Took 3 kids ages 4, 6, and 10. Everyone had a great time. Very informative and fun for the kids. Easy parking and comfortable boat. You should call ahead to reserve your spot.

Very pleasant cruise in Frenchmen's Bay. We took the 2-hour nature cruise. We saw several bald eagles as well as other birds, but the highlight was the harbor seals at Egg Rock lighthouse. Also learned about and saw some of the islands in the bay.

We took the lobster tour as we had two small grandchildren wit us and we were not sure how they would do on a longer tour. Our captain and the naturalist were great and we saw seals, eagles and watched the process of trapping lobster....More

The crew has a lot to do with this review of the "Lobster Fishing and Seal Watching" as we enjoyed every minute of their involvement with us and the passengers. That being said, we didn't feel like passengers. The young lady guide was patient and...More

During our most recent trip to Bar Harbor we took our daughter on the lobster fishing/seal watching tour as well as the whale watch/puffin cruise. Both excursions were great. The staff is very friendly and Barbara was very knowledgeable of all the animals we saw....More
