We are so glad we went up with our pilot Dan for the 55 minute flight over Mount Desert Island and the lighthouses. It was so beautiful, and a whole new look at the island. Well worth the money. Highly recommend this activity!

Wonderful flight touring lighthouses. Pilot was extremely good, both in history and on flying. Got the shiny side up and the greasy side down, which is the most important thing in flying. Of course, just joking😀. Recommend this flight wholeheartedly!
