We loved this tour. The scenery was amazing! We saw harbor seals and bald eagles and a beautiful old lighthouse. We learned about lobsters, lobstering and conservation. Captain John kept my 7 and 11 year old interested the entire trip! Highly recommend this tour if you are in Bar Harbor!

We took this tour as part of our hotel package, and we thought at first we probably wouldn't have spent $35 per person for a two hour boat ride. Were we wrong! It was fun and educational and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Our lobsterman John was humorous throughout the trip, giving us history of various points of interest we passed,... More

This is a very interesting tour. You learn all about lobsters and conservation measures in place to keep the lobster industry flourishing in Maine. Although very educational it is fun and entertaining. The boat ride is fun and you get to see the light house(from the boat), harbor seals and two bald eagles. The price is very reasonable. I did...

We were in Bar Harbor for only a couple of days and didn't want to do a full-duration whale watch -- esp on what started out as a rainy day. I saw great reviews for Lulu Lobster boat on TA and decided to trust them. Took a ride out to one of the lighthouses and lots of seals (2 kinds)... More

Thank you very much for such a nice review. I wanted to make one small correction. My name is Captain John (not Ron). I know on the PA system it may be hard to distinguish. But this is the second review that mentioned a "Captain Ron". I conduct all the tours and there is no other Captain the runs the... More

Learning the interesting and ethical methods used to collect "legal lobsters" will make your culinary experience even more enjoyable. The tour was comfortable, fun and memorable. The Captain is extremely knowledgeable and is an excellent "public" speaker. This tour is well worth the price of admission. I would sit near the front in order to better see the trap collection...

What a fun way to lean about lobstering! Being from SC we knew nothing and now know all kinds of facts and trivia. It is a great way to spend a couple hours. We also saw seals and Egg Rock Lighthouse. Wonderful for the whole family

Knowledgeable captain in history, ecology, biology & lobstering 2 hour trip included seal watching, lighthouse, lobster fishing Captain epitome of Maine lobster captain: sketch, mannerisms, no nonsense, independent, hard working Passed out sea bands & insisted they work: no one sea sick in spite of rolling seas

LuLu Lobster boat was a fun and enjoyable experience. Great close up view of seals, and the Egg Rock Light house. Captain Ron was entertaining and knowledgeable. He showed us how to lobster fish and gave us the 101 on lobsters. Our party would do it again.
