Cruising at a leisurely speed among the rockbound islands of the bay, observe the magnificent beauty of the coast. Pass stately shoreline “cottages” built by the wealthy elite of the early 20th century and glide by the granite ledges where seals often “haul out” to bask in the sun.

In addition to appreciating the sights, you will learn about the history and folklore of Bar Harbor, Mount Desert Island and the Maine coast as Captain John shares interesting tales and insights. A highlight of your outing is a stop to haul lobster traps, affording you a glimpse into the life of the fisherman.

Your memorable seafaring experience drawing to a close, return to the tender pier and your Crystal ship.
