“Great Trip!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We left Boothbay Harbor on a very foggy morning. I really had doubts that we would see anything. But after an hour and a half ride,the fog lifted and we started seeing whales. We probably saw at least eight and two were very close to the boat. It was an awesome experience I will never forget.

“Got to See a Puffin”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is as far south as a puffin will usually go. The trip lasts about 2 1/2 hours going out to Eastern Egg Island and back. If you want upper deck seats along the edge of the boat, you'd better arrive early. Our morning it was very, very foggy and the prospects of seeing ANYTHING did not look too good. On the way out an Audubon representative does a presentation about what to expect once you reach the island. It is well worth listening too. When we got there, the captain circled the island a few times and indeed there were puffins, as well as an assortment of other birds, just like the Audubon person told us. There was plenty to see (and hear) even though there was still fog. One puffin even buzzed and circled our boat. They are fast. On our way back we encountered some harbor seals along side our boat. If the weather had been a lot nicer I would give this attraction a 5.
