Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Full-Day Whale Watching Cruise from Quebec. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Our tour guide (Yves) made the drive very pleasurable with all his knowledge of the area and his witty humour. We have a 3, 9 and 12 year old that equally enjoyed the trip. I would suggest that you bring warm clothes for the wale watching since the temperature out there drops by about 10 to 15•
I had a wonderful day with AML. The driver who picked me up at the hotel was polite and funny. The bus driver for the day spoke English, French, and Spanish. The scenery on the way to Baie Ste.-Catherine was beautiful. I am so glad that I chose the Zodiak boat instead of the large boat. Aside from the fact that going out in a Zodiak is fun, it is also a fast boat, so it can respond rapidly if one of the other captains radios that they've spotted a whale. There is no guarantee that you will see any whales at all, but I had the very good fortune to see a blue whale, a minke, a humpback, and several belugas. Merci beaucoup a tout!
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
Excelent !!!!.... especially Ives (our expert guide/environmentalist driver).... he is better than "the best"...
Thanks... Merci... Gracias !!!!!
Excellent experience, very friendly and interesting guide. Truly relaxing, yet, making a lot from one day.
Excellent trip! Water was perfect - saw blue whales, belugas, porpoises, seals and minke whales. Very professional and felt very safe. Would definitely do it again!
The tour was phenomenal . My husband and I enjoyed this experience very much and recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
The trip was very well organized and delighful. I strongly raccomend it.
It was a wonderful trip and want to do it again on a nice day!! The fog was kind of thick and we couldn't see much, but the pilot of the boat and the people on it made it fun anyways. We did see whales which was great. The bus trip to the boat was great. The driver knows customer service, was funny and entertaining.
I gave this a 5 star as the Viator is the way to go. Really enjoyed this.
Door to Door Service from your Hotel. A local taxi (shuttle bus) will pick you up and drive you to Chateau Frontenac to board a picturesque coach tour from Chateau Frontenac (Musee du Fort) along the picturesque St-Lawrence Northern coast line directly to your destination of Baie Sainte-Catherine. The coach driver (Yves) provides a humourous informative monologue along the way with a 20 minute stop for "weewee-wawa" and an opportunity to grab a fresh snack from a cheese factory. Boarding the "GRANDE FLEUVE" boat in Baie-Sainte Catherine for a three hour whale watching cruise a Naturalist-Guide will provide commentary on the variety of whales (along with their personalised names such as "tic-tac-toe" and "Snowhite") including Minke, Fin, Humpback and Beluga which we saw on our tour. Before returning to shore we also were provided a tour of the Tadoussac Fjord where we saw Belugas exiting the bay. Viator made the full day tour a ballanced blend of relaxing and very exciting. I highly recommend this tour with Viator.
