Even the locals recommended it as an awesome experience; and what an experience it was! The Deluxe Lighthouse Tour was a good choice. Yes, there are more glamorous aircraft to be hired nearby, but a high-wing Cessna 172 delivers the best scenery with superior value and comfort. The pre-flight folks kindly set us up with maps of our route, but frankly we were mesmerized by the scenery anyway. The views of the lighthouses, islands and rugged coast were stunning. Like most aviators, Jim the pilot had a sense of humor. He feigned confusion frequently, saying things like, "If I could only remember how to land this thing!" and "Now, where did I put my seizure medicine?" and "What the heck is this knob for?" Kidding aside, it would be regrettable to miss this experience. This flight will be one of the highlights of your vacation. Best to be flexible so you can pick a clear day. Around $100 per person for one of the longer options. Worth it.

Beautiful flight over Mount Desert Island and Bar Harbor at a reasonable cost. Dave was our pilot and pointed out all of the sights. He was friendly, polite and made the trip even more enjoyable. I definitely recommend Scenic Flights of Acadia.

Bought the Lamoine Experience to add onto our Acadia get-away in Maine, as a birthday treat for my husband. It was the perfect gift, the Scenic Flights team (Jenny, Linda, Jim, and all others) were so accommodating and kind. Everything is very professionally run and my husband was raving about it! I will definitely come back and try a Scenic flight with our daughter next time.

Oh, and Linda's sweet golden retriever, Tarek was a nice team-member too! A really great business. You will NOT be disappointed.

Me and the wife went up on the All Acadia flight. Our pilot today was Randy. He was great, pointed out all the sights. Randy was very polite and gave a lot of information and once the flight was over Randy snapped a picture by the plane. We felt very safe and enjoyed our flight. Pictures were amazing just like the breathtaking views. Thank you Randy and Scenic Flights of Acadia for the wonderful experience.
