Puffin Day Trip & Picnic III
July 3 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
This event has reached capacity. Please consider registering for one of our other events.
We are offering three special Schoodic Institute chartered tours to Petit Manan Island to get close up views of Atlantic Puffin, Arctic Tern, and other seabirds. Each cruise is limited to just 16 passengers to allow for some elbow room and premier observing. Thrill to puffins on the water or flying by at eye level so close you could reach out to touch them! This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss. We’ll then cap the experience back at the Ballfield Pavillion on the Schoodic Institute campus with a scrumptious picnic. Come celebrate your connection to nature with us!
Due to COVID-19 precautions, participants must provide their own ground transportation to and from Schoodic Institute and during all field trips. All field trips will be caravan style. All participants must wear a facial mask that covers nose and mouth during all tour activities, especially when social distancing is not possible. Changes to the status of COVID-19 precautions are monitored closely by Schoodic Institute and are subject to the guidance of the Maine CDC (and U.S. CDC).
Participants should bring binoculars. A camera (optional) can be fun as all tours are fairly scenic. Spotting scopes are useful but optional and your guide will provide one for group use, as well as guidebooks. Boat tours can be cold and damp. Bring appropriate clothing.
