Mission Statement

Frenchman Bay Research Boating is a 501(c)(3) organization committed to providing affordable, sustainable, reliable ferry services that simultaneously add value to the communities we serve by helping local researchers monitor the health and well being of Frenchman Bay and its inhabitants en route.

Perhaps most importantly, Frenchman Bay Research Boating endeavors for our ferry services to act as invisible “bridges across the Bay,” creating the kind of passenger experience that connects people and communities in new and different ways. Fostering economic growth, increasing access to affordable housing, developing and supporting new and sustainable environmental monitoring programs, encouraging visitors to explore Acadia National Park via bike or foot, and fostering curiosity and awareness of our marine environment, particularly in younger passengers, are all organizational priorities.
