This is a good tour--educational & nice tour of the harbor, thanks to the entertaining teaching style of the captain. If you're looking for a fancy tour of the harbor, you should probably look elsewhere. This is a meat-and-potatoes "What's this lobster fishing/farming all about?" tour. If you want to know, take this tour. It is not the easiest place... More

Captain is very well spoken and educated. It was informative. My 4 year old enjoyed the seals and lobsters, but a bit bored. Not sure it is the best attraction for young ones. My teenagers enjoyed it because they "got" the captain's dry sense of humor. We learned a lot about lobstering and Maine's role in the industry.

Overall, we enjoyed this tour. The Captain is incredibly knowledgable and it seems like he knows everything you could possibly know about lobsters. Also, his ability to spot a bald eagle - initially from somewhat far away - was impressive. That said - a few things to know. We arrived/checked in at about 4:55 for a 5:00 cruise. Yes that's...

I am most disappointed in this review. But I do thank the reviewer for her comments as it gives me an opportunity to explain our procedures and the reason we have them in place. I do my very best to provide a quality tour and experience for all my passengers. When advance reservations are made (as in this case), the... More

This is a famous attraction, but i found it just ok. The guy really does know everything about lobster fishing, and it was a nice ride out past the harbor to explore how lobsters are caught, etc. The kids liked touching the lobster and i learned about about why Maine still has so many lobsters left. but this is not...

We had a great time on the boat. We were at Bar Harbor on 8/20/14, as Captain said the weather was extremely clear and beautiful on the day we were out on the water. The boat ride was good, very educational and entertaining. We learn something about lobster, saw some seals, eagles and nice scenic ride along the way. The... More

Captain John of the Lulu Lobster boat is part teacher, part comedian, part Maine spokesperson and all fun. The 2-hour excursion was a delight from start to finish. The talk about lobster fishing and the local ocean eco-system was geared both to the many children on-board and the adults who wanted more in-depth info. A local friend had recommended the... More

Lulu's was a great experience, probably the coolest thing we did in Bar Harbor! Captain John was very knowledgeable, funny, and made the entire trip fun. I get a little seasick but they handed out wristbands at the beginning if you wanted them and I had zero problems. They even had drinks on board if you wanted one. We saw... More

We took our teenager (and you know that's a hard audience to please) and she loved it. The captain/guide is an incredibly bright guy with a broad range of expertise and experience. You'll learn more than you though you could about the lobster industry and you'll also understand much more about Bar Harbor.

We had wavered on whether to take any boat rides since we weren't sure how we would react to being on a boat and the weather could be an issue and would we spend a lot of money to see nothing. We decided on LuLu's and couldn't be happier that we did! Captain was VERY well informed about lobsters, the... More

If you visit Bar Harbor, this is a MUST SEE!!! Captain John not only is entertaining but taught us so much about lobsters, eagles, and even ocean conservation. Beautiful boat ride out to a light house that is inhabited by a pair of eagles along with their "ugly" baby-ha. The island is also full of harbor seals and we even... More
