Reviewed 11 August 2012

Diver Ed was so many things I don't know where to begin! He was personable, extremely funny, entertaining, excellent with the kids! Very educational too! The day before we went to Diver Eds theater we went on a lobster/ seal boat ride and it was Nothing like this! My husband and I had just as much fun as the kids did! We HIGHLY recommend this to people of all ages. If u go to Bar Harbor you MUST go to Diver Ed's Dive in Theater! Worth every penny!! - The Fullerton Family from Middleton MA Aug 2012

“High value entertainment if you like booger jokes...”
Reviewed 11 August 2012 via mobile

in all fairness, the kids (9 and 11) enjoyed this trip. We parents snoozed in the back and tried to ignore the fact that the first half of the trip basically involved watching TV and listening to scratchy acoustics from 40 feet underwater. The second half involved a touch tank experience which frankly we could have done a lot more cheaply at a local museum, including the one at the meeting point for the trip, minus a couple of oversized lobsters. Ed's a funny guy but the humor is geared at the poop and booger level. if your kids insist on going, save yourself some money by sending the minimum number of adults along.

“Loved it!!!”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

Went with my aunt and had a blast... The HD tv and camera added to the fun... Loved seeing the sea creatures and diver Ed and his crew were very knowledgable about everything...the best part was he hands on learning where we could hold the sea stars and other sea creatures.. Oh and the newfies are the cutest dogs ever... Can't wait to do it again!

“Don't miss this one!”
Reviewed 7 August 2012 via mobile

Of all the family oriented side trips we did on our visit to Bar Harbor, this was by far the most entertaining and educational. Both kids and adults love it. If you can only do one paid side trip, do this!

“Fun, Educational Morning on the Water”
Reviewed 6 August 2012 via mobile

This is a one of a kind adventure. Ed and his wife are terrific. Ed is full of energy. They made sure we all had a great time, learned something and got to touch all the water creatures.
They don't have a big flashy store front. You park in the north parking lot of the College of the Atlantic (COA) and they will meet you across from the whale skull. We saw a seal and dolphin on the way back ... Way cool!
