The guide was excellent! Very informative on local wildlife and the park. We had a great time! They even took pictures of us in front of a waterfall :) Definitely worth the money. You get to see so much of the park and we were able to see multiple bald eagles and even a seal :)

My fiance and I took this trip during our recent trip to Bar Harbor, and it was one of the highlights of our vacation. The company was prompt, friendly, and well prepared. Lou, our guide, went above and beyond when it came to offering service, humor, and information on the area. Would DEFINITELY recommend this vendor to anyone considering a kayak trip in the area.

Neither of us had ever been sea kayaking, but my husband and I had a great tour. Fletch did a great job at giving us lots of information on the water and out. We got to see a juvenile bald eagle and its nest, a variety of other birds and a few seal heads popping out of the water for a breather. Fletch did a great job of moving from boat group to boat group so that we could chat about the wildlife and history of the area without having to group up and bump boats. This tour company also chooses the route based on the tide, weather and wind direction, which pretty much guarantees a comfortable tour. On the ride back Fletcher gave us lots of great suggestions of places to eat and not a single one we tried did us wrong. In fact they all became our favorite foods of the trip! I would definitely do this tour again.

My husband Randy and I had one of the most memorable times ever in Bar Harbor, ME this year on July 4th day when we went Sea Kayaking with this company.

Our tour guide was great -- he made us feel really comfortable with what to expect and what we might see. And, although he didn't promise that we'd see wildlife, he took us to an area where Harbor Seals live and we saw at least 10 of them! some of them came pretty close to the kayaks and we got some great pictures. We also saw a Loon.

This was by far the highlight of our trip and the most fun and memorable kayaking trips that we have ever taken.

I highly recommend National Park Sea Kayak Tours which is conveniently located on Cottage Street in the heart of Bar Harbor. Very convenient location.

A year ago we went with their sister company in South West Harbor and had a wonderful time as well!

Went on the 4hr tour and our guide was Lou, just an outstanding time! Between the dolphins, seals, bald eagle nest (nice home but no one was home :) ) and of course the kayaking the trip was just outstanding. Well worth the time and money.
