Travel aboard the Miss Samantha to visit one of the crown jewels of Acadia National Park, Baker Island. Go ashore and spend over two hours exploring this fascinating 130-acre mostly park owned island, the 200-year-old Gilley family farmstead, and the Baker Island Lighthouse. This tour is guided by a park ranger/naturalist who will point out and identify the wildlife and history.
