The LOC has organized a boat tour of the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve. The islands are home to North America's largest Atlantic puffin colony and the second-largest Leach's storm-petrel colony in the world, and are an excellent area for whale watching!

Participants will leave Memorial University by bus at 4:00 pm, and should be on the water by 5:00 pm and back on shore by 7:00 pm. A lobster supper is included in the package and it will be served at O’Brien’s “The Sailor's Galley Restaurant”. Participants should be back at on campus by 10:00pm.
