We found this company online. The price was right so we thought we'd give it a shot. The ramp down to the boat was very steep. They did offer assistance to anyone who needed it to get into the boat (a few steps). The boat was clean. Our trip was uncrowded which also made it more enjoyable. The trip is a little too short. It takes 30 minutes to get to the location and then 2 trips around the island and then 30 minutes back. We were able to see 2 puffins. One somewhat easily and the other one not so much. If the trip could be extended to make a few more laps around the chances of viewing would be greater. All-in-all it was enjoyable and a nice ride.

We joined Hardy Boat Cruise for their first puffin cruise of the season last weekend (5/21) and enjoyed it. We saw puffins (about 50 or so) along with other seabirds. The crew was very professional and knowledgeable. The trip was reasonably priced at $24 per person. The trip lasted about and hour and a half. We had a rainy, cold night for our cruise, but I guess that is to be expected this time of year. Overall, we had a great trip and enjoyed getting a look at the puffins. Be sure to bring your binoculars and dress warmly.
