think of Gatherall’s Puffin & Whale Watch
We had a wonderful time on the tour! The staff was very friendly, and the size of the tour was just right.
Thank you so much for a perfect day! We completely enjoyed everything about the tour – the boat, the crew, and of course the whales and puffins. The boat was comfortable and roomy, I never felt like I couldn’t see the action. Every Gatherall’s person we talked with was friendly and knowledgeable, and helped to make the tour a success. Thank you again!
We enjoyed every minute of it! There were lots of whales and the crew were super! Thank you!
We took my 90 year old mother on her first-ever whale-watching expedition this morning. The weather was great, and we were so glad that the whales cooperated! The singing guide was a nice touch, as was the east-coast music that was played during the cruise. Thanks so much!
Far exceeded expectations! Just wanted to see my 1st Puffin – saw thousands, & the whales were so numerous I didn’t know where to look! What a show they put on!! There was even a Humpback named Bruce (my sons name, who I was in the area to see). Very moving.
Staff were great & informative, but it was nice when they gave us a couple minutes of quiet to enjoy the sounds of the birds & the whales. The boat ride was comfortable even with all the wind. I work at the Auk Island Winery in Twillingate & will be recommending your tour to anyone on my tours!
What a great trip. We seen lots of whales. Thank you Luke for screeching us in. It was a great time. Evan & DeeDee
Great adventure. Saw whales tales and Puffins. Crew was entertaining. Would recommend!
Great tour and experience! Saw thousands of puffins and at least 20 whales. Good amount of time spent in each place and a lot of information about the wildlife and area. Luke and Jack were entertaining and knowledgable tour guides – impressed they can keep that up after a long season and many tours a day!
Would recommend and come back in a heartbeat.
Great trip to see whales and puffins this weekend!
It was a wonderful trip. The captain and staff have a great sense of humour and thanks for the extra music and stories provided by all.
Next time leave a Tip jar!
What a spectacular boat trip! The crew were all amazing! Luke was wonderful with his music and interesting commentary! Very knowledgable! Saw so many whales and puffins, and even an iceberg in the distance!!!! It was great!!!!!!
It was great! The crew took good care of us, and the whales could be seen close by the boat. We would definitely recommend it to others.
Great views of several humpbacks! Service was friendly and courteous, over the phone and in person. Thank you!
Wow!!! Our first time whale watching and what a beautiful day. You guys did not disappoint with an abundance of whales breaching close to the boat and a very informative crew as well. That girl had the voice of an angel and that udder guy (Luke?) came around and talked with us about our experience which was such a personal touch. This crew was great! We will tell our friends and recommend YOUR tour boat as it was comfortable and full stocked with beer and other refreshments. We loved the Screech-in and your whole crew was humorous and worked well as a team. I know every boat load will bring more people to your tour as it was word of mouth and a great pamphlet that brought us to you today. This will be the highlight of our trip and we will have the memory of this wonderful day forever. “Remember that time on the whale boat………….”
Our tour was excellent! Jim and Hillary were so informative as well as entertaining! We felt totally safe the whole trip, the catamaran appeared to be well maintained and we were constantly informed of any changing conditions. We will always remember today..the sun SHONE , it was WARM and we had a great tour. Thank you for the iceberg! and the birds of various species…too bad there wasn’t a whale to be seen…and Hillary’s fabulous singing. Whether or not everyone involved in the tour is family, it felt like a sincere enterprise. We would most certainly recommend taking part.
Thank you Gatherall family and associates.

Five Stars for sure!
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.
You have a great tour. Your staff and skipper were all very friendly and went out of their way to make this a trip to remember. Thank you very much.
Thanks for a great trip, I really enjoyed watching the puffins such unique creatures. I really appreciated the personalized shuttle pick up/drop off service.
What more can you say when you have a beautiful day, great boat with friendly, a knowledgeable crew including a beautiful songbird, almost flat seas and many, many whales followed by hundreds if not thousands of birds including wonderful puffins everywhere. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Gatherall’s and would recommend it to anyone. Many thanks for an amazing look at nature.
