Island Activities

Isle au Haut is a very quiet, secluded island. While staying here you are welcome to bike or hike through Acadia National Park, investigate our rugged shoreline, watch local lobstermen haul their pots, revel in the pleasure of seeing porpoises and seals, watch occasional windjammers and sailing ships, and enjoy some the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises you will ever experience.  For more photos of Acadia National Park, as well as our wild, wind-swept coastline, visit our Photo Gallery

Available to our Guests:

  • Bicycles
  • 15' traditionally-crafted wooden Whitehall Rowboat for rowing on calm days
