Walk across the Water to Bar Island

May 1 - Oct 31, 2019

Most of the time it looks like a boat would be needed to hike on Bar Island.  But twice a day at low tide, a natural bridge appears which leads to  Bar Island, Acadia National Park.  The natural land bridge connects Bar Harbor, at Bridge Street, to Bar Island making it accessible by foot, bikes, and all-terrain or other types of vehicles. To be safe, plan on having no more than 1.5 hours before and after low tide. Otherwise, you could get stuck on the island waiting for the next low tide to return.  Rumor has it occasionally local teenagers will offer a rescue ride in an off duty lobster boat dingy back to MDI, for a price of course.
