“Loved it!!!”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Went with my aunt and had a blast... The HD tv and camera added to the fun... Loved seeing the sea creatures and diver Ed and his crew were very knowledgable about everything...the best part was he hands on learning where we could hold the sea stars and other sea creatures.. Oh and the newfies are the cutest dogs ever... Can't wait to do it again!

“Don't miss this one!”
Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

Of all the family oriented side trips we did on our visit to Bar Harbor, this was by far the most entertaining and educational. Both kids and adults love it. If you can only do one paid side trip, do this!

“Fun, Educational Morning on the Water”
Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

This is a one of a kind adventure. Ed and his wife are terrific. Ed is full of energy. They made sure we all had a great time, learned something and got to touch all the water creatures.
They don't have a big flashy store front. You park in the north parking lot of the College of the Atlantic (COA) and they will meet you across from the whale skull. We saw a seal and dolphin on the way back ... Way cool!

“Fun for any age!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

This was the hilight of our trip to Bar Harbor!!!! Don't pass this cruise up. My husband, adult son and myself went on the Park Ranger Naturalist Tour and had the best time. Diver Ed and Captain Evil were very informative and you could tell the enjoyed doing this. It was so exciting to watch Diver Ed dive to the bottom of the ocean floor with Mini Ed and look for creatures. To watch him show the creatures he found on the big screen tv as awesome. I just loved Mini Ed and all the funny things they did while looking for the sea creatures. We laughed so hard. Then they brought up all the creatures and we got to hold them. So much fun!!!!!! This tour is for any age.

“Fabulous Educational Entertainment”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Diver Ed's was the first thing we did when we arrived in Bar Harbor for our family vacation. We were worried it may be a bit too young for our 13-year-old son, but it wasn't. It was great for all of us. We learned so much and laughed very hard. Diver Ed and Mini Ed were very entertaining, as was Ed's wife, "Captain Evil". It is amazing how well they all interacted with the kids of all ages. You could tell it was there mission to teach the kids a lot about the sealife in the area and they were very successfual. We were on the last trip of the day, so some extra special treats for this trip included an extra stop to see a bunch of seals on the rocks and a beautiful sunset. We highly recommend this trip to families with kids of all ages.
