Acadia National Park Sightseeing Cruise
Grab your binoculars for this exceptional catamaran cruise that wends its way along Acadia National Park, a 47,000-acre Atlantic coastline recreation area. Its painterly landscapes range from rocky beaches to dense woodlands and granite peaks, including Cadillac Mountain, the highest point on the United States' East Coast. In 1929, the Schoodic Peninsula became part of Acadia National Park, adding to it over 27 acres of breathtaking pink granite shores. Wildlife is plentiful in the area. Dress warmly. Guests prone to motion sickness should take precautions.
What you will see along the way:
Cruise the waters of Frenchman Bay and its lush shoreline studded with coastal mansions. As the ever-changing views go by, learn about the area's history and geologic significance and marvel at Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island. First established in 1916, it is the oldest national park east of the Mississippi. Wonders are all around, from the 110-foot-high Otter Cliff to the rugged eastern shore of Schoodic Peninsula, with its red granite rocks, dense forests and two island lighthouses. Keep your camera at the ready for the abundant wildlife, including bald eagles, harbor seals, harbor porpoises, and seabirds.
