This was a fantastic trip for my son (9) and myself. After a long, frigid whale watching trip earlier in the week, I was concerned that this would be another excruciating wait for a questionable payoff, during which I tried to keep my son's boredom from becoming a headache for other passengers. Boy was I ever wrong! From the get-go... More

I agree with everyone else here - it was so much fun! Two quick notes about things I was worried about beforehand: Age ranges - I was a little worried about how my smaller children (ages 5, 3 and 1.5) would do with a bunch of older children since most reviews talked about kids in the 8-10 range. But it... More

Ed and his wife could be a comedy team! The trip was a lot of fun for everyone. Would suggest calling if mobility impaired because of the Step ramp to get to the boat. Levi the water rescue dog was so friendly. Highly recommend for any family or adults.

My husband and I took a boat ride with Diver Ed and Captain Evil and their dogs two days ago. Although this is geared for kids, we both had a truly great time. Very educational and fun at the same time. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Everyone on board had a great time. Diver Ed is a... More

This is an incredible experience! Unique, educational, entertaining & fun! We enjoyed it just as much as our granddaughter did! The special audio & video lets you experience Diver Ed on the ocean floor as he gathers sea creatures & brings them onboard for 'touch tank' hands-on learning! (They are safely returned to the sea.) Diver Ed & his wife... More

We've just visited Acadia during the memorial day weekend 2015. We took the Diver's Ed first tour of this season! The first tour got cancelled because of windy weather. They did an excellent job calling us well ahead of time to let us know about the change of schedule. The tour itself was really fun for kids. They loved to... More

So much fun, well worth the money! Diver Ed was great with the kids and even made all the adults laugh! His wife "Captain Evil" is very sweet despite her name :) and she also did a wonderful job! Can't wait to do it again!

This experience was magic! Diver Ed & Captain Evil are fun, informative and lovers of the sea. They inspired my kid and myself to learn more about the ocean ... and to take up scuba again. This is our favorite attraction in Bar Harbor, by far! Worth every penny.
