think of Gatherall’s Puffin & Whale Watch
This was so fun. Great guides and lots and lots of whales at the time we went out. Thanks for the show!!
Great guide and skipper. Knowledgeable and able to call attention to many points of interest . We went at the end of the season (mid-Sept) and expected few birds, so it was great that the crew gave good insight into the area & its ecology, and pointed out less prominent things that were available to view. I appreciated that the skipper had concern for some of the birds/wildlife which wouldn’t make it through the winter. Appreciated the Captain turning off motor while we watched birds in water nearby. Guide was humorous.
More than just a whale watch tour, you could go on any other and see whales but Gatherall’s make it a true Newfoundland experience.
Everyone enjoyed the tour. Thank so much. Family said it was the highlight of their trip!
I would like to everyone for full filling my wife’s bucket list it was great day with a great Crew.Cannot Thank You enough
Wonderful trip- really enjoyed the guides sense of humour! We’ve seen whales close-up before on the west coast of BC, but the puffins were special for us. We will certainly recommend your business to our friends and family.
This was a wonderful boat trip! I arrived late after the boat had left the dock, and they came back so I was able to join! Everyone was so friendly and informative. Also loved the songs and jokes. I took a couple other whale watching trips while in Newfoundland and Quebec, and I have to say yours was far superior to all the others. I was too early for whales so I will have to come back during whale season, but truly enjoyable none the less!
While I was in Newfoundland I signed up for 3 separate whale/puffin/iceberg tours and this was by far the best. I enjoyed the entertainment, the information and facts shared, and the Screeching in of some of the guests.
Thanks for making my trip so wonderful. I will be sure to book with you again when I come back to Newfoundland.
There are not enough stars! The tour was amazing and thoroughly enjoyable. Stellar tour guides and navigation!
Can’t wait to go again!
It was indeed a pleasure sailing with you. The weather co-operated and we must have seen at least 20 whales and countless puffins. You guys sure know what your doing. Will recommend…highly recommend you to my many friends who travel. Thank you again for a most enjoyable afternoon. p.s. my wife loved it so much she wants to go back…
Great tour of the bird island colony and the whales! The boys loved it! The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and entertained the crowd.
We had an awesome time!! Staff was very informative and a pleasure and treat to be around!! The boat is very stable and trustworthy, and also very clean!! Well worth the drive and money!! Definitely telling our friends and family about the awesome boat tour, thank you!!
Had a great tour…was foggy and didn’t see a whale but was worth the trip to see the puffins :-). Thanks
Fantastic tour. Saw so many whales and seabirds! Crew was entertaining and very fun. Would highly recommend it. My 8 year old loved it!!
My husband and I booked the Picnic with the Whales. The day we originally planned for had horrible weather and we were contacted prior to reschedule. We greatly appreciated Gatherall’s getting ahold of us to reschedule for a better opportunity of seeing wildlife. Michael was our captain and he was extremely knowledgeable and willing to answer all of our questions. The boat is very comfortable and we had a wonderful time on the water. There were tons of Puffins and other water birds, Fin whales and an active Humpback. Having gone on other whale watching trips in other parts of the world we know sightings aren’t guaranteed, but Michael followed every lead he had and we saw a great show just before our time was up. You can’t go wrong with Gatherall’s.
We enjoyed our trip very much. The commentator did an excellent job.
Great tour guides, funny & knowledgeable. Really enjoyed the live music. Amazing puffins and icebergs. Highly recommend this tour.
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.
We really enjoyed our trip with your company. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. The tour crew were top notch and good entertainers. They did an excellent job of seeing that we saw as much as possible and gave thorough explanations with great knowledge and humor. We will recommend your tours to our friends and those we meet on our trip through Newfoundland.
Thank you very much for a great tour. The staff was excellent and the boat was very nice.
