Witless Bay Ecological Reserve


During the summer, the four islands doting Witless Bay turn into the largest puffin colony in North America. Boat tours get you close to the cliffs of the island and in sight and sound of all the puffins you'll ever want to see.


Along with the puffins, the islands house storm petrels, kittiwakes, and murres, amongst others. Moreover, depending on how early or late in the season your tour runs, you may catch site of whales or icebergs.
