Atlantic puffins are nesting on an island that is just a short boat cruise from Schoodic Institute. We are offering a special guided program package that includes dinner and breakfast, an after dinner presentation, an optional morning bird walk, and a 3-hour cruise to see puffins and their neighboring nesting birds at Petit Manan Island. Join Seth Benz, Schoodic Institute’s Bird Ecology Program Director and former seabird biologist, for an in-depth look at the species and ecology of a vibrant seabird colony. Package includes lobster dinner, breakfast and bagged lunch, evening presentation, boat fee and transportation to and from Schoodic Marine Center.
We will be offering the package program on the following six Fridays/Saturdays during the 2020 breeding season:
June 26/27 • July 3/4 • July 10/11 • July 17/18 • July 24/25 • August 14/15
Event begins at 5:30 PM on the Friday and ends at approximately 3:00 PM on Saturday
