We own a family vacation cabin outside Bangor and spend a lot of time in Bar Harbor. This was one of our favourite attractions, it captivated the kids attention, let them touch and feel what they saw on the monitor and learned about the native creatures in Maine. From Lobsters, to scallops, to sea cucumbers, it was a blast.

This was one of my child's favorite activities while visiting Maine. Diver Ed made them laugh and kept them very entertained. They learned so much and had fun. We did the Lulu Lobster Boat tour also. Both are great but this one is really catered to younger children. My kids are 8 and 9. They absolutely loved it and still... More

The reviews don't do this tour justice! Diver Ed, Captain Evil and their crew are amazing! We all learned so much on this trip! We were really impressed with the quality and clarity of Diver Ed's underwater camera. And even better, getting to touch some of the creatures he encountered in the water. We also enjoyed learning about the birds... More

Our group of 5 adults, a 2 year old and 4 month old went on a very cold day. Captain Evil (Mrs. Ed) greeted and graciously offered to refund the ticket cost for the little ones due to the cold and the somewhat choppy water. My wife was anxious about the cold and the choppy water but we all decided... More

What can I say about this tour that hasn't been said in other reviews? More than anything else I appreciate Diver Ed's efforts to instill in young people a sense of connection to and responsibility for the natural world. By making the tour so fun and interesting while at the same time talking about basic principals of sustainability and good... More

Traveling with a 4 yr old, his Dad and the Grandparents, we all had a great time. We decided to take this trip after seeing it on TA and the recommendations from the visitors center in Bar Harbor. There was a national park ranger on board for the trip - she told us all about the area, the harbor and... More

We have three small kids (9,7,5) - this was our first activity in Bar Harbor and it was just great. Diver Ed is funny and entertaining and the kids loved the whole thing. Very educational but light and funny and hands on. Definitely recommended.

Diver Ed obviously loves what he does and makes sure everyone on the trip has a great time. Him and his wife "Captain Evil" take you out on a cruise that is not only very educational, but extremely entertaining. Any school age kid would love this trip and parents will have an awesome time as well.

We recently took our 2 and 4 year olds on this adventure and it was the highlight of our Bar Harbor vacation. Diver Ed and his crew have a flare for drama, creating a funny, creative yet educational experience for all ages. Our children along with the dozens of others had a blast listening to Diver Ed and especially loved... More

During our trip to Acadia we decided to take the Dive In Theater Boat tour aboard the Starfish Enterprise and it was awesome! The tour meets in the parking lot at the College of the Atlantic with lots of parking. Captain Evil, diver Ed's wife Edna, greeted us and led us down to the boat where we were heartily welcomed...
