Why go to a trip to MDI without learning about the delicious little creature served at almost every meal (LOBSTERS)?! This boat trip was a fun activity. You meet at the dock and then everyone gets on board. Before we left, he offered to let people who are prone to seasickness to borrow pressure wrist bands. He says that no... More

My kids are 12, 9, and 7 so it was hard to pick a tour that wasn't babyish yet not over the 7 year old's head. We saw many, many seals and learned a LOT about the lobster fishing industry from an obvious pro. Very interesting for big people and littler ones, too. It's probably not a good tour for... More

We live local and wanted to do something fun in Bar Harbor. We were not disappointed with Captain John's pleasant demeanor and family friendly tour of the bay and his extensive knowledge on the fisheries in Maine. He pulled a lobster trap up from the ocean floor and brought it around for us all to see and touch. Complimentary beverages,... More

This boat ride has exceeded our expectations. We watched seals, golden eagles, saw a very picturesque lighthouse, and of course learned a lot about lobsters. Captain was very entertaining and kids enjoyed the whole experience as well as adults.

The Lulu experience is not to be missed and is very well priced compared to other options. Captain John is a true professional adjusting very well to the crowd and keeping people interested and informed the whole way through. Dress warmly.

My family and I recently went on this lobster boat experience. Although the fog was a bit annoying, we learned a lot and had a fun time. My children learned about lobsters in a fun way and Captain John was very good at keeping the kids involved with the presentation. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Sent our guys out on this boat and they really enjoyed it. They learned a lot about lobster and said that it was not only educational but also funny! They saw several lighthouses and many seals. Overall a great time and the price is pretty reasonable!
