    About Us

    Island Cruises operates out of Bass Harbor on the Southwestern side of Mount Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park. We are a family-owned business offering Nature Cruises and private charters. Our tour is narrated by the owner and Captain, which the editors of Yankee Magazine said was the best island tour in all of New England. Genuine, personal and family friendly.
