“Memorable Tour”
Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

We had the most fabulous time on our tour last week. Brescian was a great guide, informative and passionate about the local wildlife and environment. We were originally going on the 9am tour but the weather forecast wasn't great so Brescian suggested we go on the sunset tour and we are so glad that we did, we were lucky enough to see the harbor porpoises and the sunset on the way back was just beautiful, we were so glad that we were given time to sit and watch it from our kayaks, a lovely end to a great trip. We would highly recommend Acadia Park Kayak Tours if you are considering this type of activity.

“Wonderful !!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Our small family ranges in age from 9 to 53 years and this tour gave us a wonderful first time sea kayak experience. We were well prepared, safe and comfortable the entire trip. Brescian, our guide, was informed and interactive. Our trip included bald eagles, habor porpoise and a relaxing workout. Thank you for a GREAT experience - worth the very reasonable cost.

“Relieved”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Brescian was a stand up guy. My wife had injured her shoulder within the 48hr cancellation time and he did not charge us when he could have. we were looking forward to our kayaking trip but will have to do it next year. Thank you for understanding Brescian.

“fantastic tour!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

We had a great tour with Acadia Park Kayak Tours. I felt completely safe the entire trip. I really appreciated the bits of history, environmentalism, and dry humor that our guide shared with us. We even saw a bald eagle! I highly recommend sea kayaking through this tour group.
