The docks are centrally located, at the bottom of the town's public parking lot, and are home to commercial fishermen, as well as recreational craft. The location at the south end of town, along with the tides, provides a bit of privacy.

Bar Harbor is a pretty but very touristed resort town. Expect crowds. Many excursions leave from adjacent Harbor Place, including whale, seal watching, & kayaking. The .75-mile-long Shore Path, with spectacular views of Frenchman Bay, heads south from here past lovely Agamont Park and the elegant Bar Harbor Inn - the 4-masted schooner Margaret Todd, the ferry to Winter Harbor, departs from its pier. Or walk right up the hill; shops and restaurants line Cottage, Main, Mt. Desert and Worcester Streets ('til 9pm.). Or stroll north toward the mansions - at low tide walk across the bar to Bar Island.
All vessels are encouraged to use the RECOMMENDED ROUTE for deep draft vessels entering Frenchman Bay found on NOAA Chart 13318, 18th edition, August, 2002, in order to avoid conflict with fixed fishing gear which is prevalent in the bay outside the limits of the Recommended Route.
