Watch out for icebergs and wave to breaching humpback, minke and fin whales on your way towards Witless Bay Ecological Reserve, where over 500,000 puffins line the shores. Packed with 2.5million seabirds, this reserve offers a world-class opportunity for wildlife lovers to see unique species in their natural habitat. There are plenty of photo opportunities across the cruise too, so you can take memories of your special sightings back home.
