Acadian Boat Tours offers 3 and 4 hour trips in Frenchman Bay, Bar Harbor. Sailing 8:00 a.m. daily from June 11th to September 11th, these are great family trips! We stay in Frenchman Bay where we fish for Cod, Harbor Pollock, and Mackerel. We fish with spinning tackle and Sibiki rigs, making kids and adults alike feel like champion anglers. Our experienced crew will help you land your catch and take the fish off your line. We’ll even clean and bag your catch for you.

This is also a great trip to see some of Frenchman Bay and its abundance of wildlife and scenic views. Don’t be surprised if you spot seals and eagles while out there!  We fish the best of upper and lower bay areas of Frenchman Bay offering the most opportunities for success. All fishing tackle and licenses are included in your fare.

*Sorry, the Islander boat is NOT pet-friendly. For our passengers with furry friends, we recommend the Acadian Sightseeing/Nature Cruise, which welcomes friendly pets.

July 1st through August 31st, we also offer 1:00pm trips Monday through Saturday (3 Hours) and evening fishing on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 4:30pm (3 Hours).
