5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Very convenient trip to a special place.
We traveled over to hike the island and were met with unpredicted sun. The schedule was perfect for visiting the Isle.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

We took the 3 hour tour out to Isle au Haut from Stonington. It was a great time - the Captain and his First, were both very friendly and informative. They gave us a great tour and we even had the oppurtunity to see a couple of seals on the rocks. There is very cool lighthouse out there and a very nice little town. Part of the Isle is part of Acadia National Park so there are a lot of hikers and campers that comme out by ferry as well . The Isle seems to be home to many artists and photographers. This is a great way to spend an afternoon.

If you want a nice safe boat ride up through the islands between stonington and Isle au Haut then this ride is a must. Check out Fisherman's Friend when your done for a great lunch or dinner

“Take the Isle au Haut Ferry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

While visiting Stonington, Maine, a small but great lobstering village, we had the opportunity to go out on the Isle au Haut Ferry. The trip to Isle au Haut takes about 45 minutes at a very enjoyable, leisurely pace. We also visited Duck Harbor which is part of Acadia National Park. We only left the boat to visit the island rest room. Many people left the boat to bike, hike and/or camp on the island-which is very beautiful.

The captain of the boat was very accommodating. We saw seals, porpoises, and all kinds of birds. In short, it was a great time.

If you visit Stongington, which I highly recommend, go out on the Isle au Haut Ferry. You will not be disappointed.
