This was an adventure our family was waiting to attempt with the right school. We want to applaud the outstanding guide Dane for his knowledge and expertise for our climbing adventure on Otter Cliffs in Acadia National Park. He was so knowledgeable, kind, patient and comforting. I didn't hesitate repelling of a 70 ft. cliff next to the Atlantic Ocean. His guidance was superb! We look forward to returning to do more climbing on our next trip to Bar Harbor. Absolutely awesome experience, views and family event of a lifetime.

So glad we decided to do the rock climbing tour. Ryan,our terrific guide, gave us several options and we chose a medium challenge level seawall climb. He explained all the safety issues very thoroughly and we never felt unsafe, My family (12, 16 and 2 adults) all had a great time! Truthfully, at one point on my second climb, I felt stuck and did panic a bit. Ryan was very calming and helpful and i was able to complete the climb. It was a great day and a wonderful memory and i highly recommend it! Will do it again next time we are in Bar harbor!

My wife and daughter climbed for 3 hours in the evening and we're absolutely blown away with the experience. The views were great, the instruction fantastic and the climbing challenging but manageable.

A fantastic experience all around!

Don't miss an opportunity to go rock climbing with this outfit- friendly, personable, knowledgable and enthusiastic. Could very well be my new hobby.

My daughter and I have been climbing with ACS for the last seven years that we have been to Bar Harbor. Always a great time with experienced and knowledgeable guides. We would recommend them to everyone considering climbing.
