Loved this stop. My wife and I didn't take any tour, but took the ship tender to the dock at foot of the town. Shops and restaurants are an easy walk (though up a slight hill) from the tendering dock. I had a lobster roll at a restaurant just up a few shops from the dock. I would recommend going to the lobster pound and getting a whole lobster. The lobster pound is visible from streetside of the dock and a short stroll away. There are a wide variety of shops to explore and prices are reasonable.

This was my favorite port of the trip. The town looked so cute. I wish it wasn’t cold and raining so I couldn’t have explored. We took a bus trip through Acadia National Park and even in the rain it was gorgeous!

Was in Bar Harbor yesterday, had a wonderful day. They tender you in but don’t get discouraged as they have very nice and large tender boats that the use. Even if you are handicapped it’s very easy.
