SEASON: We open in mid-May to accommodate our serious birdwatchers who have come to rely on us to get them out to the islands for the Spring migration. Our Puffin Watches will end when the birds have migrated. This usually occurs around the end of August. With an expanding population and individual variation, the Puffins have been known to stay through Labor Day.

DURATION: 1 1/2 hours

NARRATION: National Audubon Project Puffin naturalists are aboard each evening to narrate, help with bird identification and answer questions throughout the trip. Pete Salmansohn, Education Coordinator for Project Puffin, is often aboard to offer his expertise. Dr. Stephen Kress, who founded Project Puffin in 1973, will occasionally join us as well. He is currently the Director of the Seabird Restoration Program and Vice President for Bird Conservation at the National Audubon Society.

PARTNERS IN CONSERVATION: A portion of each ticket sold is donated to Project Puffin to help continue their important work. To date, Hardy Boat Cruises has contributed over $125,000 dollars directly to Project Puffin.
