I took the boat ride out of Stonington over to Isle au Haut. It's a nice ride across the harbor that took about 45 minutes. There was about 15 minutes to get off the boat and stretch before boarding for the trip back. You have the option of staying on the island to hike and return on a later boat,... More

What a great day - we took the 7:00 am ferry from Stonington to Isle au Haut. The ride was great and we met one gentleman who lived there that gave us the history of the island. We spent the day hiking - trails were well marked and maintained. You MUST bring everything with you from water, to food, to... More

We took the 10.30 am boat to Duck Harbour and returned on the afternoon 4.15 pm from the Town Landing. That gave us plenty of time to do the 3.8 mile Duck Harbour Trail walk between the two. The trail itself is OK, not very scenic but quite flat. However progress is slow as there are LOTS of roots, and... More

My husband and I rented bikes and took the mail boat to Isle au Haut - there are two points to get off the boat - the first stop which is in the town outside of Acadia Natl Park and at Duck Harbor which in the park. Since we decided to rent bikes our only choice was the town harbor... More

Unless you know somebody with a boat or can hire one, this is the ONLY game 'in town' to get to the Isle au Haut section of 'Acadia National Park'. They are PROs at it -- as they should be given how long they have been doing it. Very slick and professional outfit. Nearly $30 for a 6 mile, 45... More

We took the "mail boat" to Isle au Haut, but didn't do any of the other tours. It was a lovely ride, with friendly staff. We got off at Duck Harbor and then hiked back to the town. Although it was a hot day, I wish I'd had a jacket, as it did get chilly on the boat. The time... More

What a great adventure! We took the mail boat to Isle au Haut for a day of hiking and didn't know what to expect. Our captain was great; he pointed out interesting islands and facts along the way and as an added treat took us by a rock island on the way back to view dozens upon dozens of sunbathing... More
