The tour was great. As you can imagine it depends a lot on the weather. The day I went out was overcast and a little rainy, but the seas were calm. It is a 45 minute ride out in calm conditions. There isn't much to see on the way out or back in. Once there it's hard not to see... More

It was a beautiful day with calm seas and sunny skies. We had booked two tours on the chance that one would be canceled and that's exactly what happened last Thursday. Today, Sunday, was much different. We had read an article about the puffin blinds tour which apparently is out of date. The article stated that you would have to... More

We drove 1,000 km from Kingston, Ontario hoping for the best, and we couldn't have chosen a better day, better seas, and most importantly a better host. Captain Andy went 'overboard' to make sure we saw everything there was to see, and even took us on an extra stop to see some seals on a nearby island. The tour starts... More

My family could not have asked for a better experience! On a gorgeous early June day, we had the rare opportunity to land on Machias Seal Island to witness these phenomenal birds. Captain Andy and Tyler did a fantastic job leading this tour. Both were knowledgeable, friendly and clearly passionate about the animals and the surrounding area. As a birder,... More

Captain Andy and his assistant did a fine job of making sure the trip went smoothly and no one even got wet feet in making the transfers from land to skiff to boat to small landing boat to shore and back again. It's more than just the boat journey part -- he gives a ton of information and is willing... More

Before we went I didn't have any idea what a puffin was never mind where Cutler was. Not looking forward to a eight hour drive to see some bird! Let me tell you I think this was one of my most favorite trips ever. The scenery was outstanding,Capt. Andy was very 'personable and knowledgeable, Tyler was awesome! The island we... More

I have been to Machias Seal Island 3 times with Captain Andy of Bold Coast Charter. Always a great and informative tour. It was sunny with calm seas for all 3 trips I was on. Make sure to go on a shore landing trip! I was there once in July 2009 and twice in July 2013. There were plenty of... More

Captain Andy runs THE BEST tour out to Machias Seal Island to view Puffins and other Alcids nesting on the island. I won't go into too much detail since the previous review explains about the number of puffins still on the island late in the season, and I share the same thoughts about my experience. My husband and I went... More

We go out on boats all the time to see lighthouses, so we're experienced boaters, using all different boating companies. This was our best trip ever. We were rescheduled twice due to bad weather, so I'm surprised someone said that the captain took them out in high seas and fog and I have trouble believing it. We understood that we... More
