The rocky shores of Maine make the perfect backdrop for a whale watching adventure! Located just outside of Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor is the Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company.
This whale watching tour takes visitors off the coast and into the Gulf of Maine. While enjoying a relaxing ride on a catamaran, you’ll be able to see the incredible vistas of the shoreline, the islands, and the iconic lighthouses and scenery of Acadia National Park.
While this is billed as a whale watching tour, it is highly likely that guests will see other northeastern wildlife, too. Seals, seabirds, porpoises, and harbor seals are almost a sure bet while taking one of these excursions.
Guests can also expect to learn a thing or two on their whale-watching cruise. Naturalist boat guides accompany each trip, sharing fun facts and interesting information about the animals that call the Gulf of Maine home.
