think of Gatherall’s Puffin & Whale Watch
Excellent tour,conducted by a knowledgeable and warm,friendly staff and crew.
Had a great time. Puffins and whales as far as the eye can see. Great captain and great crew. This was my third time on this tour and it seems to get better each time.
I got soaked but it was totally worth it! Starting with the pickup from my hotel in St. John’s so I didn’t have to navigate my way to Bay Bulls and finding out my driver was also the captain of the trip, I enjoyed every minute. We managed to sight some minke whales, the crew was lovely, I enjoyed the singing and commentary and the island of birds was magnificent.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. You provided an extremely courteous service from the moment it was booked. Your staff is very pleasant and humorous. That I like. The tour guides shared fabulous knowledge about the birds . Very informative . Will be happy to recommend you to family and friends.
Hello, my name is Connie and my husband and I are from Perth,Ontario. We took your boat tour on July 23 at 10:00 a.m. and we had a wonderful time. We saw tons of birds at the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve and also tons of whales. The crew couldn’t have been nicer and we were treated to great music by 3 of your staff who sang and also played the accordion and drum. Thank you for making the end of our stay in Newfoundland absolutely perfect. We highly recommend Gatherall’s for your Puffin and Whale watch tour.
The tour was great and the guides were fantastic.
We had a great time! Even though we did not get great whale sightings, we did see lots of puffins and other seabirds, and the trip was a lot of fun. Thanks for helping us become honorary Newfoundlanders. We are proud to make that claim! 🙂
Fabulous! Loved it. Very professional and organized. Lots of whales today. Incredible
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our Puffin and Whale watch Tour on Friday, June 23. Saw lots of whales and 1000’s of Puffins. But what made the trip extraordinary was the commentary and entertainment on board while sailing. This was a highlight of our whole trip to St. John’s. Thank you to Captain Al and your marvelous crew.
It was an amazing trip that was made all the more fun by the crew. Loved the singing, commentary on the whales and puffins, and even the bad jokes. I have already recommended Gatheralls to several fellow travelers we have met. Your love of the sea and animals that call it home is evident and I apprecited you sharing it with all of us on board. THANKS!!!
What a blast! We saw tons of whales, puffins and an iceberg! Could not have asked for better. And the crew was hilarious, entertaining and helpful. Great day had by all!
We had a great time! Saw whales and lots of puffins. Guides were informative and funny. All around very enjoyable. Highly recommend.
We had the pleasure of experiencing your tour on Sat. June 24 at 1030. All your employees were most courteous and
helpful. The Captain was very knowledgeable and extremely humourous! Whales didn’t cooperate during tour, except for a brief glimpse of the back of one sliding through the water. However, the bird life was incredible and delightful. Thanks for a wonderful tour!
Awesome – the staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable! The tour was definitely the highlight of our trip to St. John’s.
Excellent customer service!
There are not enough stars! The tour was amazing and thoroughly enjoyable. Stellar tour guides and navigation!
Can’t wait to go again!
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 went as a big group and we all had an amazing time! The entertainment was fantastic, the whales and puffins were incredible, and the whole experience was phenomenal! I will definitely be back!
REALLY great experience! Very nice people and the trip was informative, amusing and comfortable – I often get sea-sick but the catamaran is so smooth that I didn’t have any problems. Too early when we went for whales but we did see an iceberg and the birds are amazing. Learned a lot about puffins, murres and kittiwakes and had fun doing it. I would recommend this for the whole family.
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.
