Everything about this experience was top notch, beginning with reservations. We stopped on a whim, and I was concerned about getting on the plane (MS has limited my mobility), but they told us not to worry, they'd worked with lots of travelers with physical limitations. We made a reservation for later that day and went happily off to tour Acadia.... More

This was the highlight of our trip! We went here for our son's 11th birthday. The reservation process was exceptional. The air and water package is agreat deal. Ben is a great pilot and the whole experience was a joy. Highly Recommend.

We took an early morning flight over Acadia National Park and the surrounding islands. Our pilot Dave was a wonderful pilot and a knowledgeable tour guide. I would recommend this to anyone. Seeing this beautiful part of the country from above is fantastic so worth it.

Just took the most beautiful morning flight over Bar Harbor and the Acadia National Park with our pilot Mike! It was so relaxing and you can see all the sights in a short period of time. Mike was very pleasant and knows the area very well. Although our son chickened out and won't assist Mike with flying, we all had... More

I went to bar harbor this past weekend it was beautiful we did sight seeing but i was still pretty bored. I felt like there wasn't much to do particularly on my budget. But then i remembered seeing the scenic flight sign driving to my motel. So i went there and did the all acadia package. It was amazing. Ben... More

Grandpa and granddaughter went on this and loved it. She said it was the best thing that she did on the entire trip we took her on. Loved the scenery, loved the pilot. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

Great folks. Friendly arrangements made by Vickie and two excellent pilots! Our boys age 17 and 15 had a great experience. The length was perfect. Great photo ops as well.
