Yes, there’s a remote island in the gulf of Maine that is home to hundreds of puffins. Yes, of course it’s a magical place! Let us take you there.

Machias Seal Island is 10 miles off the coast of Cutler, Maine and 12 miles from Grand Manan Island in New Brunswick. Sovereignty of the island is disputed, with both Canada and the United States claiming it, but that doesn’t stop hundreds of Atlantic Puffins from vacationing there every summer!

Below is the remote location of the island. Not easy to get to, especially in rough seas!
