NEW Boat Tour Excursion!
Be inspired and awed as you view and photograph Acadia National Park from the comfort of the ocean. This 2.75-hour boat cruise on the Gulf of Maine includes Acadia National Park, local wildlife, historic lighthouses and the wild landscapes of the Schoodic Peninsula. Here bald eagles build huge stick nests in red oak trees, peregrine falcons build scrapes on cliff edges, harbor seals pup on seaweed covered ledges, and harbor porpoise patrol for schools of mackerel, herring, and squid.
Join a friendly crew, an expert nature guide, and a park-ranger guide aboard a comfortable jet-powered catamaran that travels through the sheltered scenic waters of Frenchman Bay and along the shores of Acadia. Discover interesting information about the region’s human and geological history. A mammoth 47,000-acres of granite peaks and glacially carved shores, this is America’s oldest national park east of the Mississippi.
Photograph Bar Harbor’s waterside mansions and two lighthouses: Winter Harbor Light and Egg Rock Lighthouse dating back to 1875 which is part of the Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Marvel at the 110-foot-high Otter Cliffs, then cross the bay and follow the remote eastern shores of Schoodic Peninsula, where you’ll see a spruce forest, pink granite shores, eagles, and porpoise.
