Maine’s Atlantic Puffins Are Adorable To See On This Unique Scenic Boat Tour

Maine is full of impressive wildlife. Most people think of moose when they consider what animals call the state home, but there are so many others that are worth seeking out. With their brightly colored orange beaks, Atlantic Puffins are one of the most impressive to see. Each summer more than 4,000 can be spotted off the coast of Downeast Maine and eastern Canada. And the best way to do it is to take this beautifully scenic boat ride!
