What to Expect
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.
