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.

This was our 3rd tour this week and definitely the best. We enjoyed seeing lots of whales, Puffins and Kittiwakes. The company was very accommodating in that we had a later cruise booked, but they had no problem changing the time when we arrived 2hrs...More
