Quebec City: Whale Watching Excursion with Bus Transfer

1. Quebec City: Whale Watching Excursion with Bus Transfer

Discover the wonder of whale watching on a day trip from Quebec City. Benefit from comfortable round-trip transport by bus, and the choice between a big boat or zodiac whale watching excursion.  After morning pickup, depart Quebec City for the beautiful area of Baie-Sainte-Catherine, near Tadoussac. Sit back and relax on the scenic drive. On arrival to Baie-Sainte-Catherine, you’ll board either a big boat or be outfitted for your zodiac experience.  The big boat offers inside and outside seating, a covered roof, restrooms, observation platform, a boutique, and a cafeteria. The zodiac offers a more intimate and adventurous encounter, as you observe the whales from water level. Your bilingual guides on either vessel will be more than happy to share information about the whales and surrounding area. Help the naturalist, the captain, the crew, and the other passengers spot the giants of the sea.  Breathe in the fresh air and admire the North Shore of the St. Lawrence River as well as the tiny island of Ile Rouge or the lighthouse "Phare Au Fond Prince." After your 2.5- to 3-hour excursion, board the bus for the return journey. Tour concludes with drop-off in Quebec City.

It was an amazing adventure riding in the zodiac [the driver was very knowledgeable and friendly] on the Gulf of St Lawrence which leads to the Atlantic Ocean. We saw some Humpback whales! What a spectacular sight to see. An unforgettable trip. The bus ride there was also amazing with the wonderful mountain and water views. We enjoyed the bus trip didn't have to worry about the drive there. The bus driver and the guide were very knowledgeable and funny. We definitely recommend this Whale watching Excursion with Bus Transfer!

So thankful for the opportunity to see so many whales and seals. The trip was comfortable and safe. One thing that may be helpful is for coughing personnel wear masks given COVID times.

It was truly amazing to see these animals in their natural habitat! Seeing whales dive and breathe is truly breathtaking! I strongly recommend the zodiac as well as warm clothes

Amazing experience, saw lots of different whales. Time flew too quick. Be aware that is can get very very cold in the Zodiac. The windchill was brutal.

Wonderful ! Passionate and friendly guide! Thank you for this unforgettable excursion! We strongly recommend
