Night Sky “Under the Stars” Boat Cruise

Image credit: Bar Harbor Whale Watch Co.

Image credit: Bar Harbor Whale Watch Co.

In partnership with Bar Harbor Whale Watch, we are proud to present several exciting Night Sky Cruises during Acadia Night Sky Festival featuring Wabanaki storytelling.

Departs at 7 PM (boarding begins at 6:15PM)

Trip time: 2.5 hours, returns at 9:30PM

Prices – All tickets $45

Join us on the 130’ jet -powered catamaran Atlanticat for a night-time boat cruise. As the sun sets we will travel out among the islands of the bay and along the shores of what the Wabanaki Indians called “Pesamkuk” (MDI). From using constellations in navigation and storytelling, to the supernatural healing powers of the elusive Star People, the Wabanaki have worked with the stars for over 12,000 years. John Bear Mitchell, University of Maine professor of Wabanaki and Multicultural studies, will share Maine native stories about the relationship to and beliefs about the night sky. BHWW naturalist Zack Klyver will provide a short presentation on the “Celestial Navigation”. After these spoken presentations, we will cruise over the ocean looking up at the darkening night sky while listening to a selection of enjoyable celestial themed music pieces including the theme to Superman, ET, Bolero by Ravel and Star Wars by John Williams. We then turn our attention to the night sky from the top and bow of the boat with local expert naturalist and amateur astronomer Lynn Havsall. We will learn stories behind the constellations and many wonderful facts about the amazing universe we live in. Lynn will use a laser pointer to call out and describe constellations, planets, stars, and distant galaxies.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • Trips are weather dependent – please call after 3:00pm on the day of the tour to make sure the trip is still going out.

  • Please know these tours are popular and often sell out early. We limit the number of passengers to provide ample viewing. Please make your reservation as early as possible.

A special treat for our visitors! John from Northern Stars Planetarium will have his portable planetarium on site to teach us about the night sky and its importance to peoples across the world. Visitors will have the opportunity to sit inside an inflatable planetarium to hear stories and learn more about the cosmos. This program is geared toward families with young children.

Stick around after the program and make your own constellation viewer with an Abbe Educator in our Community Gallery!

Participation in this program is $10 per person and is free for Abbe Museum members. Space is limited, reservations are required. To reserve a spot please contact educator@abbemuseum.org.

Abbe Museum Summer Camp

Camp Kids Hike Sieur de Monts.JPG

If you’re looking to end the summer on a high note, join us from August 19-23 for the Abbe Museum Summer Camp! Our experienced educators have crafted an action-packed session full of games, stories, crafts, songs, and learning opportunities, all centered around Wabanaki culture. This educational, immersive camp is wonderful for ages 7-12.

This year we will be highlighting astrophotography and archeoastronomy with our campers through the week of camp. Science, culture, and art all in one space!

Limited space available. Costs vary, click here for more details and the application.
