Bay Bulls is a located in sheltered bay, is only a few miles from St. John's, and has been a visited site since the late 16th century. Since then the site has been fought over by the French, English and Dutch. Like many coastal Newfoundland towns, Bay Bulls was a fishing town; Bay Bulls now touts itself as the "Tour boat capital of Newfoundland and Labrador."
The coastline boat tours allow you to see the Atlantic Puffin which breeds in colonies on northern seacoasts and rocky islands from April to mid-August. Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, Fin Whale and Harbour Porpoises are also featured on the boat tours.
