What You Can Expect
The choice of transportation in the water is yours – the AML Grand Fleuve is a large, three-level boat with a glassed-in main deck, observation platform, covered upper deck, a bistro and a bar; the zodiac is a small, open-air boat that holds either 24 or 48 passengers (depending on the boat) and allows you to zip through the water to enjoy super-close access to the whales and other marine life. Opt for the AML Grand Fleuve for a more leisurely experience on the water, or choose the zodiac for an exciting high-adrenaline adventure!
Both vessels depart from the north shore of the St Lawrence for an exciting encounter with whales, seals and belugas! Discover the many faces of the St Lawrence River, including the Saguenay–St Lawrence Marine Park, a lighthouse, fascinating islands and an amazing diversity of marine life.
Aboard the AML Grand Fleuve a naturalist-guide will share illuminating facts during your whale-watching journey, while on the zodiac your captain will provide live commentary on your search for whales. This is an extraordinary rendezvous with the nature of eastern Canada!
Please note: The minimum age to board the zodiac is 6 years. Pregnant women or people with back problems are not permitted on this cruise. Also, please note that tour includes pickup and drop-off from 25 different hotels, B&B's, inns, and motels in Quebec City. This excludes home addresses.
It was a great experience for us and enjoyed being able to see so many different whales, seals, etc.
We would do it again.
we all loved it!
The almost 3h drive from Quebec was worth the drive, we saw several whales and seals
This was one of the best tours i ever took. It was just amazing to see the whales and the bus ride along the ST Lawrence was very scenic with the upcoming fall colors. I felt the driver was driving too fast most of the time which some more people felt as well.
Fantastic in every way. Saw lots of whales, great guides, great weather. The smaller boat was definitely the way to go.
We had a great bus driver, Yves, who was very knowledgeable about the area we were driving through and what we could expect form our sea loving creatures. He was also able to take us through small towns because we had a small bus so got to see more of the beautiful coastline. We got to see 3 different types of whales and a large pod of sea lions. The water was calm was it was easy going. It was the first whale watching trip I had taken and it was wonderful. I would do it again, next time in the Zodiac boats..
Fun guide, 3 different types of whale and so much other wildlife
This tour was the highlight of my week-long vacation in Quebec City. We saw many whales and baby seals up close. I highly recommend this tour.
I had never been on a whale watching cruise, so wasn't sure what to expect. This was a dream come true! Beautiful day, courteous drivers, incredible guide, and being able to see the whales and seals and birds was just the icing on the cake this trip was a birthday gift from my husband - this is the wife writing!! I will definitely book with you again when I want to take others on this same trip. Thank you very much! Terina
The driver is so experienced and gave us information of whales, history of the area etc.
A wonderful experience of watching whale on a Zodiac boat! Unforgettable!!!
