Description

Set off and meet the whales during a cruise on the Saint Lawrence River, departing from Québec!

In the morning you will travel by coach from Quebec to Baie-Ste-Catherine. You will board either a zodiac or a cuise boat depending on your choice. By choosing the cruise boat, you will enjoy a 3 hour cruise and a calmer tour and if you opt for the zodiac, you will enjoy some speed and will navigate the waters close to the whales for around 2 hours 30 minutes.

You will admire the landscapes of the banks of the Saint Lawrence River while listening to commentaries from your captain/guide. You will observe the whales in their natural environment. You will also get to learn more about the surprising life of the largest marine mammals and about their migration patterns in the region.

You will head back to Québec towards the end of the day, after a day full of emotions!
