Extremely accurate bathymetric map of Bar Harbor and Mt. Desert Island, Maine and surrounding area. The second largest island along the Eastern seaboard, Mount Desert Island has been a popular vacation destination for more than 150 years. First popularized by affluent urbanites in the mid 19th century for its rustic appeal, the idea of preserving the island caught on quickly. A large portion of the island was purchased privately, then given to the federal government and established as a national park. Known as Acadia National Park today, that land — set aside long ago — attracts more than 2.5 million visitors each year; people escaping city life to hike, bicycle, and horseback ride its automobile-free carriage roads, soak in the beautiful scenery, and appreciate the foresight of those early visionaries.
This three dimensional map is carved from Baltic birch wood, framed and has a acrylic covering to protect the wood. Professional cartographers are used in the creation of each individual chart in order to insure the utmost accuracy. Some maps come in two sizes in order to fit virtually any area in the home, office or boat. We have charts from areas across the U.S. available on a drop ship basis. This is a great item at an unbelievable price. If you are searching for a particular area, please call or email.
The color will differ slightly with both the frame and background as each of the maps are hand stained and may vary from the picture.
