What You Can Expect
The choice of transportation in the water is yours – the 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 only 12 or 24 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 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 south 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, lighthouses, fascinating islands and an amazing diversity of marine life.
Aboard the Grand Fleuve a bilingual 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. Binocular rentals are available on both vessels for that magical moment when you encounter the whales. This is an extraordinary rendezvous with the nature of eastern Canada!
A very well organised full day trip. Excellent coach driver/guide, comfortable coach and as Delta hotel was first pick up we actually had choice of any seats !! Cafe used for mid journey break a little small for full coach, but good quality and friendly.
Whale watch boat spacious with good visibility if a little "tired" internally, but with a very enthusiastic commentary from whale experts. (and clean toilets !)
Little choice of food from on board Bistro, would have been better to take our own and rely on them for drinks only.
Several whales of various types seen -- close enough to excite us without harassing them. Some superb photo opportunities.
Overall good value for money, an enjoyable coach trip through glorious countryside, and plenty of whale sightings close enough to satisfy.
Good ride there and back. Didn't see much whales but we saw some and enjoyed every moment of it. Thanks
