Although Bay Bulls has the largest concentration of Puffin and Whale Watching boat tour companies that specialize in the Witless Bay Marine Ecological Reserve, they’re not as close to the reserve as Witless Bay and Mobile Bay. Although the largest ships are limited in where they can dock and are therefore limited to Bay Bulls as their embarkment point, smaller companies like Eco Tours and The Molly Bawn are located right in the middle of the Marine Protected Zone and close to where all the action is
Eco Tours runs a fast craft zodiac tour from their private wharf in Witless Bay. Departing with Eco Tours means you’re already in the Witless Bay Marine Ecological Reserve when your trip begins plus you’re on board a rocket fast zodiac that zips quickly along the water. Get ready to put on a bright orange colored survival suit and hold on during this fast-paced zodiac trip into the ecological reserve.
Molly Bawn Boat Tours
Located in Mobile Bay, right in the middle of the Marine Ecological Reserve, the Molly Bawn Boat Tour Company probably has the best location of all the boat tour operators in the Witless Bay Marine Protected Zone. The Molly Bawn is a smaller boat tour operator that has been around for ages. Because they depart from Mobile Bay, it’s common to see Humpback Whales and Minkie Whales right from the wharf. The Molly Bawn is also famous for Orca Whale sightings and has recently logged more than any other operator in the area. If you’re good with a medium sized boat and like a go-slow take-it-easy pace, this is the boat tour for you.
