  • A must see attraction at Acadia when the tide is middling. If the tide is too high, you don't get the acoustics of the incoming waves going into the hole, and if too low, it doesn't quite reach.

  • Thunder Hole is a great stop in Acadia National Park -- not just for the noise, but also for the phenomenal views, which are absolutely some of the best in the park. Plenty of vistas available up and down this stretch of the road, and a great spot to stop and relax for a while.
