Acadia's Birds & Whales

This four-day tour is offered to showcase seabirds, pelagic birds, and whales. By design there will be two different boat trips. One gets within close photo range of the puffins and terns of Petit Manan Island, an active seabird nesting colony. The second goes farther out on the expansive waters of the Gulf of Maine in search of whales and pelagic birds, normally a five-hour excursion. We’ll also have ample time to explore a couple of area hotspots in the vicinity of the Schoodic Peninsula to look for some terrestrial specialties such as Spruce Grouse and Upland Sandpiper.
