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.

We signed up for this tour based on a recommendation we got last year from Acadia Park Kayak Tours. Apparently Acadia Park Kayak Tours had a very late opening this year and we were unable to get on a tour with them. Our experience in the office started a little rough. The person at the desk seemed rushed and gave... More

We realized there were other tour companies that did kayak tours. But we saw that Aquaterra was right on the marina in Bar Harbor. That means no van to ride before and after the tour which sounded good to us for a warmer than normal day. The tour was out in the bay around a couple of the islands. It... More
