Bar Harbor Cadillac Mountain Excursion Reviews

When you journey to the top of Cadillac Mountain (located in the world famous Acadia National Park), not only will you enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of Bar Harbor, but you will be standing in the highest point on the eastern seaboard of the U.S. It's an exhilarating experience!
Apparently Columbus Day weekend is the busiest weekend in Bar Harbor.
Apparently Columbus Day weekend is the busiest weekend in Bar Harbor. Cadillac Mountain was overloaded with tourists and our bus was originally turned away. We came back later and were allowed in.

We were driven in a bus to the top of Cadillac Mountain and allowed to walk around for a while. The tour guide was very informative. After the tour we had a lobster lunch and shopped by ourselves. We had to tender at this port.

Gorgeous town!
Gorgeous town! We took the trolley through the town, then the National Park Loop up to Cadillac Mountain. $20 if you buy from the trolley; about double the price if you book through the ship. The town provides free wifi in the park.

Since we did not make a tour reservation on board ship, we decided to take a tour to Cadillac Mountain while in town. Great tour on a "perfect" and clear day! Walked about town on our own, enjoying the shops and vistas. Great port! Folks with power wheelchairs or scooters should know in advance that they cannot take them aboard the tender from ship to dock. If unable to ambulate, you might miss this port. Read Less

The Cadillac Mountain was a good tour, however, we were confused as to why it took so long to get to the top when it seemed only a few minutes to get back down, I think it was to tour through the park, but from a bus that's not very interesting. I have never been so cold in all my life as we were on top of the mountain, the view was great, but we quickly ran around took our photos and hopped back on the bus to warm up. Read Less
