We sail from the heart of the Bar Harbor waterfront at the beautiful Harborside Hotel & Marina. Come experience what is sure to be a highlight of your time in Maine!

What We Offer

Lobster Fisherman

Lobster Fishing

During your cruise on Lulu, experience a sample of the life and work of the Maine lobstermen (or lobsterwomen!). Watch a demonstration of how lobster traps are hauled. We’ll describe 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?



Cruising on Lulu is like making the prettiest coastal Maine postcard come to life. See different privately-owned islands up close. 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 cruise very close to Egg Rock Light, one of Maine’s most picturesque lighthouses.


Seal Watching

Seal 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.

Excellent Tour!

The driver and the guide explained about the lobstering industry and we learned many facts. We went by Egg Rock Lighthouse and saw the seals sunning themselves. They pulled up two traps and found lobsters for us to see and pass around. The time went quickly, but it was a splendid way to spend the afternoon!

Totally Worth It!

Our tour guide (Galen) was awesome. He was so informative about the lobster regulations and very entertaining at the same time. He has a great sense of humor that made the tour tons of fun. Definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn about lobsters!

Don't Miss This!

We had an absolutely wonderful time! We were a little concerned about how cold it might be in October, but we were so interested in what was going on that it was no bother, plus they offer us all blankets! Our tour guides were phenomenal and we learned a great deal about lobstering, but also about the area while taking in the scenery.

The trip was really well worth it! Got to see a lighthouse, male bald eagle and seals sleeping and swimming all around. Then they pull lobster traps up and the boat's guide gives you the whole history of the lobster and all the in's and out's of being a Captain of a lobster boat. Have to do this trip if you visit Bar Harbor, Maine!
