Hey it is a lobster boat. Capt. John does all the narrating and his mate helps steer the boat on occasion. He brought us out to Egg Rock Island to see the seals and bald eagles as well as the Lighthouse. We have taken this trip twice in the past 6 years.... both times the seals were on the windward...

I easily reserved this excursion on line and over the phone. We were coming off the Regal Princess cruise ship via tender and received good instructions on finding the LuLu from the tender dock. Princess offered the same excursion in the afternoon for $59.95 pp. We opted for the 10:00 am trip direct with LuLu for $32 pp (senior rate).... More

The two hour tour on Lulu was enlightening and fun! Captain John shares his vast knowledge about lobsters and the lobster industry with a twist of humor. I'll never look at a lobster the same again. In addition to pulling lobster traps we got a close up view of Egg Rock Lighthouse and seals playing in the sea. It was... More

This was such a fun and unique trip! Jim is obviously the Lobster guru of the area as he gives lectures all over the country about lobsters. I was impressed at how the state of Maine controls the lobster fishing business. He started by telling us the history of the area and the lobster industry and how things have changed.... More

Can't recommend this tour enough! Captain John was an excellent tour guide and is super knowledgable when it comes to anything lobster related and plenty of other things besides. I understand he also tours around the world giving lectures too... So taking one of his boat trips whilst you are visiting Bar Harbor is a must!

We thoroughly enjoyed the two-hour lobster boat tour on the Lulu. The captain was very knowledgeable on a number of topics and enthusiastically shared his stories and experiences in a highly entertaining way. We watched seals at play and learned much about the life history of lobsters and lobster fishery. The experience was truly a living classroom and really a... More

Great way to spend an afternoon! We were taken to see the seals, Egg lighthouse and how to pull up lobster traps along with tons of wonderful information on lobsters, crabs, the industry. Amazing views of the coast. Captain John was entertaining and full of interesting information.

We had a great time. Well worth the price the captain of the boat was very nice and professional. Trip is very informative, honestly I didn't know there was so much to learn about Lobsters. People should go on this tour before ordering any lobsters in town. I don't want to spoil the trip for you but trust me on... More

We had a blast out on Lulu's Lobster Boat! We learned so much, and had such a fun time doing it! Great scenery, getting to see the cute seals, learning more than I can remember about lobsters, conservancy and how the lobstermen make their living. I will never eat lobster the same way again!! I highly recommend this tour!!

The Lulu Lobster Boat Tour was the best. The boat was comfortable and easy to board. Captain John's presentation was entertaining and informative. He was able to reach people of all ages and levels. He is doing a great job of preserving Maine's lobster population.
