This trip was even better than I had anticipated, we got lucky with perfect weather. Captain Andy and 1st mate Tyler were very knowledgeable, friendly and quite humerous. There was good chemistry in the group, so lots of laughs and amazing photos. Overall just a blast! I would highly recommend this trip to all nature lovers and photographers.

If anyone ever wanted to 'be a puffin' or at least be with the sea bird puffin, you MUST take a tour with Captain Andy Patterson to Machias Seal Island. From a long time bird watcher, this was the best birding tour I have ever experienced!! Besides being a conservationist, Capt. Andy has a rich history of this area, a... More

It started to look like the weather was going to prevent us from making the trip we had planned and, as these book up well in advance we thought that we might miss the opportunity. However Capt Andy kept us updated the days leading up to our scheduled trip and, fortunately the weather moved through allowing us to go. The... More

What can I say? My first thought was, Puffins? A trip to see Puffins? I am so glad I changed my mind and joined my husband on this amazing experience. Captain Andy and his First Mate put us all at ease, answered our questions, and spoke eloquently and knowledgeably about the Puffin population and other sea birds in the area.... More

We enjoyed this adventure in July of 2014 and 2015. The weather was foggy both times (Northeast Maine Coast fog happens). We were able to get hundreds of shots each time because of the close proximity and large number of birds in all directions. The Blinds have windows on all four side. The puffins are all around. Captain Andy is... More

Captain Andy delivers where it counts: • Prioritizes safety • Generously shares sea birding expertise • Takes the extra step to insure you get the most out of the experience Although Captain Andy is unable to control the weather, he makes sure everything else is perfect. Our trip was incredible: safe, lots of birds (Atlantic Puffins, Razorbills, Common Murres and... More

Captain Andy and his First Mate provided a great experience on the water. They were both were VERY knowledgeable about the area history, the seas, the pelagic birds, and other marine life. We had beautiful weather and calm seas for our trip so the landing on the island went smoothly. Once on the island, we were escorted to one of... More

This trip was wonderful. Captain Andy did a wonderful job getting us on the island under "iffy" conditions. Getting on the island is the highlight of the tour and just amazing to watch the birds. I would highly recommend this tour. Book early we booked in Feb as soon as the permits were given out to the boats. Stayed at... More

An experience not to be missed. Reserved this trip in January...only 12 people a day are able to land on Machias Seal Island to watch the puffins & other sea birds. Captain Andy & First Mate Tyler are great...always thinking of safety. They are informative about the area and wildlife. We met at the harbor in Cutler at 7am. The... More
