This was so much fun! I have always wanted to go whale watching and finally got to do it. We had only 2 days in Bar Harbor and one of the days, both trips were cancelled due to weather. Thankfully, we were able to go. The staff at the ticket counter told us where to stand for the best view - it was perfect until a bunch of unsupervised screaming kids came up and started running all over the area. (not the company's fault parents do not supervise their children on a boat in the middle of the ocean!) It was a slow day for whiles - saw 2 finback whales and would have loved to see a humpback. But, you cannot predict whales, so I was so happy to see the 2 we did. The day we went, there was a pod of about 50 dolphins swimming with the boat, which was very neat to see! I would certainly do this again! The crew was very helpful and professional - we loved having the naturalist along. Please make sure to tip them well since they explain so much during the tour! What a great time!
