Luckily had the most perfect day. Prime time for Puffin viewing, as the chicks had not left their burrows yet!! Apparently August is when they start to migrate. Take binoculars, a wind breaker and a sweatshirt, plus sunscreen and a hat. I sat up top...More

Worth every penny for this two hour boat ride to Easter Egg Island where puffins and many other birds thrive. On a hot day, a great way to cool down. Real Audobon guides are on board to explain everything and they take enough time so...More

We did the combo puffin/whale watch cruise on the last day it was offered, Saturday August 13, 2016. Even though it was a drizzly, dreary day, fortune shined on us as we saw both puffins and two kinds of whales, fin and minke! We had...More

This was a very informative, but also fun boat trip out of Boothbay harbor to see the puffins, which nest in June and early July. These small, but colorful birds were nearly wiped out, as the early settlers in the area liked to eat birds'...More
