A great place to stroll and take pictures! When done, head to one of the many close by restaurants or cafes.

Our family camped here years before Trip Advisor was even a dream. Our campsite overlooked the bay and the bridge. The raw beauty of Maine displayed before our eyes, a fresh lobster simmering in a stockpot over our campfire. Could life be any simply perfect?

Frenchman Bay was a relaxing sight to behold after our long flight. It was nice to see the dozens of sailboats, a huge cruise ship, and the many islands that dot the horizon welcoming us. We witnessed many people lying upon the open grass hillside taking it all in, just as we did. This is what you expect from a... More

We visited Bar Harbor on a day trip included with our cruise. We didn't schedule an excursion and were glad we chose to explore on our own. We walked the ocean path into the Main Street area. It was truly beautiful! Leaves were just turning and the air was crisp. We found many little shops to explore.

We stopped here on a port of call on our cruise last week (10-9-2013), and thought Bar Harbor was such a beautiful spot we decided to get married there. Went to city hall, had a private ceremony on the banks of Frenchman Bay, and were back on board ship in time for dinner !! Frenchman Bay will always hold a... More

The scenery rivals Alaska. The ride aboard the Margaret Todd Schooner was all that one could image. I would go back in a flash if I could. The Captain's knowledge gives you as a passenger complete confidence in what will happen and what you should look forward to.

Frenchman Bay is really beautiful and one could just spend the day there watching all the ships, boats, and schooners coming and going. The Porcupine Islands as beautiful from the bay at sun set. We took an evening sunset cruise on the Margaret Todd and had amazing views of the bay and surrounding area. We saw all kinds of birds... More

Of course this was a top ten weather day which helped a great deal. Very beautiful. The Bay has many, many islands and some breath taking views of Acadia National Park.
