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

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

I can't say enough good things about the entire experience. Just an absolutely great time. When you can laugh and learn at the same time you know something is right! Our kids (8 and 10) loved every second... as did my wife and I! We would totally do this again and I really consider this a "don't miss" experience if... More

We had a great time on this cruise. It was so unique and exceeded our expectations. Ed and his crew clearly wanted to do everything to ensure we were thoroughly informed and entertained. Mini-Ed was a nice touch and letting all the kids push him off the boat was a great way to start the dive.

We did Diver Ed for the 2nd time yesterday. What a great kid friendly experience. Diver Ed is hysterical & really holds the kids attention the entire time. Well worth it! We'll be back! Jackson is still talking about his interaction with Diver Ed :-)

Diver Ed and crew were amazing! We had a blast. Dived Ed talked to every passsenger and it was very interactive with all the kids. The camera and tv used for underwater view was great. This is a great adventure for families and we will go again!

We had a wonderful time on the Starfish Enterprise with Diver Ed, Captain Evil Edna, and the crew that included two beautiful Newfoundland dogs named Halo and Leviathan. Everyone involved was friendly and personable and we (2 kids and 2 adults) had a fabulous time. All of us learned about the animals off the Maine coast in a fun and... More

A few years ago we 'happened' upon some tickets to Diver Ed's. Well, was that a find!!! For a great family (or non-family!) time, interacting with sea creatures, being educated in an extremely fun way, do this!! Since going there the first time, we've brought **many** families along to experience Diver Ed and no one has been disappointed. Everyone has... More
