Don't not go.

Live, laugh, love, whatever. Kids loved it. Unique approach to a local boat tour. We all learned something. Everyone was nice. Not much else to say - just go.

Diver Ed and his shipmates were absolutely fabulous. You couldn't hire anyone to do a better job as a front man than Diver Ed. He is hilarious and makes the experience unforgettable. To top it off, he adds just enough of an educational theme to make it even more noteworthy. He and his wife play off each other really well... More

A great and hilarious trip. Not to be missed. The best show in Bar Harbour and incredibly educational - although the kids don't know it! Five stars.

I saw Diver Ed and his team on Wednesday, 8/24/16. It was an awesome and fun experience for everyone since we got to see him dive down and pick up various sea creatures for everyone to learn about. Ed was a very funny guy and I think he did great entertaining everyone on board. I learned a lot myself even... More

Diver Ed and the crew do a great job engaging with the kids, keeping the adults laughing, and teaching about the underwater critters. Definitely a must-do adventure for families with young kids.

I highly recommend doing Diver Ed's Dive-in theater if you have kids! He is so good with all the kids and they get to learn all about little sea creatures. Everyone got to touch a lobster, a crab, a starfish and a sea cucumber to name a few. Our kids ranged from 2 to 6 and they all had a... More

This tour is perhaps the best activity for children in the area, outside of the park itself. We booked the tour based on exceptional reviews and it still surpassed expectation. Educational and funny for children as well as adults, the tour was entertaining for everyone in my family. Diver Ed and his wife, Captain Evil are a delight! My kids... More

Diver Ed is a hoot and the kids love him! He dives down into the water and uses a live video feed to show the kids 'up top' what he sees as he moves through the water. He brings sea critters top side for the kids to see and handle before returning the critters back to the water. Hands on... More

This was one of our favorite places on our Maine trip. Very family friendly. Diver Ed is really entertaining and great with the kids. My son actually smiled and laughed the whole time!
