“Exciting family climb”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

Took my 2 boys (ages 9 and 12) to try out rock climbing for the first time.

Our guide, Ryan, was awesome. Great with the boys. Gave us great instruction and made us all feel secure before climbing.

We ended up going to Pebble Beach, which was an awesome location. We would highly recommend Atlantic Climbing!

“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

LOVED! Our guide (Ryan) was incredibly patient, knowledgeable, and friendly. All the staff at the company was helpful and nice. Because we felt safe and secure we were able to have a exciting, exhilarating experience. I'm really grateful for the hours we had on the mountain.

“Climbing Acadia”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

My teenaged children (one can climb, one cannot) had "an awesome" experience with Eli on Otter Cliff. Also, we had to adjust our booking after my son suffered a minor injury. The team could not have been more helpful. Excellent!

“ABSOLUTELY AWESEME ... WOW”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

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.

“awesome!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

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!
