Encompassing the best that Bar Harbor has to offer, this tour also includes the beautiful scenery of Acadia National Park. You’ll also learn about the fascinating world of the lobster fishermen with a visit to the Lobster Oceanarium and journey back in time to experience a remaining example of Bar Harbor’s Golden Age architecture. Your scenic drive will take you along the ocean’s edge passing Otter Cliff and Thunder Hole, where the ocean swells converge against the granite cliffs to create a thunderous roar. Depending on parking availability and weather conditions, a photo stop may be made at Thunder Hole.


Continue to the Oceanarium and Museum where you’ll have the opportunity to learn about Maine’s lobster industry. A licensed Maine lobsterman will explain the life cycle of the lobster, and demonstrate how lobsters are caught, making their way from the ocean to your dinner table. Continuing to Bar Harbor, enjoy the unique ambiance of either the Cleftstone Inn or Saint Saviour’s church, both excellent examples of Bar Harbor’s Golden Age. Continue to Bar Harbor and travel back in time to a gilded-age mansion.
