“Underwater world Maine: At Diver Ed’s Dive-In Theater, visitors aboard the Starfish Enterprise watch as marine biologist Eddie Monat plumbs the depths of the Gulf of Maine for natural treasures with an underwater camera, while his wife, Edna – no kidding – narrates topside. The real fun begins when Eddie brings sea cucumbers, lobsters, and other creatures on board for close-ups.
