Acadia National Park & Lobster Bake
hrs Estimate Duration
This terrific tour combines the highlights of the Acadia National Park tour with a true "Downeast" lobster bake.
Starting off from the pier, your journey takes you to Acadia National Park, first passing through the quaint town of Bar Harbor to view some of the charming Victorian mansions built by America's rich and famous at the turn of the 20th century. Upon arrival at the Park, you will proceed along the 27-mile Park Loop Road taking in spectacular coastal, mountain and forest views.
Next, you will travel along the ocean's edge, passing Sand Beach, Schooner Head Overlook, and the High Seas Estate, a beautiful mansion built by a wealthy gentleman whose wife perished on the Titanic before ever stepping foot in her dream home.
Continuing on, you'll pass Thunder Hole (if there is parking available, you will make a brief stop here), the Otter Cliffs and the Jordan Pond House as you make your way to a scenic setting where the delicious treat of a true "Downeast" lobster bake awaits you. Pulled fresh from ocean water, you will enjoy typical Maine lobster drizzled with butter along with all the trimmings. For dessert, you won't want to miss one of Maine's local favorites, a mouth-watering piece of homemade blueberry pie. (Steak is available upon request for non-lobster eaters. Please advise your guide just before the tour departs).
At the conclusion of lunch, you will rejoin your coach and make the trip back to the pier in Bar Harbor.
