational and it was neat to see and touch the things... More

I'm glad we did this boat tour last because, from our kids' perspective, other tours--which are equally great but not as entertaining or hands-on--would have paled in comparison. Our children were able to watch Ed dive on the screen, then see up-close and touch the animals he retrieved! The animals were all returned to the sea, but the memories of... More

This was a fantastic trip for my son (9) and myself. After a long, frigid whale watching trip earlier in the week, I was concerned that this would be another excruciating wait for a questionable payoff, during which I tried to keep my son's boredom from becoming a headache for other passengers. Boy was I ever wrong! From the get-go... More

I agree with everyone else here - it was so much fun! Two quick notes about things I was worried about beforehand: Age ranges - I was a little worried about how my smaller children (ages 5, 3 and 1.5) would do with a bunch of older children since most reviews talked about kids in the 8-10 range. But it... More

Ed and his wife could be a comedy team! The trip was a lot of fun for everyone. Would suggest calling if mobility impaired because of the Step ramp to get to the boat. Levi the water rescue dog was so friendly. Highly recommend for any family or adults.

Diver Ed's Dive -In Theatre was worth every penny! While traveling to Bar Harbor I was looking up popular places to see while vacationing here and I found Diver Ed's which had wonderful reviews. PLUS it was something that the whole family could enjoy. I placed a call and was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by a bubbly lady who... More

My husband and I took a boat ride with Diver Ed and Captain Evil and their dogs two days ago. Although this is geared for kids, we both had a truly great time. Very educational and fun at the same time. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Everyone on board had a great time. Diver Ed is a... More

This is an incredible experience! Unique, educational, entertaining & fun! We enjoyed it just as much as our granddaughter did! The special audio & video lets you experience Diver Ed on the ocean floor as he gathers sea creatures & brings them onboard for 'touch tank' hands-on learning! (They are safely returned to the sea.)
