Bar Harbor Whale Watch

When visiting Bar Harbor, Maine, a whale watching trip is a must. The Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company sails daily throughout the season from the pier of The Harborside Hotel & Marina in downtown Bar Harbor.

AtlantiCat, our high-tech luxury catamaran, is the newest high-speed whale watching vessel in Maine, and quite possibly the world. She offers an advanced active stabilizing system and has 360-degree rail-side viewing on all decks, guaranteeing everyone a front row seat to the action.

Humpback, finback and minke whales, seals, otters, dolphins, porpoises, lighthouses, puffins and eagles are some of the beautiful sights you will have an opportunity to see. Our Galley includes a variety of sandwiches, snacks and refreshments, including alcoholic beverages. We are the only whale watch that offers on-site parking so you may enjoy the voyage knowing your car is in a safe and secure location.
