Let the Schoodic Ferry introduce you to the rugged beauty of the Schoodic Peninsula. Relax as you cruise across Frenchman Bay, unconcerned about traffic or parking. Encounter a lobsterman hauling traps, a porpoise surfing the waves, a scientist discovering more about the Bay, or simply enjoy a new perspective of Acadia National Park. Sailing daily from College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor and the Schoodic Marine Center in Winter Harbor. Pets and bicycles ride free.
Ever wondered which islands within Frenchman Bay are a part of Acadia National Park? Join us aboard the Schoodic Ferry on Tuesdays and Thursdays May 31 – October 6 as we explore the history of how and when islands within Frenchman Bay came to join this national treasure, and what the preservation of those habitats has meant for the Frenchman Bay ecosystem. Narrated Schoodic Ferry trips depart from the Schoodic Marine Center in Winter Harbor at 11:15 a.m. and from College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor at 12:25 p.m. Bicycles and pets ride free.
