Summer Tours Made For you
Spring is in the air, which means thoughts are turning to Maine’s superb summer activities, especially those that tour Bar Harbor.
Summer haunts - Lace up your walking shoes and join Bar Harbor Ghost Tours or Red Cloak Haunted History Tours for tales of local hauntings and the true history behind them. Learn about our Wabanaki Indian spirits or the salacious side of Bar Harbor’s past during the Prohibition Era of the 20s and early 30s. Both tour companies operate nightly tours May through October.
Looking to taste the local flavors? - Bar Harbor is lucky to have Maine Foodie Tours in town, taking visitors on walking tours to a variety of locales on the Savor Bar Harbor Culinary Walking Tour. Visit a mix of restaurants, pubs and shops for tastes of artisan goods that include samples of mini lobster rolls, duck-fat fries and award-winning local cheeses. They also offer a Happy 2-Hour Tour for an entirely different perspective of the town as foodies enjoy locally crafted beer, cocktails and light appetizers.
Rest your feet for a day - come aboard a sightseeing boat and experience Mount Desert Island from the sea. Acadian Boat Tours offers Bar Harbor's longest running and most popular cruise. See the highlights of Acadia National Park—seals, eagles, osprey, harbor porpoise, vintage summer mansions, and rocky cliffs, lobster boats at work, Egg Rock Lighthouse and more on this two-hour cruise of Frenchman Bay. And feel free to bring your four-legged friend, the cruise is pet-friendly! For a unique hands-on experience, check out Diver Ed’s Dive-In Theater aboard his vessel, the Starfish Enterprise. Diver Ed dives down to the ocean floor and brings up his discoveries for an entertaining and educational trip.
Bar Harbor’s variety of seasonal activities is perfect for exploring this region’s diverse culture and natural surroundings, for both adults and children. For more information on any of these activities, call (207) 288-5103 or visit www.visitbarharbor.com.
