There may be other options, but I go to Smith Island via San Juan Cruises (whales.com). This year, its trips depart each Thursday out of La Conner. Note that the majority of the 45 people on this boat will likely NOT be avid birders (lots of families & photographers), & the boat is on a schedule so won’t “chase” birds. That being said, you will see Tufted Puffins & last year I saw a Horned Puffin two of the three times I went out. I recommend booking w a couple other birders; the boat does have a naturalist on board, but she has a lot of responsibilities during the trip & is not always scanning for birds. If there’s any room left, go for 7/21…I hear many Eastside Audubon members are booked that day. Yay!!
