Had an awesome time on the sunset tour during columbus day weekend in Acadia! Our guide Travis was fantastic -- super personable, great instruction (just enough, not overwhelming or intimidating), and had an incredible knowledge about the area. It was clear he had a lot of personal and professional experience that made our tour one to remember!

We were walk in customers and had several questions because we were both rookies to kayaking. We spoke with Mel Salvens at the counter, she was friendly, knowledgeable and able to answer all of our questions. We went out the next day with Travis Nighman as our guide and had an amazing time. After a very thorough but easy to... More

My husband and I had signed up for an early morning kayak tour in Bar Harbor with Aquaterra Adventures. While the bay looked calm to a novice, we were told otherwise when we checked in for the tour. Hurricane winds were causing a 20 knot wind and only the experienced or very adventurous would be comfortable paddling around the islands... More

My family and I - my wife and two kids 13 and 15 years old - did a 3 hour trip with Aquaterra and we really enjoyed it. Great way to spend an afternoon. The two hour tour might be a bit short because the first 20-30 minutes are suiting you up, going over safety precautions, instructions on how to... More

My Mom and I did a girls weekend and booked Aquaterra Adventures' sunset kayak trip. We were looking for something that wasn't too long because it's been a few years since we've been kayaking. Our guide, Mike, was fun and knowledgeable. We've had many guides in various areas of the US before and he was on point. All of the... More

Went on the sunset tour at 5:00pm. The people at Aquaterra were friendly and very informative/answered all questions; reasonable rates & right near the docks. Our guide was knowledgeable and funny....definitely recommend.

We were delighted we chose this company, clear instructions, felt safe all the time, a guide who obviously loved his job, and enjoyed pointing out all wild life we would have otherwise missed. Saw another group with different company, left out across bay by an island, whilst their guide took someone back to shore, would have been very worried if... More

My husband and I have no kayaking experience, but we heard that kayaking is a fun activity to do while on Mount Desert Island. We looked around online and found many different places that offer kayaking, but there is only one company (Aquaterra Adventures) that does kayaking right off of the dock in Bar Harbor. All of the other companies... More

My family of 4 decided to kayak Bar Harbor for the sunset, and we found this outfit with a very doable 2 hour tour right out the middle of Bar Harbor. Nicely priced and staffed by great friendly people... truly unique experience and wonderful views of the area (deer, bald eagles, and a wonderful sunset).
