Amazing whale watching experience!
What an amazing experience!!! While we were very lucky to see many, many whales, we realize that seeing so many is dependent on the whales themselves. That said, this Captain (Robin) was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and very respectful of the whales. The accompanying biologist was equally engaging and knowledgeable. The boat was comfortable, clean and they provided us with protective jackets that were in very good condition and very clean. The location is fabulous. It is a little further from Tadoussac but the experience is less “touristy”, also less expensive and high quality. I would go back to this establishment in a second and highly recommend it. I have been whale watching 4 times in the pas and this is by far the best experience all around I have had.Written on September 30th 2021
So Many Whales!
We had a great excursion on the large rigid hull zodiac with Pierre this past week! It’s open to the elements, and as others have mentioned, I’d recommend bringing your warm layers (e.g. wool toque, gloves, scarf, and warm sweater). The outerwear they provided was in excellent shape and very clean; it blocked the wind very well. You’ll overheat at the launch, but you’ll be grateful for your warm layers once you’re speeding out to the whales. I’d also recommend bringing a little daypack with some water, light snacks, and your hat, gloves, etc. We saw so many whales! Many groups of humpbacks, several fin whales and minkes, as well as porpoises, seals, and a beluga. It was very exciting and worth the drive to Escoumins from La Malbaie, where we were staying. Pierre was perfectly bilingual and shared his passion for the whales. No nature interpretation was offered, but a fabulous enthusiasm for these amazing mammals. Highly recommend this company and spending time on the water!Written on August 31st 2021
Fabulous day whale watching with Thai company. We had looked at several options both in Tadoussac and Les Escamins and had decided on this one after great reviews, safety issues (we had one nervous teen and this zodiac style seemed very solid) and their commitment to whale conservation. It was simply amazing is how I can best describe it. Our captain and whale naturalist where both excellent and knowledgeable. They translated for my family who spoke primarily English. It was a foggy day and I was afraid we wouldn’t see whales, but after about 30 minutes to driving down the coast we were fortunate to see a Minke whale, a fin whale and 7-10 humpback whales. A few seals were also playful by the boat. It was an awe inspiring event ans we felt very safe in the boats. They gave us jackets to keep us warm (it is cold out on the water) and everyone had to wear their masks the whole time. It is not something we will soon forget!

English speaking tour guide. Highly recommend!
We sailed at 1300 with this company and had an amazing time. In total,we saw 2 minke whales, 4 fin whales and (at least) 7 humpback whales. The humpbacks swam within 20 feet of our boat. Most of the tour was presented in French, but our naturalist was bilingual and made sure to explain in English, as well. She sat with my children on the boat ride home and answered all of their questions. We could not have asked for a better experience
