Nature Cruise

Trip time: 2 hours

Join us for a spectacular nature cruise among the islands and along the shores of beautiful Acadia National Park. We'll cruise past some of the most breathtaking scenery in New England. From the shear granite cliffs of Great Head to smooth rock beaches, you'll see a rugged maritime landscape etched by glaciers and battered by sea & wind. Here the ocean teems with life; seals raise their pups on ledges, eagles build enormous nests, and pods of porpoise chase schools of herring. We stay in the protected waters of Frenchman Bay, home to the Abanaki Indians for 1000's of years, and discovered by French explorers Champlain and Cadillac in the 1600's. We view magnificent summer homes along what was millionaires row during the golden age of Bar Harbor. Since 1875, Egg Rock Island Lighthouse has served as a sentinel to mariners; today it is part of the Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge and an important stop on our tour. Your cruise will feature a professional naturalist who is excited to share interesting stories of natural and human history with you.
