A great experience with an excellent guide. The 3 hour tour was a perfect trip that took you through Frenchman Bay and around the Porcupine Islands.

To adults and two tweens on the two hour sunset paddle. Great waterfront location. No need for a bus. Hutch, our guide, a good dude. And an amazing tour of the islands. Eagles, porpoises and the sunset. Take your time and look around. Good gear not great. Kayak was very stable and easy to operate. Instruction was quality. Hard to... More

Took my two boys paddle boarding. Chris, who grew up on the Island, was super helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend.

We cannot control the weather! While on the dock we heard the announcement that the 5:00 whale watch tour was cancelled due to dense fog and for the participants to go to the office for a refund/reschedule. That offer was not extended by our tour company. We paid for a sunset sea kayak tour from 6-8 pm. What we got... More

This was our second kayak, and better than our first wonderful experience in the Caribbean. Travis was enthusiastic without being corny, and very patient with our group as we paddle around an island for a sunset trip. The equipment was stable and of good quality, and we felt in good hands the entire time. Two miles may sound like a... More

My partner and I did a three-hour sea kayaking tour with Hutch, one of the guides at Aquaterra. Everyone we talked to there was very helpful and friendly, but Hutch was a stud. He made the entire tour fun, even the first 30 minutes where we put on gear and got into our kayaks. On top of that, he was... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable, we lucked out and had a small group on 8/15/15. One other tandem kayak, and one solo kayak in addition to our guide. Guide was attentive to safety and provided great instructions. Only 'complaint' would be condition of the equipment, my husband's seat back had to be adjusted by the guide during our excursion, it...

The entire family (two adults and two boys aged 10 and 13) had a fabulous kayak tour with Travis at Acquaterra Adventures. These guys are located right on the pier in Bar Harbor (so you just walk 10 feet to your boats - no driving around) and they specialize in sea kayak trips (I think they have been doing this... More
