We took this cruise as an impromptu idea after a morning of biking and having a lunch. I have young kids, and wanted to take them on a boat ride, but knew that an ocean cruise to look for whales would be too much for them. This cruise departs from Northeast Harbor, a town that is about a 20 minute drive from Bar Harbor. The ride from Bar Harbor to NE Harbor gives a chance to see other parts of Mt Desert Island. The boat is comfortable, and the tour guide was knowledgeable. He explained how the lobster trapping business works, and how the lobster trapping is done. We saw lots of lobster boats and trap buoys on our cruise. We also saw lots of birds and a few seals. The cruise stays in the bay so it is smooth, and at about 90 minutes, is not too long for kids. There is a restroom on the boat, and there are also clean restroom facilities at the dock.
