VIP Somes Sound Fjord & Harbors Tour

Adults Ages 15 and older
Seniors Ages 62 and older
Children Ages 14 and under

Cruise the shores of Mount Desert Island towns, villages, and Acadia National Park on our spectacular fjord & park tour aboard the M/V Eden Star. View the vintage homes of Northeast Harbor and Seal Harbor, the quaint village of Southwest Harbor, and cruise with us through Somes Sound into the only fjord on the East Coast!

The Eden Star’s size and shape allows us to get a little closer to many of the sights. This tour is a great introduction to Mount Desert Island and her well-known and sometimes lesser seen inlets, outlets, and hidden gems. There is indoor and outdoor seating, a snack bar, and clean restrooms onboard. The 67-foot Eden Star accepts a maximum of only 70 passengers, so reservations are strongly recommended. The Eden Star boat is pet friendly to friendly pets under 40 pounds.

The VIP Tour will sail daily beginning May 23rd at 1:30 p.m. from our dock at the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel at 119 Eden Street in Bar Harbor. Starting on August 17th this trip will leave at noon. The trip will run approximately three and one-quarter hours.
