I was really uncomfortable with the idea of hiking in Acadia during the closure, even though I know many others were hiking, cycling, etc. So we were looking for something to do in Bar Harbor for the day. Aquaterra is right at the harbor where you come in from the cruise ship tenders and they were offering two trips that... More

My husband and I did a two hr. kayak tour around the harbor with Aquaterra Adventures and it was really cool - definitely glad we did it. I've kayaked before and wasn't so into the idea, but my husband wanted to so I went along. Needless to say the views are incredible. Our amazing tour guide, Travis, definitely knew his... More

We looked at all of the kayak tour companies in Bar Harbor. There's some serious competition. Most of them tout 4 hour tours on the "quiet side" (west side) of the island. What you have to figure into this is it's a 1/2 hour each way so really you're down to a 3 hour tour, minus a 1/2 hour instructional... More

There are so many Kayak tours to pick from in Bar Harbor and we picked a winner! The tour guide (and owner) took us out for 5 hours. It was awesome. I can't remember his name but he was very informative and friendly. He told us all about the islands. We were able to see porpoise's right by our kayaks.... More

This is actually the second time my husband and I have taken a tour with Aquaterra Adventures and it was even better than the first time. We did the 2 hr sunset kayak tour and our guide, Dave, was friendly, funny, and informative. It was a bit windy so we stayed closer to the shore, but we got to see... More

We booked a 2 hour kayak ride for our family of four. Only one of us had ever (limited) been in a kayak prior. 2:30 departure with our guide Dave. You immediately have confidence in him and his abilities. The ride is almost 3 miles which was highlighted by Dave pointing out a young eagle. We would not hesitate to... More

My husband and teenage son and I enjoyed our sea kayak adventure with Aquaterra Adventures in early August. We had limited kayak experience and found ourselves in a group with all first timers. Our guide (Mike) was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about the area, the sea, wildlife, pirates, you name it. He was an awesome instructor, very efficient at... More

We booked a 3 hour kayak trip to porcupine Island. However, because of high winds we were given the option to get our money back, reschedule the trip, kayak in a different area. All 12 people in the group decided to continue with the trip and kayak where it was less windy. We ultimately traveled about 7 miles total (... More

Looking for activities in Bar Harbor and decided to do the 2 hour Sunset Kayak tour with Aquasterra Adventures at the Marina. Pete was the perfect guide for the perfect sunset Kayak tour. Water and weather were great. Sunset was beautiful. Exceptional instruction. Great Fun! You must try this.
