Had a wonderful time on the lighthouse tour with Mike as our pilot! He gave us a great tour and even gave our daughter a flying lesson! Definitely a highlight of our off-season trip to Acadia.

They actually trained my wife and she co-piloted a glider. Awesome experience she had with her being in control over the beautiful Acadia Maine Park
