I highly recommend this Tour service. We went on a morning tour on a Zodiac. We donned the necessary flotation suits, and we were off! The whale migratory patterns in the area suggested that most pods had moved on, but we were still fortunate enough to witness a Minke whale. We were taken into some tight spaces amidst "stack" formations, and even nosed around some sea caves due to the size and maneuverability of the craft. We observed Puffins on the water, diving and making short flights to new fishing/feeding spots. Our guide was good natured and knowledgeable. We had a lovely time.

This boat tour is so much more than a whale and puffin tour. The scenery, rock formations and sea caves are amazing. Being in a zodiac allows you to get up close to shore and even into the caves. On our tour we saw puffins, murres, jelly fish, the captain even got a sea star for us to hold and luckily, even though it is late in the season for whales, we saw a humpback whale breach. Thank you so much for an amazing tour!

Our group of five had a great time on the boat with Captin Bob. We saw many Humpback whales, Puffins and Jellyfish. The captin knew the names of all the birds and he took us up close to the shore to be able to see it all. The boat trip was very exciting as we crused along the Ocean. We recommend the trip to everyone, our teens loved it!

We had an amazing tour with Captain Bob. The boat ride alone was so much fun! We saw a pod of dolphins and 2 humpbacks - which was an unbelievable experience. Also toured along the shore and saw so many puffins. Book your tour with them!

We had a fabulous day with Captain Bob! We saw many humpback whales up close! He was a lot of fun with a fantastic sense of humour! He didn't rush us and went out of his way to give us the best experience EVER! Bob even took us to see a bunch of caves and took us right into a couple! The benefit of a zodiac! He caught a couple of a starfish to show us and showed us the jellyfish too! I will never take another regular whale watching tour again. The whole experience was amazing and I HIGHLY recommend it!! Thanks Bob for such an incredible day and experience!
