This was an extremely fun trip, especially for children of all ages! Ed is extremely entertaining and informative at the same time. The ocean floor views with his awesome, color camera transmitted to a big screen on the boat were tremendous. He then brings many creatures onto the boat and teaches everyone about them. Then everyone gets an opportunity to... More

Booked this for our last day in Bar Harbor and Diver Ed & crew did not disappoint. Entertaining throughout the 2 hour trip. Great up-close look at marine life as Diver Ed brought back a net full of creatures after 15 minutes or so in the water. Extremely knowledgeable and it's probably the only time I'll see someone put a... More

We went for this because of all the 5* reviews and they are fully justified. The trip was great fun, especially for my two girls aged 8 and 10, but my wife and I both enjoyed it enormously as well.

This is a great place for kids and adults! Its funny and diver ed makes the trip fun. the trip to his dive spot is very windy so bring a jacket/wear pants. This is a hands on experience too but you don't have to if you don't want to.

From the moment my family stepped foot on this boat until the moment we stepped off, we were entertained! First, the boat. Doesn't hold a huge crowd. Everyone could see and hear. The boat is very stable, and the cruise is in protected waters, so risk of seasickness is slight. Bench seating with backs. One or two steps for the... More

My daughters loved this trip. (ages 6 & 11) Diver Ed and his wife kept their attention throughout the trip and they loved holding the sea creatures that Diver Ed caught. We had a blast. The museum where you meet to board the ship is full of cool animals. (taxidermy) The boat did not go out too far so seasickness... More

I chose Diver Ed's based on the overwhelming "excellent" reviews I read right here, and wasn't disappointed - the presentation and interaction with the sea animals was great, and Diver Ed is both entertaining and knowledgeable. He's also quite wacky, but it makes for a great show. He brought up lobsters, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, crabs, sea stars (don't call... More

Our kids thought Diver Ed was hysterical. Ed wears a funny dry suit, has a wonderful sense of humor, and entertaining personality. The kids had a chance to touch all of the sea creatures he finds at the bottom of the ocean. Very educational and entertaining!

We took this tour with 4 kids ages 3-15 and everyone had a blast! Diver Ed definitely keeps it fun and entertaining during the entire tour and everyone learned so much about the local wildlife and Frenchmans Bay. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a fun way to spend a day with the kids out on the water!
