"My sister and I had a two hour guided ocean tour with Chris. He was very knowledgeable and patient in teaching us a number of additional strokes and maneuvers. The area is also absolutely breathtaking. The water was crystal clear and we even saw a jellyfish. I cannot recommend this enough. I am taking my husband here next time we visit Acadia."

Awesome Stand Up Paddleboarding Trip!
This was a great paddle boarding experience for me and my 2 kids (ages 9 and 11). Our guide, Curtis, was awesome, and especially entertaining for the kids! He was the right balance of instruction, giving help when needed, and fun! My kids especially enjoyed the board tricks. We have done various types of water excursions (for example kayaking), but the kids seem to get bored shortly into the adventure. Not this time! I think they would have been happy to have stayed longer...

"We visited Acadia a few weeks ago and booked an ocean tour. We had a great time! We are novices and Chris took the time to teach us all the technique we would need to get around without a problem... It was a fun way to explore and spend time on the water. Chris knows what he is doing and it shows. A lovely activity to do in Bar Harbor!"
What a Blast!
We took a group lesson in the harbor just outside bar Island. Our instructor, Terry, was excellent. He had us up on the boards in no time. Was very patient with us even through a couple of splashes. The early morning tour in the harbor was very calm and the wetsuits helped with any falls. So glad we did it, would highly recommend!
