Captain was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about lobsters...it was really interesting. It was a really cold trip out so a sweatshirt and a wind breaker is a really good idea. We sat along side of boat and got splashed a bit. We went out to the lighthouse to where the seals are and it was really nice... More

WOW! I never thought I would learn so much about lobsters in a two hour cruise but Captain John is definitely a good teacher, Captain and person! He has a vast knowledge of lobsters and is willing to share it with you during this cruise. The seals were very entertaining and as other reviews have noted, he turns the boat... More

We booked this excursion as part of a 32-person tour group on Memorial Day. The boat was large enough to fit all of us very comfortably, and we were the only people on board besides the Captain and his assistant (who we later found out was his grand-daughter). It was a great 2-hour tour and the time went by quickly.... More

My 6-year-old and I loved our tour on the Lulu Lobster Boat. It was a splurge for us, and as my daughter said, "that was WORTH the money!" We loved getting to see seals close up, watch lobsters brought up, and just riding on the boat. We loved how much we learned about lobsters, seals, lobstering, and the area. My... More

We actually went in 2013 for our 20th anniversary. Enjoyed learning about the lobster trade and seeing the seals that greeted us during our trip. Saw an Eagle and a light house that you cannot see from land. This trip is well worth it.

John, the captain, was interesting, informative and entertaining. With a twinkle in his eye and a quick wit, I found the time spent listening to him went all too quickly. His explanations of trapping lobsters were followed by hauling up the traps. We had a great time.

Lulu Lobster Boat is an absolutely MUST if you visit the Bar Harbor area and like lobster. Not only is this tour one of the best educational tours I have ever been on, but it is so much fun. Captain John is an expert on lobsters and has been on educational television programs because of his knowledge. He is very... More

The Captain was the most knowledgeable tour guide we have ever had. He turned the boat so that both sides could see the views. Everyone on this cruise had rave reviews about the tour.
