My husband myself and two 16 year olds went with our guide, Seth, to Otter Cliffs to rock climb. He showed us how to tie the knots and how the equipment worked, then we repelled down a cliff and climbed back up. We were able to climb a couple different cliffs in the same area. It was very beautiful and... More

Took my 2 boys (ages 9 and 12) to try out rock climbing for the first time. Our guide, Ryan, was awesome. Great with the boys. Gave us great instruction and made us all feel secure before climbing. We ended up going to Pebble Beach, which was an awesome location. We would highly recommend Atlantic Climbing!

LOVED! Our guide (Ryan) was incredibly patient, knowledgeable, and friendly. All the staff at the company was helpful and nice. Because we felt safe and secure we were able to have a exciting, exhilarating experience. I'm really grateful for the hours we had on the mountain.

My teenaged children (one can climb, one cannot) had "an awesome" experience with Eli on Otter Cliff. Also, we had to adjust our booking after my son suffered a minor injury. The team could not have been more helpful. Excellent!

This was an adventure our family was waiting to attempt with the right school. We want to applaud the outstanding guide Dane for his knowledge and expertise for our climbing adventure on Otter Cliffs in Acadia National Park. He was so knowledgeable, kind, patient and comforting. I didn't hesitate repelling of a 70 ft. cliff next to the Atlantic Ocean.... More

So glad we decided to do the rock climbing tour. Ryan,our terrific guide, gave us several options and we chose a medium challenge level seawall climb. He explained all the safety issues very thoroughly and we never felt unsafe, My family (12, 16 and 2 adults) all had a great time! Truthfully, at one point on my second climb, I... More

My wife and daughter climbed for 3 hours in the evening and we're absolutely blown away with the experience. The views were great, the instruction fantastic and the climbing challenging but manageable. A fantastic experience all around!

Don't miss an opportunity to go rock climbing with this outfit- friendly, personable, knowledgable and enthusiastic. Could very well be my new hobby.

My daughter and I have been climbing with ACS for the last seven years that we have been to Bar Harbor. Always a great time with experienced and knowledgeable guides. We would recommend them to everyone considering climbing.

A fantastic family activity with our 8 and 10 year old daughters. We aren't thrill-seeking parents by nature and this was a unique opportunity to get out of our collective comfort zones, so the sense of achievement was enormous. Our kids were far more nimble than us and it was a unique opportunity for them to see their parents having... More
