An adventure to remember! Head offshore in search of whales while your guide educates you about the whales and other species of the Gulf of Maine.
The Nature Cruise is the perfect way to experience the coastal beauty of Acadia National Park and Frenchman Bay!
We’ll cruise past some of the most breathtaking scenery in New England. From the shear granite cliffs 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; harbor and grey seals on ledges, nesting bald eagles, and pods of harbor porpoise chase schools of herring. This cruise provides opportunities to see a variety of seabird species such as gulls, northern gannets, double crested cormorants, black guillemots, and eider ducks!
We stay in the protected waters of Frenchman Bay, which is rich in history-home to the Wabanaki for thousands of years, explored by Europeans as early as the 1600’s, and eventually settled by the late 1700’s. Your cruise will feature a professional naturalist who is excited to share interesting stories of natural and human history of the area including information about the wildlife and Acadia. Our knowledgeable guides and crew are happy to answer your all your questions!
Binoculars and/or a long zoom lens are recommended for viewing wildlife such as seals and eagles.
Dogs are welcome aboard the nature cruise!
