You will spend some time with the Puffins while sailing around this beautiful and lively Island. You will then head out to the whale watching area and spend the rest of the tour with the whales. On the way back the crew will give you some hot chocolate and cinnamon buns to round up the tour.Did you know that Puffin Island is home to over 200.000 puffins that spend the summer there nesting?
