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

The cruise is about perfect if you aren't sure how you'll react to being out on the water. At around two hours you get to see a lot of the Maine coast, including light houses, and hear all about the features of the geography and...More

What a great day! I took the Kennebec River scenic cruise which the captain knowledgeably narrated. The open water ride was windy and choppy which was quite fun. As we headed up the river we saw eagles, osprey, and harbor seals. The captain told about...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
