Whale Watching Tour from Quebec City

1. Whale Watching Tour from Quebec City

Get an adrenaline rush in the waters of the St. Lawrence Estuary on a full-day whale watching tour from Quebec City. Visit the whale kingdom of Charlevoix, driving along one of the most beautiful roads in the province, passing enchanting villages, such as Baie-St-Paul and Pointe-au-Pic, and the wilderness landscape of the Laurentian mountains. Every spring, up to 6 different whale species can be seen frolicking in their feeding grounds off the Charlevoix coast, and this tour provides the option to see them on board a specially designed cruise ship. A naturalist guide will introduce you to the environment and describe the habits of the different species found in the St. Lawrence Estuary. Some of the marine mammals, great whales, and cetaceans you can expect to see in the krill-rich waters are belugas, minkes, and the mighty blue.

Great Experience

Since I am attracted to nature this was a good experience but would blame my luck couldn't see a single whale surfacing. It's unpredictable where they would pop out from. Wear good insulating layers, it's pretty cold on the water, irrespective what the temperature is on land. Totally recommend it.

Great experience!

Loved it! We were picked from the hotel on time, the driver was bilingual and was fluent in both English and French. We saw lots of belugas and little whales and spoted minke whale not too far from the ship. Highly recommend and more likely will be back next summer.

Waiting for the whales...

At 9:00 we moved with our guide/driver (a very kind and nice person). Direction: Baie St Cathrine where we will took the big boat to see the whales! And... founded! It was an amazing and exiting experience... Really suggested!

We travelled over 13 hours in hopes of seeing a whale. Not only did we see a whale .. we saw WHALES, over 10! It was truely amazing. Our tour bus driver was knowledgable and funny. Would do this again.. and again. Beautiful.

Amazing! Highly recommend it!!
