Boating, Fishing, and Travel Information for Northeast Harbor, ME
When God created Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park, he didn’t forget boaters. He created Northeast Harbor.
Well, of course, it was really George B. Dorr and John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who put the pieces together of what would become one of America’s greatest natural treasures, but there’s no disputing that the location of Northeast Harbor just so happens to serve as an ideal seaside basecamp for exploring Acadia. The harbor itself, just 300 yards wide at its entrance, provides excellent shelter while the shoreside services available to boaters could not be much more ideal.
Boaters are not the only ones to recognize the beauty of Northeast Harbor – it has become one of the most exclusive enclaves on the coast, with celebrities and hedge fund managers alike buying up the estates that dot its shores. Such residents haven’t completely locked up the town for their own personal use, though, with the delightful downtown still serving as a wonderful place for a stroll and the Asticou’s Azalea Garden and Thuya Garden both offering a chance to experience a horticultural marvel. And at the end of the day, your dinghy is only a few steps away!
If you are looking for a way to enter Acadia National Park through a distinctly more relaxed doorway than you will find in Bar Harbor and Frenchman’s Bay, Northeast Harbor represents a wonderful option for boaters and other coastal travelers.
