Venture into Saguenay-St-Lawrence Marine Park on a 3-hour boat trip leaving from the pier in Tadoussac or Baie-Sainte-Catherine in Quebec. Encounter…
What people are saying about Baie-Sainte-Catherine
It was beautiful watching the whale and her baby passing us on both sides of the ship very close-- and then later the beluga --popping up all over the place even the seal looked exciting when moving slowly along the river, The Saguenay Fjord is impressive. I recommend the trip to everyone..The lady announcing the tour was excellent and very good information-- the right voice in both languages..
Cruise staff were friendly and efficient. Unfortunately the weather was wet and cold thus did not spend much time on top deck. Most time was spent on lower 2 decks or inside, thus it was hard to hear the guide over the speakers. Nonetheless, the cruise was enjoyable and we say 6 whales, albiet briefly !
Had such a lovely day on the boat. Amazing guide who was able to flick between French and English so we always knew what was happening. Saw 3 types of whales, some seals and the weather was fab (although slightly cold in the wind - bring a jacket!!) So glad we chose this experience!
The tour is very well organized. The driving to get there is amazing, stunning views almost all the way. They do all the can so you can see those magnificent animals, I wouldn't hesitate to book this experience. I'd advice to wear winter clothes, it's dam cold offshore.
Great boat, fast and furious! Saw a few whales but actually saw more when we returned to the bay and watched from the shores but that's the luck of the draw! Overall great experience though.
