Our family was first introduced to Scenic Flights of Acadia through the Make-A-Wish foundation as part of my son's wish. It was an amazing and memorable adventure for our family and the staff was especially wonderful. We just returned for our second family ride, a year later and it was just as memorable as our first flight. Our kids are... More

We did the lighthouse tour and Saul was our pilot. It was awesome and I would recommend it to everybody. The sights were amazing and we really got to see the whole park and all the smaller islands. Saul was amazing and told us history and facts we didn't know. My husband sat up there with him and they talked... More

Surprised husband for our anniversary with a scenic flight that showed us MDI from above. The pilot was excellent and knew some interesting history about sights below. The staff went above and beyond helping me select the flight and even taking the gift certificate to our hotel to surprise husband upon check-in. Several flight lengths and itineraries are available.

The thing you quickly realise about the coast of Maine is that it is anything but straight. In fact, it is only when you get high up that you can work out the lie of the land and what is an island and what is a peninsular. Last year we had taken in the views from the top of Cadillac... More

My husband & I absolutely LOVED our experience! The price was well worth it, everyone working there was very friendly and welcoming. They even happily accommodated us when we needed to switch days for our flight. Our pilot was Ben, who was very knowledgeable and fun! We did Option C, which was a flight around MDI & Acadia and Ben... More

Went for my first small airplane ride tonight, it was awesome. The weather was perfect and the Maine foliage was in full color. My husband, son and I went, it was a full load they only hold 3 passengers, but on the good side you get to choose the date and time you want to go, they work on your... More

We had scheduled our Lighthouse Flight several weeks prior to our visit to Acadia National Park and were disappointed when staff called to cancel the flight due to bad weather. However, they called the next day and juggled their schedule to accommodate ours - we were going home the following day and had a tight schedule. Yay! They were able... More

We did the sunset flight and the timing was perfect and so was our pilot Ben! He was informative and very conscientious of our comfort. I would highly recommend this to anyone! The sunset was breathtaking and more than worth the added cost!
