- Travel with a naturalist guide
- Drive along one of Canada’s most scenic roads
- Up to six whale species to be seen during spring
Canada’s Charlevoix region offers some of the country’s most diverse terrain, and spectacular marine wildlife. During the spring months, up to six species of whale including minke, beluga and humpback, can be seen in the St. Lawrence Estuary, and even the occasional blue whale, the largest mammal on Earth. Departing from Quebec City, this Canada gift experience takes you through the province’s most beautiful landscapes, past scenic villages such as Baie-St Paul and Pointe-au-Pic, flanked by the Laurentian mountains, before you reach the coast and board your whale-watching boat.
You’ll be accompanied by a naturalist guide throughout the tour, who will explain the environment here and why it’s so suitable to whale. As you head out into the krill-rich waters, your crew will know exactly where to head for the best sightings, and before long you’ll be among these immense creatures as they feed. Whale watching in the wild is a breathtaking experience, and with so many types of whale here, plus the amazing natural backdrop, there can be few better places to do it than Quebec.
