Machias Seal Island - the only way of accessing the island....by small boat and small dock. Andrew Patterson, standing in the boat, runs tours for the nesting shore-birds during the summer known as Bold Coast Charter Company. He does a wonderful job and would highly recommend his boat trip. He's very knowledgeable and extremely humorous to keep everyone engaged. We went two raining/foggy days in a row in July, but for the most part 70% of the time spent on the island was rain free. The quality of the photos suffer, but it is what it is!
