Re: Puffin Paradise aka Skomer Island

A really good place to see Atlantic Puffins close up is on Machias Seal Island at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy. It is accessible by boat tour from Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, or from Maine. Machias Seal Island is a Canadian wildlife refuge and light house island. Google to find tours.

There are also two species of puffin in the Pacific. I've seen the Tufted Puffin in the waters off Cape Flattery on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington in June. One gets really close to both species at the bird cliffs on St. George Island in the Pribilofs off Alaska. Several companies offer tours to St. George.
