Just toured Bar Harbor with this outfitter and had a fantastic experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Best bang for the buck in the area!

My daughter and I recently went to Bar Harbor in Sept. We hiked Acadia NP and ate at great restaurants in BH. One of the highlights of the trip was a sunset kayak tour w APKT and Brescian. His professionalism and knowledge of the area and islands is exemplary. I was particularly impressed when the group of 10 kayakers introduced... More

Our trip with Brescian was amazing! We were a group of three, myself, my boyfriend, and our friend. We were fortunate enough to have a beautiful day in late September ? Brescian was very professional, safe, informative, and fun. He pointed out a lot of wildlife, told us about lobster boats, the islands, and even gave us a great recommendation... More

Well organized tour of Frenchman's Bay with a strong emphasis on safety. Kayak training was excellent. Brescian knows these waters and their history. Magnificent views especially sunset. You don't realize what a great work out you are getting. You get an ocean/Bay tour on your own steam. First rate equipment.

We did a private tour with our family. We have two children 8 and 9. Our guide, Brescian, picked an appropriate tour for us, taking into account the weather and his assessment of our ability. Given the wind, he picked a more sheltered route for us, Hadley Point. Great call. He gave us some good instruction before we started. We... More

Great website, we were well prepared when we arrived. Great pre-trip instruction, we felt very confident with Brescian and his knowledge and equipment. He was also very patient but firm with some members of the group who were goofing off. Hope we get to come back to the area (from Az!) and we will call him again for another go.

She prefer the kayaking to the climbing or walking in the park. It is really wonderful to be... More

The tour was informative, offered great views and the kayaking was not too strenuous. We went into a small cave, saw an eagle (and its nest), went around all three porcupine islands and stopped for a break on one of them. So much fun, a must do for everyone visiting Acadia!

We went out with Brescian today. We have been kayaking many times in different states and never have had better instruction or equipment. The sites were great and instruction that actually made sense and was appropriate for the situation at hand. You really should wonder about any negative reviews- my experience with those companies getting the occassional poor review is... More
