I highly recommend this tour to everyone coming to Bar Harbor. This trip was fun and educational. I am not much into seafood but it was interesting to learn about the industry and other things about Bar Harbor!

This was a great tour! The lulu lobster tour is a must for boat tours in Bar Harbor. You can learn a lot about the lobsters and harbor seals. You will see both on this tour. Tour guide is passionate about lobsters. He even brings up a lobster trap to help explain the process. Staff was helpful with scheduling the... More

Highly recommended for those who enjoy some history and science and a little humor with their sightseeing. Mid tide tour. Saw harbor seals on the rocks and grey seals in the water (close enough but bring binoculars if you have them... they offer some on board too.) Nice views of egg rock lighthouse. Captain brings up a lobster for everyone... More

We were on the last boat of the day. There were 36 people and MOST were non-English speaking. Likewise, there were a number of children below the age of 12. as a former public school teacher, principal and current college professor, John needs some help with basic "classroom management" skills. Beginning the experience with an overload of history and science,... More

The last thing I need is help from a "former" public school teacher and it is unfortunate that we can't rate our public schools, college professors (especially those with tenure) on Trip Advisor. I have great respect for school teachers who try their best to educate children and appreciate how difficult their jobs are especially when they must deal with... More

Fun, professional and educational all in one. The Captain really cared that every single passenger enjoyed themselves. He was very knowledgeable about the history of lobster fishing in Maine. He engaged the passengers throughout his presentation and kept everything fun if not comedic. Would highly recommend this tour to everyone.

Well worth the price of admission. Captain was awesome. Nothing to do with the boat ride, but parking is limited in Bar Harbor so plan ahead.

When we first started out on the tour, we thought we'd regret it, the captain seemed gruff as he fiddled with the microphone. After he got the mic straightened out he was humorous and engaging with the passengers. He provided complimentary drinks, seasickness wristbands and binoculars for those who wanted them. Once we got out of the harbor, Captain John,... More
