Take in the Sights on an Acadian Nature Cruise!

Join us for a two hour, fully-narrated nature cruise of Frenchman Bay and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of coastal Maine, Acadia National Park, the islands of Frenchman Bay and Bar Harbor.

Our Acadia nature cruises leave daily from Bar Harbor, Maine in search of eagles, porpoises, seals, and other interesting marine mammals and birds. We also feature views of timeless mansions, Egg Rock Lighthouse and occasionally migrating birds that have ventured into Frenchman Bay.

The Acadian has a light (cash only) snack bar, clean restrooms and an indoor heated cabin. However, dress warmly as it is MUCH cooler on the water, even on a hot, sunny day! The Acadian is handicap-accessible and pet-friendly to friendly pets.

Please note – this trip does not include puffins.
