Captain John was lots of fun. Little kids get bored halfway through, wouldn't recommend anyone younger than 6. Got to see the seals pretty close. Captain John explains the life, conservation and catching of lobsters.

Do not miss the opportunity to learn about the Maine lobster industry in a fun and informative way. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Bar Harbor. Worth every penny. The other reviews speak for themselves. Book ahead online if you can. Follow directions for attire.

This was a great trip. Fun and educational. We got to see seals, a light house, and of course, lobster. Captain John makes sure everyone gets to see everything, no matter where you're sitting, and he is a wealth of knowledge. Definitely recommend.

My group ( me, husband, 8 month old twins, and grandparents) called to see about the seal and lobster tour. We had already talked to a couple other tours but heard lulus was great. Every other group said babies were more than welcome with strollers or carriers or whatever and were very accommodating. When we called lulus to find out... More

You see these fancy yachts and then you see the LULULOBSTERBOAT boat and you think, "oh man, a, I being ripped off?!". No worries! It'll be well worth it. They provide everything you need to be comfortable, they take you to see come cool things and, most importantly, you'll learn a bunch about lobsters! Enjoy.... Worth the $33!

I really enjoyed this tour despite the chilly weather & fog. I never realized the effort & labor that goes in to lobstering! Bring a jacket, it gets cold on the bay!

We did the lobster boat tour with two young kids (ages 7 and 4). We all learned a lot and thought this was a really well-organized tour. I appreciated the email a few days prior to let us know that it might be difficult for our 4 year old to sit through the tour since it's mostly talking and geared... More

TIP: You must arrive MORE than 30 mins. prior to the trip. The boat was comfortable, sea bands were provided as well as beverages. The trip was so interesting and informative. I am glad that we were able to go.

Not only was this tour extremely educational but it was entertaining as well! We learned so much about the lobster industry and lobsters in general! It didn't hurt that the weather was absolutely perfect. Our only regret was that we did not take the tour before eating lobsters in Bar Harbor!

Come see the seals swimming by the light house. Also saw a bald eagle on the light house. When they pulled the lobster trap it had four lobster and a crab. Captain John is quite a character and will keep the sight seers entertained. You will learn a treasure chest of info from John. He enjoys sharing his knowledge of... More
