season update
TBA May 20

The Dive-In Theater will not be operating during the 2020 season. Our dock at College of the Atlantic is undergoing major construction. We are currently exploring alternate plans for a fun and adventurous summer. We love our fans and will be posting exciting and crazy updates on the Dive-In Theater Facebook page. We miss all of you and hope to see you next year!

The Starfish Enterprise is a very stable 51‑foot, 70‑passenger U.S. Coast Guard certified vessel specifically built for the Dive‑in Theater by Diver Ed and Captain Evil. The boat has a LCD projector shining on a 6‑foot screen to show you the picture from Diver Ed’s video camera while he dives below. There are enough Coast Guard required life jackets available on board for each passenger.

Faster than a speeding starfish, able to leap (onto) lobster boats in a single bound, members of The League of Underwater Superheroes stand ready to explore the depths of Frenchman Bay, clean up the underwater landscape and have a whole lot of fun. The “league” is actually a scuba diving club, the brainchild of Eddie “Diver Ed” Monat. Yes, that’s scuba diving. In Maine.

Most of the inaugural league members were Diver Ed's students. “It’s just an excuse to pull people together who want to dive,” he says. Unlike many scuba clubs, there’s no fee to join the League. Volunteer work is standard operating procedure for a member of the League of Underwater Superheroes. Every year the League performs a harbor cleanup. They have also helped with the Eel Grass Project sponsored by the MDI Biolab. More info
