“Fantastic boat tour! Best I've been on in St. John's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

I've been on two other boat tours in the St. John's area, and found Mullowney's to be the best I've done. I did one out of St. John's harbour and the other out of Bay Bulls. I thought Bay Bulls was a better location for a boat tour, but the other tour I did out of Bay Bulls was far too crowded. I chose Mullowney's simply because I wanted a less crowded boat, and it ended up being a far better experience in every aspect than the other tour I took out of Bay Bulls. The crew on Mullowney's were excellent at pointing out birds and whales, and were very knowledgeable. There were only six of us on board, which made it very easy to see everything and move around the boat. We ended up being out for 2.5 hours, instead of 2, because there were a lot of whales out that day. The larger boat tours wouldn't have done that. I highly recommend this tour.

“A Newfoundland Whale Watching Adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2008

I have just returned from my first vacation in Newfoundland. Every aspect of my trip was wonderful, from the friendly, gracious people to the breathtaking scenery of Signal Hill, Cape Spear and the culture and very tasty local cuisine. The highlight of my trip was a whale watching trip aboard the 'Mary Vincent' operated by Mullowney's in Bay Bulls. This tour was an incredible way to spend an afternoon viewing the rugged coastline, an iceberg, minke whales, puffins and murres. The crew onboard this immaculate, spacious and comfortable ship were very friendly and knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend Mullowney's whalewatching trips to anybody who wants to turn a vacation to this wonderful province into a definite experience to remember!
