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

...was the best tour on our trip to Canada. We made a cruise from NY to Quebec. The second stop was Bar Harbor and we booked a "Deluxe lighthouse tour" by www.scenicflightsofacadia.com. The trip to the airport is short and convenient by taxi (20 min.). Vicki and her crew were very friendly and the flight with Jim the pilot was... More

Even if you have seen the area by land or water, try an aerial view to take it all in. Five different standard tours, but our pilot, Randy, was able to accomodiate our specific interests, too. As soon as we were airborne, we got a great view of Cadillac Mountain and Frenchman Bay. Vickie, the Business Manager, is delightful, charmed... More

Six of us took the Schoodic Point flight. Because the planes only hold three passengers, we flew in two groups. The staff was very friendly. Randy was rather quiet, but did point out the highlights that we were flying over. Jim was very talkative and gave out more information about the area. Both are excellent pilots, and we thoroughly enjoyed... More

I took my son on his first plane ride. The pilot and staff were very helpful. I felt very safe. It was really incredible to see the whole island. We even saw seals on one of the smaller islands.

Even the locals recommended it as an awesome experience; and what an experience it was! The Deluxe Lighthouse Tour was a good choice. Yes, there are more glamorous aircraft to be hired nearby, but a high-wing Cessna 172 delivers the best scenery with superior value and comfort. The pre-flight folks kindly set us up with maps of our route, but... More

Beautiful flight over Mount Desert Island and Bar Harbor at a reasonable cost. Dave was our pilot and pointed out all of the sights. He was friendly, polite and made the trip even more enjoyable. I definitely recommend Scenic Flights of Acadia.

Bought the Lamoine Experience to add onto our Acadia get-away in Maine, as a birthday treat for my husband. It was the perfect gift, the Scenic Flights team (Jenny, Linda, Jim, and all others) were so accommodating and kind. Everything is very professionally run and my husband was raving about it! I will definitely come back and try a Scenic... More
