Choosing Tours

My husband and I will be in Bar Harbor Sept. 10-12. We want to take a boat tour, but need suggestions. My research has led me to a long list, and only a few specifics mentioned on Tripadvisor.

I do want to see wildlife, but also would like to see sunset and don't want to be in a crowded boat. I've read all the negative posts about Whale Watching and that it is cold, and I've read good things about Lulu's....any other suggestions?

Hi Off4Fun,

We found one this year in Bass Harbor that we really enjoyed. There was a great deal of wildlife and it was not crowded when we went. But the last trip is at 3:00 pm. Here is a link to the TA review and their e-mail. You will need to see if they are still running when you are there.

MDI and Acadia is a wonderful place to visit. Enjoy your trip!

You also might want to look into Sea Ventures Custom Boat tours,

It is a smaller boat, making it a more personal experience. I have been out on the tour years ago and was very impressed with Capt Shaw's knowledge of the area and wildlife.
