As we continue to navigate these unprecedented times – we are learning new ways and updates to keep our crew, staff and passengers safe! We have implemented some strategic guidelines for our boat tours:
We ask that passengers kindly wear face coverings while waiting and boarding the boats
Our capacities have been reduced to approximately 1/3 of original, leaving space to social distance between seats
Once seated onboard, face coverings may be removed – unless you are walking around or going inside…then they need to be worn
Hand sanitizer is available in several places throughout the boats
Our crew sanitizes high traffic and other needed areas between each trip
We are using a printed manifest for boarding – and passengers receive either an email or text message to show when boarding (no transferring of tickets from passengers to crew)
We are currently offering minimal tours through the month of June (check our website: www.acadianboattours.com) or call us: 207-801-2300 – with additional trips available starting July 1 through the end of October.
We thank you for your patience and for choosing Acadian Boat Tours for your vacation boat trip!
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.
Our boats are USCG Safety Inspected yearly.
About Our Tours
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.
