In the spring - from mid-May through the end of June - we also offer our Puffins, Lighthouses and Seabirds tour. A great trip for the birder in your family! this 3 & 1/2 hour trip takes you offshore to Petit Manan Island where the puffins nest. Once out there we 'sit' in the water and the birds tend to come around and fly around the boat - typically excellent sightings of puffins as well as other pelagic seabirds. We also make a stop by Egg Rock Lighthouse and Winter Harbor Light as well as Petit Manan for the lighthouse lovers. See seals, harbor porpoise, eagles, osprey, other wildlife and some of Acadia National Park on the other side of the bay - the very scenic Schoodic Peninsula. Find us at 119 Eden St.,
