think of Gatherall’s Puffin & Whale Watch
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!!!
I am born and raised in Newfoundland, however living in BC for 30 years now. I come home most summers. This was my first boat tour. I was so looking forward to the Puffins and was delighted to see them up close and learn so much about all the varities of birds. Amazing. Knowing full well that whale sightings are very seasonal, I was truly amazed and delighted with all the whale activity. Dozens of whales putting on a show. I feel very humbled by it all. Thank you.
This tour was absolutely amazing. First of all my 6 year old niece was terrified. She did not want to go and once on the boat she begged to get off. The captain actually came down to talk to her and was very reassuring that she would be fine. He told her that she could ride in the wheel house with him and she would have the best seat on the boat. He was super with her. She stopped crying and did ride in the wheelhouse with him and by the end of the tour she was all over the boat smiling and saying she was going back. Thankyou Al for being so kind to her. Because of you she overcame a fear of hers and experienced something she really enjoyed. The whole crew on this tour was awesome. Very entertaining and very informative. We were lucky enough to see many whales and puffins. Would strongly recommend Gatheralls and will definitely be back. Thank you guys so much.
Saw 3 different whale species and numerous bird species. Our guide was courteous and went out of his way to help us spot specific birds.
The day we had on the water was fabulous! So much better than I expected. The captain and his crew, were exceptional! We had a spectacular day with lots of whales and puffins….we even seen 3 moose up on the hiking trails! My kids just loved it!
I would highly recommend this tour for people of all ages!
Once again Gatherall’s did not disappoint!! The whales were great but your crew is amazing!!. Great time. See you next year!
It was fantastic ,very interesting and appreciated…
Great tour. We saw whales, puffins and more. Time flew! Would recommend it to anyone.
We really enjoyed our tour. Whales, birds and staff were great.
The music was fun and a welcome addition.
Great, friendly staff. Luke was very talented and entertaining. Thank you for letting us stay in the cabin.
First-rate experience with Gatheralls today! We were so fascinated watching the puffins and listeng to the informative commentary about their lives that we had almost forgotten about whales ! So to then see a fabulous minke whale was a huge thrill. The friendliness of the crew combined with their obvious love for what they do was a joy to share.
Thank you all – an unforgettable experience – we will talk about this trip to beautiful Newfoundland for years I am sure!

Thank you for a very enjoyable tour. The crew was very friendly and informative, as well as entertaining. Seeing so many different kinds of birds in huge numbers, as well as being fortunate to see minke whales, made it totally worthwhile.
We will definitely recommend Gatherall’s Puffins and Whale Watch to our family and friends.
Thank you very much for a great tour. The staff was excellent and the boat was very nice.
Such an amazing experience! We saw many puffins and whales and we were also so lucky to see a lovely pod of dolphins! The crew were really friendly and knowledgeable and made it an even more fun trip for us. Thanks for everything Gatherall’s!
Thanks so much for a fine day on June 29. We appreciated the knowledge and professionalism of the crew as they showed us puffins, guillemots, gannets, kittiwakes, Minke whales and more. We were also glad that they were willing to wait at sea long enough to see at least three humpback whale. We couldn’t have asked for more.
Awesome boat tour Staff makes the tour
Saw whales and puffins
We were interested in a group event as part of a conference. Gatherall’s took care of all the arrangements – transportation to/from the hotel, the boat tour, dinner, and entertainment. It was also incredibly easy to book – they set up a group event page for us on their website. There were about 90 attendees and all were thrilled with the experience. We even saw some whales! As the contact person, I can say that Gatherall’s did a terrific job for us. The entire event was reasonably priced, lots of fun, and a highlight of the visit to Newfoundland.
Great day, nice weather. The islands and the birds are amazing. The puffins are so cute and plentiful. Water crystal clear, rock formations also. There hadn’t been many whales sighted recently but we were fortunate to see a humpback. He/she came to the surface and blew a half a dozen times. The crew is very knowledgable and the two young ladies sang beautifully. Large safe functional boat, great crew, outstanding natural resources and abundant wildlife. Would strongly recommend.
Just a fabulous experience for our party of four. This was our 13th of 14 days in Newfoundland and we had continuously been promised puffins and whales at many other locations but none had materialized until we took a boat tour with Gatheralls.
During the tour we were provided with constant information on both the various whales that we saw and the different types of birds that we encountered including the elusive puffins, of which we literally saw hundreds.
The best value of any tour that we took in Newfoundland.
The experienced crew were knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of the passengers. One of our party developed sea sickness and he was quickly assisted and made to feel very comfortable.
Just an A-1 experience.

Second time we have done this tour with Gatherall’s and it never fails to impress! A great day on the water, lots of close up whales and most importantly, an incredibly entertaining crew of professionals. Thank you Gatherall’s!
