    Excellent time!

    We brought our goldendoodle and bernedoodle along for this adventure which went super smoothly! Very dog-friendly crew with enough space for all of us. Aside from being dog friendly, the tour itself was informative with some nice photo ops. We saw purpoises, seals and a bald eagle perching! Highly recommend!

    Really fun afternoon!

    Even though we didn't see much wildlife, it was still a nice boat ride around the harbor that gave you a good look at the beauty of the Maine coast. This was also my dog's first time on a boat & the crew were great with her, saying Hi & making sure that she was doing good during the trip. It did get a little cold for her, so definitely recommend bringing a jacket.

    Good cruise, fantastic crew

    A nice 2 hour cruise around the little islands surrounding Bar Harbor. We seen bald eagles and harbor seals. The crew were very friendly and knew a lot about the area. I took my Great Dane; we sat on the lower level where there were fewer people. There was 2 other dogs on the upper level, which has a 360 view. The staff even offered my dog a blanket to lie on, water and a treat. Highly recommend.

    Great Cruise made even better by being dog-friendly

    It's not often you can take a beautiful, educational nature cruise with your dog but it happens here. We had a great guide and really got to see some beautiful sights and learn a lot about the area. Sounds like we were lucky because we purchased tickets last minute but the large cruise ships were in port and other nature cruises were already filled. We saw plenty of seals.

    we enjoyed this cruise and found it very relaxing and educational. Get there early, about 30 minutes prior to departure so that you are able to get a seat on the upper deck and view everything in 360 degrees. We arrived a little late and a bus full of tourists got there just before us... so we were in the back of the boat on the bottom. Didn't get to experience the whole scenic in 360 degree view, but it was still great. Very pet friendly. Our dogs loved looking over the railing at the water and the birds. we really enjoyed the 2 hour cruise and learned a lot about the surrounding area... also saw porpoises and a bunch of seals (which came very close to the boat)
