We did the Nature Cruise which goes out to the ocean side of Bar Harbor and before you come back into Frenchman Bay you visit Egg Rock Light, and while we were out there, there were seals on the rocks close by.

We saw the Egg Rock Light while we were on the Harbor Nature Cruise. This Light House is still an important part of the safety of Frenchman's Bay. Keeping boaters aware of the rocks. The Cruise Line was careful to move the boat around so that all passangers were afforded access to photo opps.

We've visited this island twice on Lulu's Lobster boat cruise. Both times we were there in September. It's a really fun and informative ride and you get to see all the wildlife on the island where Egg Rock Light is. Seals, eagles, puffins...

Was out by this lighthouse while on a lobster tour. Saw lots of seals and bald eagles! It is kind of far out, but worth it if you enjoy seeing wildlife in its natural element.

An interesting spot well described history by our Acadia Nature/Sightseeing Cruise. Harbor seals were one of the few marine life we saw.

Love going by this little place by boat. There are always tons of seals on shore and everytime we have gone by we have seen several bald eagles. Very relaxing area.
