The cruise and whale watching was great but we were not prepared for a 3.5 hour bus strip to get there and another 3.5 hours to get back to Quebec City.
A day well spent

The tour was organized nicely, from hotel pickup till drop. Yves was a delight as a coach driver and guide, hilarious in his commentary. Zodiac experience was great with some close sightings.

Great time worth the full day excursion. Family of 4 with 2 teenagers, we enjoyed being on the Zodiac which is a bit more adventurous, but fare warning we got very wet from the waves. They did provide you with good adequate foul weather gear. Saw multiple different whales including a humpback. Excellent guide who presented scenery/whales in 3 languages. The larger boat was dry with bar & bathrooms but we preferred the Zodiac. Perhaps different feeling if winter. Highly recommend.
Don't miss the whale watching .it's amazing. But don't forget to book the zodiac instead of the bigger crowded boat.

Don't miss the whale watching . It's amazing but don't forget to book the zodiac instead of the overcrowded boat . The zodiac comes really close to the whales
Awesome day of whale watching

This was an excellent adventure with Yves as our bus tour guide. The zodiac is definitely the best way to see the whales. We were very happy with the entire experience!
Fantastic whale watching trip!

Fantastic adventure for the family. All super well organized, we saw many many whales up close and personal. Zodiac definitely a must if you want the best. Bus guide was excellent, road trip to the boat was also great.
Great day out with whales 🐳🐳🐳

We are really happy with this tour! We got to seen some humpback whales dive (which is quite rare), belugas, minkies and seals. The driver, Yves, was hilarious and an endless source of information about whales and the St Lawrence region. We really recommend it! One hiccup, please note that the pick up location is not the Frontenac hotel as it is mentioned on the page but rue Saint Louis. Thanks for this great day out!

Only issue that we had was that our boat captain often forgot to give his commentary in English. Did see a lot of whales.
Good

I enjoyed more the way in the bus than the Whale watching. In the bus, we driver was our guide, who explained about the Quebec history. Unfortunatelly, we couldn't see a lot of Whales and the guides there don't worry about our expectation of see them.
AMAZING SIGHT

This 3 hour cruise is amazing. No guarantees to see any whales, but it seems most cruises do. Things they don't tell you, but you should know....the water in the St. Lawrence River at this location is only 4 degrees Celsius, so its very cool on the boat outside (I did the River Boat not the Zodiac) so bring a warm jacket! Head to the lower level upon entering if you are interested in food and drinks.
