Great Tour, but it does get cold in the fall!

I really enjoyed this tour. I went at the end of October, so I wish I was wearing an extra layer. I am happy I brought gloves! It is really chilly once you get pretty far out... read more

I really enjoyed this tour. I went at the end of October, so I wish I was wearing an extra layer. I am happy I brought gloves! It is really chilly once you get pretty far out there. The captain has a good sense of humor. We saw a female lobster, male lobster, sand dollar, seals, and a bald eagle.... More

This lobster boat tour was recommended to us and we are so glad we made a reservation. The weather was glorious and we learned so much about the area, lobstermen, and of course lobsters! Captain John was really knowledgeable and entertaining. He actually pulled up some lobster pots and showed us how they are caught and which ones are kept.... More

He was easy to listen to and made sure everyone understood was he showing and telling!! He pulled a lobster trap and it had three Google sized lobsters in it! A... More

This tour took us to catch lobster for show and tell and to the Egg Harbor Lighthouse which was a highlight for me. There were many animals to see on the island as well. The Captain was funny and informative! A must do!

The reviews on Trip Advisor caused me to book this trip and the reviewers were so right. This is an awesome tour. Captain John is fascinating. He knows lots about Maine, lighthouses, lobsters, area commerce, etc. We took it all in. He took us out to Egg Rock Light and its harbor seals and gave us lots of opportunities for... More

We took the two hour lobster boat tour to learn about lobsters are caught. We also saw harbor seals and the Bar Harbor light house. The best time to see the seals is at low tide when they are sunning themselves on the rocks. John, the boat's captain, is very knowledgeable about lobster biology and the Maine lobster industry. He... More

Our family certainly enjoyed this tour...we were originally disappointed that our whale watching tour was cancelled due to weather. We did this as alternative, and we are so glad it worked out like this! The Captain was entertaining...boat was clean, staff was professional. Tour was informative, and our 12 yr old loved it!

We had been in Bar Harbor before and done the usual tours. I read about this on Trip Advisor and decided from the reviews to try it. Wow! What a great experience. I now know more than 98% of the population about lobsters. Captain John is very knowledgeable and goes out of his way to share his knowledge with everyone... More
