  • Hardy boat tour was great! Did not disappoint. Saw many puffins, a seal and numerous other birds. Very informative and fun.

  • One of the highlights of our trip, this small space is filled with information about Puffins! It is free to enter, but please make a donation to keep their research and rehabilitation going!

  • Livestreamed puffins, what fun. Outstanding 20 minute video, wonderful gals at the desk, full of information and just waiting to share. Great fun things for the kids including their own puffin burrow. Things to see, things to buy. Glad I have the grandchildren as an excuse to go.
  • Amazing little place. Something for kids and adults to enjoy. Interactive, educational. Maeve was excellent at providing information, answering questions and promoting awareness for endangered birds. Best place for unique puffin merchandise. We live over 10 hour drive away, came to Maine specifically to see the puffins and the visitor center only added to the excitement!
  • Loved learning about the Puffins! Their recovery is due to a group of amazing human beings (spearheaded by women activists!) decades ago. Knowledgeable staff from the non-profit Audubon Society engage us tremendous knowledge, and one of the other staff was engaging a group of kids with a model of the research box the scientists use on the side. I am better of for having come here! And - they partner with 2 Puffin boat tours where your trip funds their work. We just got back from Hardy Boat Cruise one, and we saw a hundred or more puffins and other seabirds as they idled near the island. I’m grateful for their hard work - without them, we wouldn’t have any puffin tourism!
  • We were unfortunately unable to go on a puffin watching tour on our recent Maine vacation, so we stopped here on our way up the coast, which was the next best thing. Friendly staff, lots of information, and even a live cam of a puffin colony. Worth a visit, especially as it is right on US-1 in the neat little town of Rockland.
  • Nice short film. Cute and unique puffin arts, plush and shirts of all price ranges. The guide is very knowledgeable and passionate. Thank you for what you do!
