Diver Ed's Dive-in Theater Boat Cruise is an underwater extravaganza the whole family will love!

After his first breath underwater at the age of 16, Ed knew he would be a diver. Since then he has logged over 35,000 hours diving for fun, commercially, conducting research, and hand-harvesting scallops.

Diver Ed attended College of the Atlantic, in Bar Harbor, where he studied marine sciences. After graduating Ed worked as a fisherman, marine ecologist for the Smithsonian Institution, Harbormaster for the Town of Bar Harbor, and founded the League of Underwater Superheroes.

In 2000 Ed took his passion for the undersea world and started the Dive-in Theater. Ed's wife, Evil Edna, is the boat's captain. Their Newfoundland dogs accompany them on every cruise.

"Diver Ed is...a wild-haired cross between John Belushi and Jacques Cousteau whose idea of fun is kissing live sea creatures and over-inflating his scuba suit so amusing noises blow out the neck hole." -- Family Fun Magazine

My husband and I took this trip. Although, we enjoyed the trip very much. The best part was to see the interactions with Diver Ed and Captain Evil and the children that were on the boat. They made the trip interesting and fun for EVERYONE! This trip is a MUST if you have children on vacation with you but also fun for couples too. Since the National Park was closed we did not book the trip geared for adults but we still really had a great time.

We had a great time on the Diver Ed boat. We got to see lots of critters from the bottom of the ocean. There was a fair amount of potty humor which I am not a fan of, but that is just personal preference.

Dive-In Theater - Good Value

Attended: Dive-in Theater with Acadia National Park Ranger
 
Although it rained some, the tour was well worth the price. Ranger Todd made the journey to the dive location pleasurable and humorous. At the dive site, Diver Ed and his assistant provided very interesting aspects of what he was doing, or going to do. The live camera video was especially interesting and seemed to captivate the interest of the youngsters on-board.

If you are interested in simply "boating around", take a different tour, but if you want to see what's below you, then this is the tour for you. And be sure to bring rain gear!

The day was cold and rainy with whipping wind...........yet the time spent was really wonderful! Good for families as well as couples. Ed and his partner put in tons of energy to make sure the trip is informative as well as hands on. It is worth doing!
