What you will visit:
Acadia National Park (seen by boat)
First established in 1916, Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island is the oldest national park east of the Mississippi. This 47,000-acre Atlantic coastal recreation area is home to painterly landscapes ranging 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 more than 27 acres of breathtaking pink granite shores. Wildlife is plentiful in the area. Dress warmly. Guests prone to motion sickness should take precautions.
Historic Lighthouses (seen by boat)
Built over 100 years ago, these classic lighthouses were used to safely guide ships along Maine's rugged, sometimes treacherous shoreline and still stand as a testament to its maritime history. The choice of lighthouses seen varies depending on weather and sea conditions but may include Bear Island Light, built in 1838 on an island outside of Northeast Harbor; Baker Island Light, established in 1828; Winter Harbor Light, built in 1856; Egg Rock Lighthouse, built in 1828 and situated in the mouth of Frenchman Bay; and the iconic stone Bass Harbor Head Light Station, constructed in 1858.
What you will see along the way:
There is much natural beauty to see on this relaxed boating adventure that cruises the waters of Mount Desert Island and takes in the historic lighthouses and spectacular coastal scenery of Acadia National Park. Marvel at sweeping views of rugged shoreline, evergreen forests of spruce and pine, and mountain summits. Delight in wilderness vistas and scenic highlights, including rocky cliffs, a series of historic lighthouses and impressive wildlife that may include bald eagles, harbor seals, harbor porpoises, and many seabirds.
