Check out what our past guests
think of Gatherall’s Puffin & Whale Watch
Overall experience was top notch.
Crew was excellent- entertaining, professional & focused on ensuring guests had good experience on boat, catching a glimpse of whales and puffins and even a few tunes.
Boat and admin facilities very clean, properly fit for purpose and inviting. The fact that we watched the crew clean every inch of the boat before we boarded did not go unnoticed. Thank you for that- it makes a difference.
It was so much fun! Sadly we didn’t see any whales but I would definitely go back again!
The staff was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The boat was very nice and we’ll appointed. We saw plenty of whales and puffins. We had a wonderful time.
What an absolutely fabulous experience!!! The staff and crew were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The excursion was fun, entertaining and fascinating.
I would HIGHLY recommend this experience!!!
Excellent tour, well run, entertaining, knowledgable about wildlife, stayed extra time when we saw a whale so that everyone had a chance to see.
There are not enough stars! The tour was amazing and thoroughly enjoyable. Stellar tour guides and navigation!
Can’t wait to go again!
We did very much enjoy our trip. The chalet is lovely and comfortable and we had to tear ourselves away.
Now my family have seen the pictures, they all want to come over – so I may well be back in touch with you when we
have made some plans!
Thanks for a great sail today. Beautiful to see the puffins!
You have this tour totally figured out! Loved Hilary’s singing.
I got awesome whale pictures. Thank you for a beautiful morning.
Wow, what a beautiful boat tour!!!
I have to say that this was the highlight of my trip.
Thanks so much!!!
The crew handled our screeching in magnificently, and we have the wet feet to prove it! Very good tour…appreciated the knowledge of the birds and sunfish, as well as the music and song. The 90 minutes flew by….pity that we didn’t see any whales, but it’s not a great time of year for them and the puffins made up for it!
The boat was clean and spacious, and the tour was well-managed. We would recommend it to anyone.
Excellent puffin and whale watching tour! The guides were knowledgeable and very entertaining, telling jokes and singing songs to make the trip more fun. We were lucky enough to see one humpback whale, though this is not guaranteed every time, but the guides and captain knew just where to look. Then we visited the largest puffin colony in North America, and saw thousands of puffins! Great experience overall, really glad I booked with Gatherall’s and not somewhere out of St John’s.
Very friendly and humorous crew. It was a great experience. I would certainly recommend Gatheralls!!
Once again Gatherall’s did not disappoint!! The whales were great but your crew is amazing!!. Great time. See you next year!
Service in this province is mediocre at best and business owners are not forced to improve their service as competition is rather limited in many fields. I am writing because I appreciate the invite to leave feedback…The service is great! The staff is funny, welcoming, and very knowledgeable about the product they sell. My only suggestion would be to have a more extensive Lunch counter with a selection or soups, salads, crudités in addition to sandwiches. I would also like this menu to be available on your website to be able to better plan our outing. I would also like to find a “what to bring” list on your website explaining that even though the weather might be hot and humid on the wharf, it can get chilly out on the water by quite a few degrees. Other than that, great job! We can’t wait to come back!!
Amazing tour! The crew was friendly and knowledgeable – and very funny. Beautiful scenery, zillions of puffins and seabirds, AND we were lucky enough to see many, many, many whales. We would highly recommend Gatherall’s to anyone looking for a tour – and a great way to get screeched in!
Got the Puffin shots I’ve been trying for …for the very longest. Thanks to these guys and an absolutely hands down, awesome team. We were serenaded, saw whales, puffins, AND a dancing dog! You have to meet Teddy! He alone is almost worth the trip. Spreading the word as we travel.
We had a marvelous time on the picnic with the whales. Good was perfect and the add on fishing was fun. Michael thanks for your great hospitality.
I took the 2.30pm trip and it was fantastic!!
Thank you all for a wonderful trip and organising the whales to behave so beautifully!
Going home to Australia very happy!
Hi, We had a wonderful time on the tour, thousands of birds, despite the rain and fog, and despite our being really tired from arriving at 1AM just a few hours earlier, but Luke and the crew made us all feel welcome and awake! I was shocked when I found out that he was still in high school, he is very mature and knowledgeable and personable and did an exceptional job of leading our tour! We have already recommended your tour to other folks we met along the way headed to SJ…thanks so much!
