If you're reading reviews trying to determine whether or not to splurge on Diver Ed's cruise let me just recommend that you stop what you're doing now and buy the tickets already before they're sold out!! We debated a bit on whether or not to drop $170 for our family of five to go on this cruise but let me just say, on the day after our 5:30 cruise, we do not regret that we did!! This was the first thing our children were talking about this morning and our 5 year old boy is playing Diver Ed/Mini Ed with his new Playmobil divers purchased on the Starfish Enterprise boat last night (bring $10 for this toy...your child will want it and it makes a great souvenir). We saw and carried (!!) seals on rocks (didnt touch these), sea cucumbers (and their butts lol), sand dollars, sea stars, crabs, lobster, blood stars, etc. Diver Ed is very personable (shook everyone's hand THREE times) and hilarious (reminiscent of Chris Farley Tommy Boy humor). After diving for animals he came back up onto the boat (with help from the children) and let the children blow up his diving suits so he was huge...hilarious. SO FUNNY and SO EDUCATIONAL. LOVED IT!!!!!

Diver Ed's Dive in Theater is a fantastic family fun experience. This was our third trip and it just gets better. Diver Ed has a bigger boat and better camera than a few year ago (due to a storm that sunk his prior boat) which has further improved the experience. With Diver Ed you get to experience the sea life living in vivid color as he brings a video camera down 50 or so feet. Sea cucumbers, lobsters, crabs, sand dollars, sea urchins and more... He also brings a wide variety of sea life back up to the surface for you to experience first hand. Kids love the interactivity and high energy of Diver Ed and also get chance to kiss a sea cucumber! Lots of fun, lots to learn and a highlight of visiting Bar Harbor.

A highlight of our trip to Bar Harbor. We all enjoyed it, our family incl ages 9,14,16, and 72. Diver Ed and Captain Evil have a great thing going. Bonus was taking the trip with the NPS park rangers.

Whether you're a child or an adult, this attraction is one of the best organized trips that does not include whales. Both Edna and Ed's commentaries were insightful and funny - and a great above and below water experience. Though Diver Ed was the only one physically underwater, the clarity of the images we saw aboard the boat made us feel as though we were down there too. Great job!!
