Cruise out of Frenchman's Bay as you are provided with fascinating information about the marine wildlife and lifestyles of Bar Harbor's whales.
Bar Harbor is a tender port. We were in port along with two Holland America Ships. Getting off the ship with a collapsible wheelchair was again a breeze. Only issue - the tender port - we where dropped on a dock with an approximately 100 feet, metal, incline ramp, at an approximate 45 degree angle, to reach the main thoroughfare. There were two dock attendants at the bottom and they helped push the wheelchair up the incline. I'm not sure we would of made it had they not been there to assist. The steep angle was due to the tide and time of day - when we left, there was a short roll to the tender boat with maybe a 20 degree incline. The Holland tenders dropped passengers on a companion dock, right next to the whale watching cruise departure point, and the incline there to get to the main thoroughfare was much more navigable. The Whale Watching cruise had a special boarding process for the mobility limited and it was a great excursion. We saw pilot whales which was rare for the season.
