Bar Harbor, Maine

Mount Desert Island is Maine’s largest island and home to Acadia National Park, one of the most treasured national parks in the United States. Take a week away from the busyness of everyday life to enjoy nature, freshly caught seafood, and luxury for a Mount Desert Island private yacht charter. There are a selection of quaint restaurants and pubs to choose from on Mount Desert Island if you want to try a meal or drink ashore, especially in Bar Harbor, as well as adorable shops, including wine shops where you can sample wines and gourmet cheeses.

Acadia National Park—a breathtaking mountain range in Maine—is the largest attraction of Mount Desert Island. While portions of the park’s 47,000 acres are situated on the coast of Maine, on the Schoodic Peninsula, the bulk of the park is on Mount Desert Island. There are an abundance of scenic hiking trails to select from, as well as a number of small beaches to explore—perhaps while enjoying a nice picnic lunch. Nearby the park is the Wild Gardens of Acadia, a beautifully maintained garden and a lovely display of the natural habitats of Mount Desert Island.
