What a great experience! Everyone there was so helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. They were great for not only the air tour but also other things to see and do while on the island.

Pilot and staff were friendly. We were well advised of our flight plan and what we would be seeing. Did not waste any time getting into the air. Even though the pilot was not from Maine he had a lot of knowledge about the area. And several stories of the lighthouses. It was a very smooth flight - although the... More

What an amazingly awesome way to experience Acadia! The entire staff was upbeat and pleasant! Not sure if you can request pilots, but if you can, ask for Jeremy - very professional, funny (calms your nerves instantly) and informative! This is def a must do!!

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.
