To All Oysters
Cadillac Mountain on Mount Desert Island is the highest point along the North Atlantic seaboard. During certain times of year, it is the first place to view sunrise in America. The Cadillac Oyster farm is on the northwest side of the island, where the mountain’s majestic silhouette is always in view. The oysters are just as beautiful and pearly bright, basking in first light and the waters of Mount Desert Narrows.
