It was a great adventure. The lighthouse and viewing of the seals in their natural habitat was awesome. Getting to see lobster traps pulled up and the explanation of the lobster fishing industry was awesome. I would recommend this for anyone. Might be a bit lengthy for little ones. Kudos to the Captain for having binoculars and motion sickness bracelets... More

A tour on the Lulu is a must for visitors to the Bar Harbor area. Captain John is very knowledgeable and did a fantastic job of explaining the lobster fishery, sustainability practices in Maine, as well as the anatomy, and molting habits of these fascinating crustaceans. We each had a chance to see, touch and even challenge ourselves to determine... More

This boat tour was an excellent introduction to lobstering. Captain John was a wonderful lecturer who appeals to all age groups. I learned a lot about the industry and the requirements for attaining a lobstering license. A very pleasant excursion.

We booked this last minute based on a recommendation from another family we met. Luckily we are able to get in! It was a lot of fun to see the seals and especially learn about the lobsters. The captain was extremely knowledgeable, and actually pulled up some lobster traps to show us how it is done. I would highly recommend... More

The captain is very knowledgeable, not only about lobsters, but about other animals, Mt. Desert Island, and Maine in general. We learned a lot on our cruise. Additionally we got to see a beautiful sunset as the fog lifted for the first time in days!

We visited Bar Harbor and went on the LuLu Lobster Boat with our 12, 14 and 15 year old kids and their grandmother. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. We learned a great deal about lobstering and the local area, while enjoying the beautiful scenery from a different perspective of being out in Frenchman's Bay. Captain John was great!
