My husband and I love nature and especially whales, but I have turned down tours in the past that I felt might cause stress to the whales and even harass them. Molly Bawn tours was the answer for me, a small, comfy and not-too-obtrusive boat,...More

We chose this tour boat because it was a small business. We were guaranteed to see puffins and as we were getting ready, we were lucky enough to see a Minke whale in the harbour. The crew were helpful and informative. Highly recommend!

The weather was not the best but we did manage to see a few Fin Whales which was an awesome experience. Saw lots of puffin which I was also looking forward to. There was a few bald eagles and other birds as well.

I wish my pictures could accurately depict this once in a lifetime experience of being surrounded by thousands of birds. Seeing the birds, especially the puffins, so up close and personal was awesome--thanks to Molly Bawn and our knowledgeable host Jeanine.

If you are looking for a reasonable whale watching tour with a very fine guide on board, this is a good choice. Little vessel, good captain and a very special tour guide. If you are lucky you may meet Jeannine . She is German but...More
