Take a two hour, fully narrated cruise of Frenchman Bay and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of coastal Maine, Acadia National Park, and the Bar Harbor shoreline. Pet friendly!
Located at the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel in Bar Harbor, Maine, Acadian Boat Tours offers nature cruises, puffin and seabird tours, tours of Somes Sound, as well as fishing trips aboard the Acadian and the Islander. Explore the rich wildlife population and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of coastal Maine, Acadia National Park, the islands of Frenchman Bay, and the shoreline of Bar Harbor.
We also feature views of lighthouses, the vintage homes of Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, and Seal Harbor, and the quaint village of Southwest Harbor. Cruise with us through Frenchman Bay or Somes Sound into the only fjord on the East Coast. We have naturalists who will keep you informed about the wildlife we are seeing and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
We have two boats, the Acadian and the Islander. Our boats are clean and family oriented and the Acadian is pet friendly. Both boats offer a snack bar, restrooms, and a heated cabin. However, please bring a warm jacket or sweater with you on all of our cruises, as temperatures on the water are cooler than they are on shore.
We provide great trips for the entire family or group. Reservations are always recommended. Dates and times vary by trip chosen. Please see our trip schedule for details. We have plenty of free parking on site for guests while on one of our cruises.
Our cruises depart daily from the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel in Bar Harbor in search of eagles, porpoises, seals, and other marine life.
Tours are fully narrated and run between 2-4 hours depending on the trip you choose.
