This is definitely the best way to view Acadia. We were amazed at the numerous islands which we wouldn't be able to see otherwise. Ben, the pilot was very friendly and informative.

We called to book a flight within a half hour arriving in the area. Fifteen minutes later we were on the lighthouse scenic tour. Our pilot Zal was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. We flew all over the area islands and saw 13 different lighthouses and got some great pictures in our 90 minute flight. This was a great way to... More

Solo-traveling to Acadia for the 4th of July weekend, I was busy online doing my research when I came across Scenic Flights of Acadia mentioned in a post. I knew right away I need to save a spot when I saw the "Be the Pilot" option. I was welcomed right away after walking up. Zal was awesome and definitely calmed... More

We had wanted to get an aerial view of Bar Harbor and Acadia NP as we felt it would be a great way to view the natural beauty. The brochure for Scenic Air Flights was extremely helpful – it was very clear what landmarks and sights would be seen (including prices) – and you could also book online (also helpful... More
