Seal Island, south of Isle au Haut, is home to a summer colony of nesting puffins. They have brightly colored beaks during the breeding season. They feed primarily by diving in the water, and breed in large colonies on coastal cliffs or offshore islands, nesting in crevices among rocks or in burrows in the soil. Their short wings are adapted for swimming with a flying technique under water.
Nobody is permitted to land on Seal Island. Leaving Stonington at 11:00 am on , and , our fully licensed and inspected boat, the Mink, will carry you from Stonington to the Seal Island shores where the puffins nest. Aboard for the trip will be noted Isle au Haut naturalist Kathie Fiveash to provide descriptions of the avian and ocean wildlife along the way.
Bring water, sunscreen, cameras or binoculars and lunch if you wish.
