Our popular cruise of the Great Harbor of Mount Desert and Somes Sound Fjord has operated for more than 40 years. The morning trip is narrated by a Ranger provided by Acadia National Park's Naturalist Program or by one of our experienced professional local naturalists.
Superb views of Bear Island Lighthouse, nesting osprey and basking harbor seals framed by Acadia’s dramatic mountains comprise the first portion of the cruise. A major highlight of the middle of the trip is a 45-minute stop at the 200-year-old lobster fishing village of Little Cranberry Island to visit Acadia National Park’s renowned Islesford Historical Museum and to explore an unspoiled offshore island community reminiscent of days gone by. The last hour of the trip cruises deep into Somes Sound Fjord for a spectacular view of the vertical Eagle Cliffs rising directly from the sea.
