Newfoundland’s Whale and Puffin Boat Tour.
Visit the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve.
A true wildlife extravaganza!
A blizzard of puffins and a carnival of whales and the best hospitality you’re sure to find. Gatherall’s Puffin & Whale Watch cruise features the incredible Witless Bay Ecological Reserve. The Reserve is beyond compare in its ability to offer visitors a world class wildlife experience.
If you really want to experience puffins and whales in their natural environment, then why not visit them at home.
That’s right, the reserve is “The Home of the Atlantic Puffin”. With over 2.5 million seabirds including over 500,000 pairs of Atlantic Puffins, it’s undoubtedly the absolute best place to see them. The Reserve is also one of the best feeding areas for whales in Atlantic Canada. There’s no better place to find them! If you happen to be visiting during the early part of our season, you will also find yourself at the end of Iceberg Alley. By the time these mountains of ice reach our area they have been intricately carved and crafted by the waves and rocks to create the most incredible shapes.
Your enjoyment and satisfaction matters greatly to us. For over 30 years the Gatherall family and crew have been delighted to share this incredible experience with travellers from the world over. The Gatherall family, crew and staff are committed to providing you with the best possible experience each and every time you visit.
MAKE SOME MEMORIES.
Gatherall’s Puffin & Whale Watch Cruise
Depending on the season, there are incredible sights in store. Our coastal scenery is beautiful year round and is a treat in and of itself. Our cruise offers an incredible opportunity to experience wondrous seascapes, mighty cliff faces & pounding surf.
The waters of the Reserve is a favourite feeding area for the annual migration of whales that make their way to the waters of Newfoundland each summer. The peak of the whale season here runs from mid-June through to mid-August. Whales may be spotted before and after the peak season but we consider these sightings to be a bonus.
