I had such a wonderful time with a Chris. He was so informative. You can’t see and appreciate the entire island until you see it from 2000 feet

This was top of my list of things to do at Acadia National Park. Was worth every penny! Pilot was very knowledgeable. Scenery was breath taking. We couldn't believe how awesome our pictures turned out. Only wish we had done it earlier in the trip.
