Don't go if your group get sea sick, boat travelled very fast but since it is small so the ride will get choppy.

We went on the 1pm whale tour. We were excited to see te coast from the outside looking in. Beautiful scenery. It took about an hour to reach destination where whales feed.

We were in Bar Harbor in mid June, I was told that is a little Early in the season for whales. We did see one finback whale but none of the dramatic breaching that can be seen humpback whales. A fairly disappointing trip, but that is nature.
