“Best trip of the island”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

My family and I grew up in Maine and I am a certified diver but we all enjoyed and learned on the trip while having fun and laughing on Frenchman's Bay. Diver Ed, Captain Evil and the rest of the League of Underwater Super Hero's made a challenging and difficult job look easy with and sense of humor and warm and genuine wonder that is missing from most vacation experiences. Half the passengers were repeats some for the third and forth times. Pricey but well worth it!

“Unique, educational experience”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

If you visit Mt. Desert Island, this is must-do, especially for kids do all ages. We had so much fun enjoying views of Acadia, on the way to the dive site. Diver Ed and his lovely family made us all feel special. It well exceeded our expectations. He dove while his wife gave a comical narrative,then brought the sea life up to the boat and set up a few touch tanks...sea stars, seas urchins, sea cucumbers, lobsters, crabs etc. At points Ed had us laughing so much we were in tears. Don't miss this!

The whole crew was amazing, boat was very entertaining and informational. Ed is amazing with kids, and pulls off goofy well. By far best thing to do in bar harbor. You must get on board!

“Crazy but fun for the kids”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Ed and his team including two dogs will keep you entertained. Very interactive and it will last around two hours including the boat journeys. The quality and detail of footage was pretty amazing...
A refreshingly simple, effective and fun presentation style. We loved it!

“Amazing outing for the kids...and parents!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Extremely educational and so entertaining. Diver Ed and his crew are true professionals. Take binoculars if you have them handy. In addition to all the sea creatures we got to see and touch, we saw a bald eagle on a nearby island.
