“More Than Just A Boat Ride”
Review of Lulu Lobster Boat

Lulu Lobster Boat
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 October 2017

Having traveled to Maine a number of times in the past for business, this was my first trip purely for pleasure. We were on a cruise and stopped in Bar Harbor for the day. Lulu Lobster Boat was our only excursion and well worth it. The day was cold, rainy and the fog lifted only occasionally so our enjoyment of all the sites was hampered. The boat is only partially enclosed so dress warm if you have similar weather conditions. In spite of this we thoroughly enjoyed the trip and learned a great deal about Bar Harbor and the lobster industry in the USA as a whole. I cannot say what the sights may have been like had we experienced better weather. In spite of that this was still a very worthwhile experience and would recommend.

Thank Doug K

I never thought I would enjoy a lobster boat tour but I can honestly say I did. The team did a superior job with this tour. I learned more than I ever need to know about lobsters, especially how to pick the best one to eat! They pull up a couple of traps and pass around the lobsters. Seeing the seals was an added treat. The boat is covered & has plastic windows but there is a large opening by the driver so they can pull up the traps so air does enter the boat. They provide a lap blanket if you need one. Such an entertaining tour as well as educational. You won't be disappointed with this tour. Book online early- don't wait until you are there. The tour we took in the afternoon was sold out. Think there were 2 cruise ships in port that day.

We had a delightful afternoon spending a couple of hours on the Lulu lobster boat. The guide did an outstanding job explaining what we were seeing and doing. He made it enjoyable for all ages. We thought the kids on board had a fabulous time as he let them hold lobsters and talk about them. This was a fun experience for us.

The Lulu Lobster Boat was a wonderful experience. We had an excellent tour guide who taught us about lobster fishing including some great stories. I wasn't ready to handle a lobster but I did it! They catch and release all the lobsters even if they are the correct size (which they taught us how to measure.) This is a must for families. Kids would love it. We are a middle aged couple and we loved it!
