Description

Depart from the pier in Tadoussac or Baie-Sainte-Catherine and head out on an observation boat on a tour of the marine ecosystem in Quebec's Saguenay-St-Lawrence Marine Park. On this 3-hour trip, you will have the opportunity to do whale watching, as well as observe geological formations such as the Saguenay Fjord.

As you sail along the waters of this marine reserve aboard the Grand Fleuve, keep your eyes peeled for whales. The area is best known for its colony of belugas, but you can also sometimes spot blue whales, minke whales, and fin whales.

Then continue your adventure with a short visit into the magnificent Saguenay Fjord! This inlet is 65 miles (105 kilometers) long and is sometimes as wide as 2.5 miles (4 kilometers). The fjord is also in Saguenay Fjord National Park, a park which overlaps with Saguenay-St-Lawrence Marine Park.

This was such a wonderful experience! We went in early October, and were able to spot many different kinds of whales, as well as seals and birds... We loved it. Our only three tips would be to: make sure to bundle up since it can be white windy, and then keep your camera on video mode and be a bit patient.

It was fun and beautiful. The whales were around us but far away compared to what I am used too in the stares we get a little closer. Everyone seemed to be more interested In the bigger whales. I wanted to see the belugas since that is something we will probably never see in California. The minke and finbacks were there and was surprised we only saw one seal pop it’s head up. Just the luck of the draw. I would definitely recommend the zodiac boats for a better Up close Experience just couldn’t do that this time with my mom. It was very cold so make sure you layer up. Also it had been raining so bring something to wipe down seats or towel blanket to sit on if you plan to sit outslde. It was hard understand the English commentary because it was a mix of French and English and too fast to understand most Of what was being said besides wow and 2 o’clock but we never heard what we were looking for at 2 o’clock but the French was lovely to listen too as well.

We were taken ro several spots and saw quite a number of these magnificent animals, mostly hunch back and mink whales. In the description, it said it is an English language tour. Majority of the commenns were in Frech with short comments in English
