I took this tour with my mom and grandma in July. We all liked the tour. I thought Captain John was funny and nice. He joked that a lobster had rabies because it had foam on its mouth and so he said it had been bitten by a dogfish. He is nice because he answered questions and he gives out... More

The excursion is a good value and was informative. It was interesting to hear from a working lobster fisherman and to see how they pull traps. The water was rough that day, but they offer free anti motion sickness bracelets you can use and they totally work, so use it even if you think you will be fine!

Captain John is a real character! We learned so much about lobster anatomy and conservation and in such an entertaining way. He pulled up one of his traps, pulled out a good sized lobster and walked around the boat showing us parts of the lobster and talking about all the issues relating to lobster catching. We passed closely to a... More

My husband took me to Bar Harbor for several days to celebrate my big 40th birthday this past summer. (Was our first time traveling north of NYC) Being in such a beautiful place helped ease the pain of turning 40! (haha) Lulu's Lobster boat was one of the highlights of our trip! Captain John was so amazing and knowledgable. Definitely... More

If you only have one thing to do in Bar Harbor - do this ! Yes, you get a pleasant boat ride where you see seals and beautiful scenery, but the best part of this trip is the educational presentation by the Captain where you learn all about the lobster business. He is entertaining as well as informative. You won't... More

LuLu Lobster and Lighthouse tour out of Bar Harbor Maine is a very enjoyable journey. Capt John does an excellent job of explaining the locals sights, sounds and culture. He's more than will to make recommendations, listen to your questions and he makes sure you understand what he is telling you. I very enjoyable and insightful tour.

Captain John is a veteran fisher, and extremely knowledgeable about not only the lobster business, but many forms of sea life and conservation. I learned more about lobsters than I thought there was to know - all delivered in an understandable and witty manner. The tour itself affords great looks at Bar Harbor and surrounding islands, selected wildlife and some... More

We enjoyed our excursion on the Lulu Lobster boat. The captain John was very educational and funny. We were able to see lots of seals and birds, including the biggest Bald Eagle I've ever seen perched on the dormer of the lighthouse. The lobster trap he pulled up was full of beautiful lobsters! We were fortunate enough to have picture... More
