“Lighthouse Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

The pilot was skilled and the views were amazing. Our pilot was not the best at conversation, so it wasn't a real 'tour", but we had a great time. Having never been to Maine, or any northern coast, this was a great way to get a bird's eye view.

“Amazing Views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

My wife and I had a wonderful time on our flight. We chose the All Acadia option and enjoyed every minute of it. The pilot was skilled and the views were amazing. Our pilot was not the best at conversation, but we would definitely use them again. If you are looking for something extremely memorable for your trip, I would recommend this one without a doubt.

“What an experience!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

OMG! We Loved it! We traveled to Maine in July 2012 and wanted to have an unforgettable experience and to discover the entire island: by sea, by air and by road.
We decided to go with Scenic Flights of Acadia to enjoy the trip by air - amazing trip! I believe it was an All Acadia tour.
Only suggestion - it will be great to give more details about the island while flying... history, interesting facts etc.
I recommend Scenic Flights of Acadia for all

“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is the best way to see Acadia National Park. It's difficult to put into words just how spectacular our flight was. We took the all of acadia flight. We were able to see our hotel from the air. The staff were amazing. They kept in close contact from the first email enquiring about their service through getting on the plane. This is a must activity for anyone visiting Acadia.

“Beautiful scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We took the lighthouse tour, reasonably priced. Beautiful views- we were up for about an hour. Our pilot Eric let my wife fly a bit which she was thrilled to do as she is interested in a pilot's license herself. Staff was friendly and helpful with area places to eat etc.Pilot Eric was not very talkative and we felt could've been a bit more descriptive of what we were seeing below. Short one word answers to questions etc. Kind of rolled his eyes in a condescending way when I bumped my head getting out of the plane. (yes he had just warned me but I still didn't think it professional) Overall the trip is worth it, but the guide really makes it or breaks it.
