Lulu Lobster Boat, Bar Harbor

#3 of 344 in Outdoors in Maine
Boat Tour · Outdoor Activity
Experience a sample of the life and work of the Maine lobsterman (or woman!). Watch a demonstration of how lobster traps are hauled. You'll learn about all the parts of a lobster trap and how the lobsters (and many other sea creatures) find their way to the bait inside. Find out about the anatomy and life cycle of the Maine lobster. You’ll also enjoy seal watching onboard. Unlike the larger tour boats, Lulu can slowly and quietly approach the rock ledges where the seals rest and play. They think Lulu is just another of the hundreds of lobster boats they see every so are not apt to be frightened and remain on the rocks and swimming in the ocean while Lulu’s passengers delight in watching their activities. 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 feature cruising very close to Egg Rock Light, one of Maine’s most picturesque lighthouses. A trip on the Lulu is sure to be a highlight of your time in Maine!
