On Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017, two helicopters (a Bell AH-1W SuperCobra and a Bell UH-1Y Venom) made a quick visit to Bar Harbor. The SuperCobra landed at the town athletic fields to retrieve a cell phone one of the crew had left at a local restaurant earlier in the afternoon. Footage courtesy of Kate Hall Jordan.
The Marines made an epic retrieval after one of them left his phone at a Bar Harbor, Maine, restaurant on Saturday. As the tale goes, according to the Mount Desert Islander, six Marines ate lunch at the Thirsty Whale that afternoon. Later on in the day, server Jess Witherell says she got a call with the ID listed as being from the Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport in Trenton, Maine. “How far away are you from the town ball field?” the caller asked, to which she says she responded, “Well, are you walking or driving?” “We’re landing a helicopter at the ball field,” the voice on the other end said. That’s actually not as dramatic as you would think. LifeFlight helicopters often land at the baseball/soccer field when transporting patients from the popular vacation town However, these Mar...

I'd never been whale watching before, let alone gone out to sea on a boat, so this was the coolest experience ever! We went whale watching in Bar Harbor, Maine with the Bar Harbor Whale Watching Company and we saw Finnbacks, Humpbacks, and dolphins up close (right next to the boat) and from afar! If you're ever in the area, I highly recommending adding this excursion to your vacation.

We found a basking shark on a gorgeous, calm summer day. Sometimes they are very skittish, but not this day! This filter-feeding shark hangs out near the sea surface and has modified gills called gill-rakers that filter tiny food particles from the ocean.

By Video Journalist Waldo Cabrera We travel up north to visit Bar Harbor, Maine, near Acadia National Park, and it's a beautiful day to take a boat out for whale watching. A naturalist from Bar Harbor Whale Watch tells us how whales came to be so abundant in the area. It turns out that a current stemming from Nova Scotia rushes to Maine and produces a large number of plankton for whales to feed on. Whale watching is not just for sightseeing. Scientists observe and document environmental and ocean patterns. As for tracking whales, they follow them by recognizing the different tails.

This is some video clips and photographs of our trip with Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company. We had great weather and just after arriving at the area, we happened upon a mother and her 8 or 9 month old calf. The calf put on a show for us, rolling around and slapping the surface of the water with its fins. We also got to see a group of 4 adults but unfortunately they were mostly viewed by the other side of the boat.
We received a report of a blue whale sighting in the central Gulf of Maine on Sept 4, 2014, from the tuna fishing vessel F/V Linda Sea. This is one of very few sightings of a blue whale in the Gulf of Maine, and the first known sighting out of Bar Harbor. Credit for the video goes to Captain John Stanley and Crew Gene Thurston. NOTE: The harpoon visible in the last section is a tuna fishing harpoon.
