We did not make any reservations for our visit to Acadia National Park but top on our list of things to do was to see lighthouses. So we tried several tour boat companies all were booked full because of a cruise ship anchored at Bar Harbor and the government shut down closing the park to vehicle sight seeing. So we seen Acadia Air Tours offered a flight that offered a view of 5 lighthouses and scenery of Acadia National Park. We were first in line when the doors opened and were able to book a flight in the small enclosed plane. Note: you need a car or away to get from the office on the pier in Bar Harbor to the airport near Trenton about 20 minutes away. We were a little disappointed in the flight path, we did not circle the lighthouses just a quick fly by. Being that the plane was enclosed and the back seating cramped only the person with the lighthouse out their window got a view at all. Very rough flight too so our cheap camera had a hard time focusing for great pictures. Plus we flew at a surface height of air cruising not down low sightseeing. Pilot gave minimal narration on what we were seeing. Not a way to see lighthouses. On the plus side we saw more of Acadia National Park than most visitors with the government shut down and it was beautiful even with the fall colors past peak. Over all an average tour, try the bi-plane it may be better. At least you have the experience of flying in an open cockpit.
