Maine Audubon Sunset Puffin Cruises

New Harbor -

NEW HARBOR -  Maine Audubon will offer naturalist-led cruises aboard the Hardy III to observe Atlantic Puffins and other rare seabirds in the wild. The evening cruises, on July 8, 18, and August 6, will be led by Maine Audubon naturalist Eric Hynes and Pete Salmansohn, coordinator of the Project Puffin restoration initiative.

This popular evening boat ride sails out of New Harbor to Eastern Egg Rock, where the boat will circle the island for great views of puffins, terns, and other seabirds. The trip returns to the harbor at sunset to combine birding and a lovely summer evening on the Maine coast. To register or learn more, call Laura at Maine Audubon at 781-2330, ext. 209.
