Lobster Fishing

Lobster fishing with Lulu Lobster BoatDuring your cruise on Lulu, experience a sample of the life and work of the Maine lobsterman. Watch as Captain John demonstrates how lobster traps are hauled. The Captain describes all the parts of a lobster trap and how the lobsters (and many other sea creatures) find their way to the bait inside. Learn all about the anatomy and life cycle of the Maine lobster. For example, did you know that lobsters smell with their leg hairs? Enjoy Captain John’s entertaining and informative style as he explains things like lobster boxing. Don’t know what that is? Take the tour on Lulu and find out!

Seal Watching

Seal watching with Lulu Lobster BoatSeal watching is the best on Lulu. Unlike the larger tour boats, Lulu can slowly and quietly approach the rock ledges where the seals rest at the lower tides. They think Lulu is just another of the hundreds of lobster boats they see every day. So, they are not frightened back into the water and remain on the rocks while Lulu’s passengers delight in watching their activities.


Sightseeing with Lulu Lobster BoatCruising on Lulu is like making the prettiest coastal Maine postcard come to life. Captain John leisurely guides Lulu through Frenchman Bay. See different privately-owned islands close up. Observe sea birds, bald eagles and other marine wildlife in their natural environment. View beautiful summer cottages along the shores of Mount Desert Island. When sea conditions permit, many tours feature cruising very close to Egg Rock Light (shown left), one of Maine’s most picturesque lighthouses, as Captain John discusses lighthouse history.

History & Folklore

Share Captain John’s interest in local history and folklore as he tells stories and anecdotes about the area – some factual and some legend.


Host your nautical-themed wedding on the LuluWhy not “tie the knot” or renew your vows on Lulu?
Getting married on a Maine lobster boat in beautiful Bar Harbor will leave you with very special memories to cherish for a very long time. Only your closest friends and family will be celebrating your joyful event on Lulu. Keep in mind that weather can be a factor. If you need a “Plan B” (and we highly recommend one), we can refer you to very attractive indoor options for the ceremony. We can suggest options for your reception facilities and lodging, as well.
