Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:

Acadia National Park/Park Loop Road
First established in 1916, Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island is the oldest national park east of the Mississippi. A 47,000-acre Atlantic coastline recreation area, it is best showcased by Park Loop Road, a 27-mile stretch designated as one of America's most scenic byways.
What you will see along the way:
Your adventure begins with a leisurely drive through Bar Harbor and along the stunning coastline of Acadia, the first National Park east of the Mississippi. Take in sweeping views of rugged shoreline, evergreen forests of spruce and pine, and mountain summits. You'll drive along the majestic Ocean Drive section of Acadia's Park Loop Road, passing such landmarks as Sand Beach, Jordan Pond, Eagle Lake, and the private church at Martha Stewart's Seal Harbor estate.

Photo Opportunities:

Thunder Hole
Under the right tidal conditions, ocean swells converge with a thunderous roar against the granite coastline at dramatic Thunder Hole. If the tides are favorable, you will see the ocean spray shooting high into the air.

Cadillac Mountain
Named for Sieur de la Mothe Cadillac, who migrated from France and settled in Maine during the 17th century, the 1,532-foot-tall mountain is not only the tallest on Mount Desert Island but also has the distinction of being the highest point on the North American east coast.

Lunch:
Relax over a three course meal in one of the fine restaurants in Bar Harbor, including salmon or lobster roll, dessert and a nonalcoholic beverage.

Special Notes:

The limo coach will take up to 14 guests per departure. On foggy days the tour might not visit Cadillac Mountain. A visit to the Acadia National Park Visitor Center or Jordan Pond House might be made in substitution. Should there be an afternoon departure; participants will have lunch prior to the tour.
