“the fishing was great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

Took the 6.5hr fishing trip which ended up being 7.5hrs due to the Captain letting us stay longer. Had a great time. Caught lots of fish and saw whales, seals, the most desolate light house, and all kinds of birds. On our was back we cruised past the shore of Acadia Park and viewed the shoreline and many amazing houses built along it. This trip is a must if you're wanting to fish while at Bar Harbor and Acadia Park.

“Excellent staff, great ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We really enjoyed the lighthouse, puffin and sea bird tour! We had wonderful wildlife viewings and the staff aboard the boat was top notch! You may get a little wet aboard this boat if the water is choppy, but it is well worth it!!!

“Great time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

My wife and I went out on the morning tour and really enjoyed ourselves. It was in mid-October of this year, so the boat was not full. The young lady who was our guide was informative, interesting, and welcomed questions. We learned a great deal about the Maine lobster industry. The highlights were spotting seals and two Bald Eagles. The first eagle was sitting on top of the lighthouse and the second was on a tree on one of the islands. The boat operator gave us plenty of time to see it as well as get pictures. A great attraction and very reasonably priced.

“Puffins, Lighthouses, & Seabirds Cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We had a great tour last week when visiting the Bar Harbor area. We were able to see the 3 lighthouses very well and got to spend time where the puffins were nesting. They were so cute!! Our guide was able to point out all the types of birds as they flew over us while on the boat. My 13 year old daughter really enjoyed seeing the 5 bald eagles on the island where the seals were. Our guide was able to point out the pair and baby as well as the older juvenile one, and it was so neat to be able to see them like this, The coastline was beautiful and our guide had many interesting storied to tell as we went by.
