B&B With Puffin Cruise
Wed. Sat. and Sun from May 17 and then daily until the
puffins leave in late August.
Eastern Egg Rock in Muscongus Bay, is one of four tiny
Maine Islands inhabited by Puffins from late April through
mid-August. Hunted to near extinction in the late 1800s,
the Puffins are now protected here by the Audubon Society
and Project Puffin. You can take a late afternoon cruise
(one and a half hours) from New Harbor and see these
lovely birds in their natural habitat. There will be
an Audubon naturalist aboard to narrate the history
of the puffins and to point out the other birds including
a variety of ducks, cormorants and several species of
terns, including the endangered Roseate Tern. Whale,
dolphin and porpoise sightings frequently enliven the
trip. The boat leaves from New Harbor, a half hour from
Blue Skye, at 5:30 and returns at 7pm.
Combined with the splendid bird watching opportunities
here at Blue Skye, this is a wonderful break for nature
We’re offering a two night stay at Blue Skye
with a puffin cruise for two for $325.
B&B with Monhegan Island Day Trip
Available Mon. Wed. and Sat. from May 17th and then
daily from June 11 until the end of September.
A solitary island
10 miles out to sea, Monhegan Island is one of the most
beautiful islands along the Atlantic seaboard. Its unique
light and legendary beauty have inspired a myriad of
artists including George Bellows, James Fitzgerald,
Robert Henri, Rockwell Kent and Jamie Wyeth. Three quarters
of the island has been preserved “forever wild”
and this ‘wilderness’ is accessed through
a 17-mile network of trails. The bird watching, hiking
and artistic opportunities this creates are boundless
and beyond compare. The boat leaves from New Harbor,
a half hour from Blue Skye, at 9 am and returns at 3:15.
We are offering a Monhegan day trip and a two night
stay at Blue Skye for two for $355 plus tax.
