If you are with small children then don't miss Diver Ed. What a great and unique experience he and his crew give. Awesome perspective for all the sea creatures you can find just off the coast of Bar Harbor.

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.
