From Boston (268 miles) - follow Interstate 95 through to Bangor (exit 45-A - 395), then pick-up on Rt.1A to Ellsworth, and follow Rt.3 to Bar Harbor. Another route would be to take I-95 to Augusta, take Route 3 to Belfast over to Route 1 to Ellsworth, then back to Route 3 into Bar Harbor.

By Boat: Since Bar Harbor is an island and a popular place for both sailing and powerboating, there are many suitable moorings. You should check with the Harbormaster's Office at 207-288-5571. You can also take the new high-speed catamaran ferry "the Cat" from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia to Bar Harbor.

By Air: Bar Harbor is serviced by a local airport, the Hancock County Airport, located just 12 miles from the village, and by Bangor International Airport only 50 miles away.

Bus Service: During the summer months, Bar Harbor is serviced by Greyhound/Vermont Transit from Boston. Year-round, there is local bus transportation from Bar Harbor to Ellsworth and a shuttle from the Bangor Airport. Since schedules vary, it is best to check with the bus line.
