Tour Details

Bar Harbor, originally called Eden, has a world renowned ambiance that blends seashore community, Downeast character, rocky shores and the famous Maine Lobster. Founded in 1796, it is the best known town on Mount Desert Island.

Enjoy a peaceful, serene, and comfortable sail among the islands of Frenchman Bay aboard a classic schooner ship. Since the 1700s, schooners have been used for a variety of purposes because they are fast, sleek, adaptable, and considered the sturdiest ships of all time.

Frenchman Bay is named for Samuel de Champlain, the French explorer who visited the area in 1604. The bay is bounded on the east by the Schoodic Peninsula, and on the west by Mount Desert Island; parts of both are in Acadia National Park. It contains numerous islands, the largest of which is Ironbound Island. The bay extends for roughly 15 miles and spans 7 miles at its widest.

Pack a meal, bring your favorite wine or beer (no hard liquor please) and sit back and relax or, if you feel inspired, join the crew to hoist the sails or take a turn at the ship's wheel.

Please note: Restroom facilities are available on board for your convenience.
