  • We decided to take the one hour long Puffin tour at the last minute. The booking receptionist was efficient and pleasant. The Capitan was knowledgeable in boating and birds of the area. The boat has blankets and extra binoculars, and holds 10 people maximum. The boat had a plastic enclosure the Capitan lifted when we arrived at Puffin Island. We saw many puffins, eider ducks and other birds. In contrast to several other boats (which require passengers to wear full thermal protective suits), the plastic enclosure allowed us to wear our normal clothing and still see the birds up close.
  • Came here with my best friend for the 1 hour puffin tour. There were only two other people on the tour with us, so it felt almost like a private tour. Because of the size of the boat, I doubt it gets much larger than that, which is a great selling point. Plus, the smaller boat is capable of getting closer to the puffin nesting grouds, so you can see them better. I had such a blast, and got to see more than I was expecting, along with some explanation of puffin habits without it devolving into a lecture. It was pretty much perfect.
