We did the lobster boat thing with low expectations. The crew and captain were very nice, conversational and educational. The kids loved seeing the animals and catching the lobster. I would recommend this as a nice tourist activity.

We booked the 1 pm tour there were about 30 people on the boat. Captain John was awesome he was funny great with the kids and very knowledgeable about the area and lobstering. We had a great time and the price of the tour was a great value. I recommend this highly.

My sister had visited Bar Harbor last year and encouraged us to take this tour because she loved it. She was right! Everyone was great and we learned a lot about lobsters! Top 2 of our favorite things we did on this vacation!

My family of 4 really enjoyed this tour (kids ages 9 and 11). It was beautiful being out on the water, and seeing the seals and lighthouse. Then we got to see lobster traps pulled in and learned a lot about lobster's life, rules about trapping, and conservation. As a biologist, I was impressed on the explanation and emphasis on... More

On an 88 degree sunny day in Bar Harbor, nothing better than getting out on the cool water. The surprise is that Captain John educates and entertains so well that a 2-hour trip was too short! Bar Harbor fun facts, seals and seabirds and a lobster trap pull are among the many high points. The crew offered anti-motion sickness wristbands... More

We took this tour with our 11 and 14 year old kids. It was a fantastic tour for all if us. Capt John was extremely knowledgeable about everything- the lobster industry, the area, everything. He also has a great sense of humor. I was impressed the measures he takes to keep everyone comfortable on the boat. Everyone is offered motion... More

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

Thank you, UtahandOhio, for taking the time to write a very nice review. I just want to clarify one of your comments - my vessel is equipped with a marine head (restroom). It is located in the cabin separate from the seating area. There is also a restroom on the dock that we encourage our passengers to use prior to... More

The Captain did a nice job of narrating and keeping us entertained. You learn a lot fist hand and leave... More

We parked at the Acadia visitor center, caught the free shuttle to Bar Harbor and avoided the limited parking available in Bar Harbor. LuLu is a short walk from the bus stop. We saw bald eagles, harbor seals and grey seals on our tour. The captain explained everything you would want to know about lobsters, lobster fishing and conservation of... 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
