A quiet and relaxing alternative to other Bar Harbor boat tours, Island Cruises is based out of Bass Harbor. We have been family owned and operated for over 20 years. Our primary vessel, the 40-foot R.L. Gott, is a “lobster” style passenger boat that carries a small and friendly crowd of no more…
We have joined Captain Eli on the R.L. Gott for several different cruises. Each time has been a wonderful experience!
We know the owner and his son. This is an exceptional nature cruise out of the backside of MDI. The boat owners are knowledgeable, humorous and extraordinarily able.

“Located at the end of Great Long Pond. You will pass on your way to Big Camp. You can rent kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards.”

“The Dry Dock Located at 24 Main St, Stonington, ME, 04681 Clothing Store While you're waiting for the ferry to take you out onto the water to Isle au Haut in Stonington (or a Lighthouse Tour or a Puffin Tour or a Lobster Fishery Tour), stop in to the Dry Dock, a woman's clothing store. Be careful! You might spend more than you intended to! This yummy store is a lost spot for every member of our family! Stonington also has lots of art galleries. The lady who created the art, which is on every wall at the Camden National Bank in Blue Hill has a gallery in Stonington. She is incredible! Her gardens are full of sunlight and color and beauty! Afterwards, dine at any one of Stonington's romantic restaurants located on the waterfront. You'll have really arrived! Stonington has gorgeous sunsets! After dinner, check out what's playing at the Opera House. In operation as a movie house for over 100 years, in summer the Opera House host s lots of summer stock theater and musical entertainment. Stonington is a dry town. The lobstermen got rowdy one night and the town said, "That's it! We're no longer serving liquor." I think you can order wine with dinner, however....”
