Discover the majestic beauty of Acadia National Park and meet a local lobster fisherman that introduces his craft, on this 3-hour adventure. Board your motorcoach and begin a leisurely drive along the stunning coastline of Acadia for sweeping views of rugged shoreline, evergreen forests, and mountain summits. You'll travel down the Park's spectacular 27-mile Loop Road. Your journey will take you along the ocean's edge passing the natural phenomena of Otter Cliff, Schooner Head and Thunder Hole. Traffic permitting, you'll make a photo stop along the way. Next, peek into the world of Maine's lobster industry when a licensed Maine lobsterman or experienced naturalist introduces the life cycle of the lobster, demonstrates the use of authentic traps, and shows you how these creatures are caught. Enjoy a short return trip back to the pier.

Special Notes:

All stops within the park are based on dedicated coach parking being available at the stops. There are 20 steps down to the base of Thunder Hole, which can be wet and slippery. A fine view may be had from the top of the steps. Tours may operate in reverse order.
