*We offer free shuttle services for our Tour Guests only: If you have booked a tour of the island with us, we offer a complimentary pick-up and drop-off at your preferred location in Bar Harbor. Whether you are staying in a Bar Harbor hotel, coming into port off a cruise ship, or meeting us at the Visitor Center in Hulls Cove, our transportation is free. If you need a pick-up and drop-off at a location outside of Bar Harbor, we are happy to assist you for a small pickup fee.
- Cruise Ship Passengers
Over 185 cruise ships visit Bar Harbor each season. We are there to meet every ship. You will be taking a tender from your ship to downtown Bar Harbor. There are two locations which you may disembark.
The most common tender location is the Harbor Place pier. If there are two or more ships you may dock at the Harborside Hotel Pier (where our building is located). For cruise ship, we have representatives at both pier locations. Our drivers are uniformed in ROYAL BLUE and WHITE coats and shirts that say AT YOUR SERVICE TOURS. We greet you with your name on a sign, at street level at the top of the tender ramp. We would highly recommend making reservations in advance for whatever you would like to do while in port.
- Staying in a Downtown Hotel
Hotel Pick-up & Drop-Off: We will pick up at no cost at any downtown Bar Harbor Hotel!
With our Tour Service, we pick you up at your hotel so you don’t have to worry about parking in crowded Bar Harbor (busy summer months make parking nearly impossible and new parking meters make it costly to park). No stress about finding a spot!
- Staying Outside of Town
Pick-ups outside of Downtown Bar Harbor will have additional costs or you can meet us at the Hulls Cove Visitor Center of Acadia National Park at no additional cost. Parking there is free all day. Hulls Cove Visitor Center is clearly marked on Route 3 as you are driving into Bar Harbor.
- Coming by Private Boat
We can pick up at any pier on Mount Desert Island to start the tour. Pier pickups in Bar Harbor are free. Pickups from Great Harbor Marina, Manset Piers, or any of the piers in Northeast Harbor will incur some additional cost.
