Donelda's Puffin Boat Tours is located in Englishtown on the world famous Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island that was voted the most beautiful Island in the world by Conde Naste Traveller. For nearly 20 years Donelda and her husband, John, lobsetered around St. Ann's Bay and Bird Islands. About 10 years ago she decided to buy her own boat and do boat tours to the Bird Islands from Englishtown. Because of her knowledge of puffins, she is known to many as 'the Puffin Lady'!
