This was alot of fun. My kids and I really enjoyed ourselves. It was great to see the creatures at the bottom of the ocean and then get to touch them. Especially the lobsters.

My whole family is coming to Bar Harbor end of July 2017. Grandchildren will be 6,8,12,13,15,17 but we have one that will only be 18 months there are 16 of us. Is it appropriate for the youngest to come along on this adventure?

Diver Ed handles the animals and so do the children very kindly and safely. He places them back in the water afterwards.
