Hardy Boat Cruises

Hardy Boat Cruises offers ferry service to Monhegan Island mid-May through mid-October departing from New Harbor daily at 9 am and 2 pm and returns from the Island at 10:15 am and 3:15 pm. Our Puffin Watches to Eastern Egg Rock depart daily throughout the summer at 5:30 pm. These trips are fully narrated by National Audubon and are a unique and highly educational ecotourism experience. Other trips include Seal Watches, Lighthouse Cruises and Fall Coastal Cruises.

They don’t know they’re adorable and exotic-looking, but the restoration of these “sea parrots” on secluded islands off the Maine coast has created one of New England’s most anticipated eco-tourism trips. These aren’t beach-lined, bring-a-picnic islands, but open Atlantic shelters for nesting puffins, which are once again, after many generations, thriving. Several boat operators take camera-toting birdwatchers to a range of puffin habitats; your choice depends on your departure point, how much time you have, and cost.
