O’Brien’s Whale and Bird Tours, Bay Bulls, Newfoundland

Thanks to Cecilia for mentioning Bay Bulls and their boat cruises. We choose O’Brien’s Whale and Bird Tours. They saw humpback whales the day before we arrived, so we were hopeful, but regardless, I wanted to see a puffin!

Here is the boat we went on:

We quickly learned that puffins are really hard to photograph! The boat was rocking and the puffins flap their little wings and are quick little buggers! All the puffins flying by the boat had a little fish or two in their beaks. Here are a few of our “best” puffin shots:

Boat cruise was only to be enjoyed with Jeff’s raincoat and my new O’Brien’s toque!

I pleaded, but Jeff refused to get his picture taken with the mermaid. I think it had something to do with all the people standing in the parking lot that would have watched 🙂
