We went for this because of all the 5* reviews and they are fully justified. The trip was great fun, especially for my two girls aged 8 and 10, but my wife and I both enjoyed it enormously as well.

My whole family is coming to Bar Harbor end of July 2017. Grandchildren will be 6,8,12,13,15,17 but we have one that will only be 18 months there are 16 of us. Is it appropriate for the youngest to come along on this adventure?

Diver Ed handles the animals and so do the children very kindly and safely. He places them back in the water afterwards.
