Thunder Hole reviews
Great spot, the sound is awesome, the force so powerful. We loved it. Not quite high tide so that must be beyond. Great walk down. Convenient parking but limited. Restrooms across the loop... more »
Nice quick stop on our walk along the coast; definitely heard the thunder before we got there and it wasn't even the perfect window for it. more »
Very cool spot. Walking up you hear the reason why it got its name. Not every wave coming in gives the thunderous blast but if you wait, you will get a good one. The tide was fairly low when we were there. Easy to get to right off the road with a good amount of parking or take the shuttle to all the destinations along the park.
We had to come back a second time to see it thunder, but it was worth it. An Acadia NP ranger told us to come 2hrs before or after high tide to see it at its best. Also, you need to time it to find the best set. Well worth going.
