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.

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.

We really enjoyed our tour. We went in Oct., and it was very cold. We did learn a lot about lobsters.

This was a great experience! I was a bit skeptical at first but this was definitely fun. At first sight I thought Capt. John was just a big burly Lobsterman, however, he is an extremely knowledgeable and very personable individual. Capt. John loves what he does and it shows! The tour started off with a bit of a steam towards... More

My finace and I took this trip on the last day of the season. We've been on the whale watching and nature cruises offered in Bar Harbor and this was priced much less than those. Additionally you didn't have to pay to rent binoculars like you do on the other cruises. Ride takes you out to the lighthouse to see... More

I will be honest... I was skeptical at first... Especially since I was in Acadia specifically to photograph the foliage... Man was I wrong to doubt the other reviews!!! This could not have been a more enjoyable AND educational experience. Captain John was both entertaining and extremely knowledgeable!! I learned many things that I did not know about Maine, Bar...

Loved this!!! Captain John is very knowledgable and a great speaker. Extremely engaging - good with kids and adults. We learned a lot of interesting things and saw lobster, harbor seals, a bald eagle and a live sand dollar which was an extra bonus. It was cold on the water, but we were prepared thanks to the detailed and helpful... More

We took the Whale Watching Tour which was great for seeing whales but we couldn't hear anything the guide was saying and the seals were pretty far away from the boat. On Lulu's lobster boat, we got a phenomenal educational experience and in addition to seeing lobsters got a great view of the seals which hang out around the Lighthouse.... More

This tour was extremely educational. I really enjoyed learning so much about the lobster industry. While it was pretty cold out on the water, the tour, guide, and learnings made it all with it. It gave me such an appreciation for this Maine staple. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn about one of Maine's most important...and... More
