Can't say enough about how fun our experience with Atlantic Climbing School was. Our guides were so professional and helpful; allowing us to scale rocks we didn't think possible. This was our first time doing climbing outside a gym and they made it infinitely doable. I'd recommend this school to anyone. One of the highlights of our Maine vacation.

As a formerly avid climber, this was the thing I was most anticipating when visiting Acadia, and I was absolutely right! Our guide Mike took our very mixed group (two with no experience, one with gym only, and then me) and found us an experience with comfort and just a little challenge. He ensured safety in a way that still felt chill and gave me a little freedom as I started to recall my old skills. He was encouraging to our new climbers and helped them overcome their nerves. He showed my husband how to transition from gym to rock and we're now hoping to find a similar guide service in our area to continue that transition! Don't worry about any experience level when booking with these folks- they know how to handle it!

We had the best time! Ryan was such a great guide! Super sweet and knowledgeable. Made us feel super comfortable and safe dangling off the side of Acadias cliffs!

Fantastic activity. Best way to experience the otter cliff and get amazing views while feeling safe. First time but not last.

We LOVED our rock climbing lesson! Our instructor, Murphy, was awesome. We were the only ones at Cooksey Road Overlook. The scenery was beautiful! We each got to climb on 3 different routes. As high tide approached, we were basically in our own private “Thunder Hole” as we listened to the thundering waves hit the rocks. This was my daughter’s favorite part of the trip!
