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.

Basket Star Fishing expert Ramlan Salm pulled something out of the water that he assumed was seaweed. When he eventually got the catch onto his boat, he realized that it was moving around like an alien. Luckily he captured a video of the strange creature to go along with his unbelievable story. After experts had examined the footage they surmised that the creature must be a basket star, an invertebrate related to a starfish. Basket stars have five arms that sprout smaller appendages over time. The ocean dwellers have the ability to regrow their limbs if anything ever breaks them off. 7. Chimera Lobste...
Collection of Bar Crossings that didn't go as planned for the skippers involved. This is not an instructional video on crossing coastal bars. If you are unsure of the correct technique, for your boat/hull type then contact your local marine licensing authority, Coast Guard or Marine Rescue and enquire about a bar crossing course. I can say however that every technique you see in this video is wrong! Disclaimer: I do not own any of the footage in this video, it remains the property of the original videographers.
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.

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.

Chummy Rich is a fifth generation boat builder from Bernard, Maine. Like his forebears going back to the 1800's, he is a master of the craft of building wooden boats. In this thirty minute film, Chummy, with his one of a kind Downeast narrative, takes us from lofting to launching as he and his crew from Bass Harbor Boat build the 28 foot wooden cabin cruiser Andromeda. The film was written by Gunner Hansen, with the music scored by Bob Bowman. Narration by Joe Marshall. It was filmed, produced and edited by Dobbs Productions with support from the Tremont Historical Society.

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.
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.
