Fall Foliage or Summer cruise ships

This is a great way to see Bar Harbor and surrounding areas from a different perspective. Fall tours are spectacular, but Spring and Summer have their own buty.

My 10 year old daughter and I had amazing experience flying with Jeremy over the Maine coast. The views were amazing. Jeremy is a very knowledgeable pilot and tour guide. The experience worth every penny.

He is a fantastic pilot, and very knowledgeable about the area. He gave a fantastic tour. I would recommend both the company, and Jeremy! I would... More

We booked the Deluxe Lighthouse flight 2 days in advance, not totally sure if the weather would hold until then. We called on the morning to confirm all was a go and they advised us to come an hour later than booked as the weather would hopefully be better. The flight was awesome, the views were amazing and our pilot,... More

My husband treated me to an adventurous surprise birthday gift by taking me on a scenic flight of the Acadia area with this company. The views were amazing and one of a kind from a small plane. Our pilot, Alan, was an excellent narrator and put my nerves at ease immediately with his kind and friendly demeanor. Also sensing our... More

Aerial tours are not cheap - but it wasn't so bad with three of us in a group splitting the cost. Despite the cost, it's something I would definitely recommend. The national park is surrounded by lots of little islands that you are unlikely to have the chance to see otherwise - so for us, only have two days at... More

My husband recently had a stroke and I can't say enough about the staff of Scenic Flights of Acadia! Steve the owner made sure he was able to reach the plane safely and another staff member helped him board. My husband stated that the flight was exhilarating and said the windy weather added to the excitement of the flight. We... More

My husband and I, and a second couple, decided to do your Deluxe Lighthouse flight, on our car drive to Bar Harbor. So glad we did! Wonderful experience, and a first for all four of us to fly in such a small plane. Scenery was breath-taking, our pilots very helpful and informative. Certainly have impressed my Face Book friends by... More

We had a such a wonderful experience today with Scenic Flights. I have never been on such a small airplane, but felt safe through the entire experience ! The landing was the best I ever had! The pilot... Should give some of the big airliners how it is really done!!!!

We took the "Schoodic Point" flight and got to see parts of the Bar Harbor area we never would have by car. Alan, our pilot, was very informative about the different landmarks we flew over. He answered all of our questions about the area, not just those related to the flight. The best part was getting to "fly" the plane... More
