We took this tour on 4th of July weekend. Two teenages ages 16&18 one about to study marine biology and excited to be there, the other putting up with the desire of Dad and sister to be on the tour. It starts with the handing out of the sea sick bands (we had our own) and jokes about how to... More

This was one of the best tourist trips we have taken. The Captain is engaging, smart, and entertaining. Great for kids.

I was a little bit skeptical about stepping onto the boat, mainly because I sometimes get motion sick. Boy, was I glad I went on! For a small cost, you can get on this lobster boat, haul a few lobster traps, learn the anatomy of requirements of catching lobster, and more. Sorry, you can't eat them just yet! The captain...

The captain was very knowledgeable and helped us understand the life of a lobsterman, but also shared many interesting tidbits about lighthouses, seals, eagles, the local area, and much more. His lecture would have been interesting in an auditorium, but to get to experience it while sailing on the blue water, looking out on the beautiful Maine scenery and glimpsing... More

We went out on this trip hoping to capture images of newly born seal pups in early June. I was lead to believe that 1/2 time of the trip would be spent with the seals. Actually the seal portion of the trip was 1/4 or less of the total trip. If you are looking for education on the area and... More

The guide was great! He was funny and very informative, we saw seals, he explained to us the different types of lobsters and crabs, the regulations of lobster fishing. It was fun going around traps and waiting to find lobsters. I would really recommend this tour!

We've taken three different boat rides in Bar Harbor, and this is by far the best. Captain John is every bit as informative and enjoyable as advertised. Even though we didn't catch a lot of lobsters, we saw seals and some great scenery. And Captain John will teach you many interesting facts about lobster and the life of lobster men.... More

We did the 3:30 tour. There was about 38 people on the boat but there was plenty of room on the boat. We first went out to a lighthouse where we were able to see seals. The tour guide shared a ton of information about the seals and the local area. We then cruised to the area where he had... More
