Took a sunset flight for 50 minutes and it happened to be a super moon night also. Jeremy was our pilot and he gave us a great tour and lots of information and history of the Mount Desert Island area. There are different prices for the time in air and we chose a flight that took us to see six... More

My son had bought me a "Discover Flying" experience at Scenic Flights of Acadia. After a clearly-presented 30-minute ground briefing by Randy, my pilot, I climbed into the cockpit and off we went. Randy was a great teacher, very competent and experienced, and instructed me from his side of the cockpit as I ascended, descended, performed turns around a couple... More

Top notch all the way! Great customer service from reservations to the pilot! I highly recommend touring the coast with Scenic Flights of Acadia. It was worth every penny!

Great romantic flight over the scenic area, both sat in the back (by choice) and were treated to a very great flight. Beautiful and perfect. Did the acadia loop. Did it on a whim on the drive home. Very happy

This was definitely the highlight of our trip. Jim, our pilot, was very friendly and kept a nice balance between pointing out the sights and allowing us to enjoy the view. He was also very funny, cracking jokes to keep us entertained! The company offers a good variety of tours, depending on what you would like to see as well... More

The best way to experience the beauty of Acadia without dealing with traffic. The islands and mountains are beautiful.

I visited Acadia during the Govt Shutdown and it was a bummer for me as i planned for this trip way back and took the time off to make it happen. I didn't want to cancel my trip just because the park was shutdown. I chose to visit Acadia by Air (and Water!) while I was here. They have a... More

My husband and I arrived in Bar Harbor on the day the Federal Government shutdown commenced! Trip had been planned for over 6 months, so we were determined to make the best of it, despite Acadia National Park being closed! Therefore, we chose to do the "all of acadia" tour to allow us to see the Park from another angle!... More
