We took our grand daughters on this cruise and they had a wonderful time. The were engaged the entire cruise, learned all about sea creatures and were able to touch and hold sea stars, sea cucumbers, lobsters and crabs. I would hightly recommend this activity to anyone visiting MDI, esp. if you have children along.

We went with eight people (ages 5 - 67) on a full ship, and we all had a blast! Diver Ed, Captain Evil, and the crew of Undersea Superheroes are welcoming, engaging and I sure learned a lot! Did you know sea cucumbers are related to sea stars? Me neither! I learned that and some other intriguing info about sea... More

My husband and I live in Bar Harbor, so we are familiar with the area's activity options. During a family visit involving ages 10 to 80, it was a no-brainer to opt to go out with Diver Ed. We knew everyone would enjoy the excursion, including us. Sure enough, we found the trip a great way for the six of... More

We went out on July 8th, weather was absolutely gorgeous. We opted for the tour with the park ranger on board as the kids are getting older. Both kids really liked and got involved by interacting in the touch tanks, etc. We were able to see harbor porpoise, seals, bald eagles. We had gone on Diver Ed a few years... More

We went on the trip two days ago… July 12. We have been to many, many hands-on aquatic events, so I was a little worried my kids (12 and 8) would be bored… but not so. The boat was pretty full of other families with kids and the seas were calm. My family loved the dogs… Newfoundlands… big and docile.... More

Our nine-year-old's favorite experience in Bar Harbor. Diver Ed is engaging from the moment you get on the boat until you get off. Not only was the trip fun--but also educational. I would recommend this to any family!

My husband, 4 1/2 year old son and I went on the Diver Ed excursion the other day and loved it! Diver Ed and his wife Kathleen are a fabulous team (educated and entertaining). This excursion is a very unique experience and great for both the kids and the adults! It is also just the right length for young children.... More

I'm a teacher, and I can say unequivocally, that if Diver Ed had been one of my students, I'd have lost my mind. HOWEVER, as a teacher himself, Ed is exactly what kids love. He's approachable, he's hilarious in that silly-absurd-gross way that kids really appreciate, but he never forgets that his purpose is to teach. My husband and I,... More

Diver Ed is perfect - educational and fun. My 5 and 8 year old absolutely loved their trip. Diver Ed and his wife entertained the children while teaching them a lot about the marine life of the Maine waters. I highly recommend this trip to anyone traveling with children.

Our 7 year old loved being able to touch all of the sea creatures that Diver Ed brought on the boat. The boat is very nice-was windy the night we were out... More
