The most spectacular performer among the whale species, is certainly the humpback whale.
The humpbacks will amaze you with their spontaneous jumps out of the water (called breaches) at unexpected times and places throughout the Saguenay – St. Lawrence Marine Park.
Please visit our humpback whale picture gallery on Facebook!
The harbour porpoise is definitely the smallest and cutest of all the whales ! They tend to congregate in groups around the Saguenay – St. Lawrence Marine Park and we often see several of them pacing out vessel as we progress in the water.

There are several species of sea mammals that frequent the Saguenay – St. Lawrence Marine Park. They often come in close proximity to the shore to feed, much to the enjoyment of the thousands of visiting tourists that come by every year. Quebec’s North Shore is not only a feeding area, but also a playground for whales and seals, and we are fortunate that Les Escoumins, Grandes-Bergeronnes and Tadoussac are their favourite locations, just as it is for visiting tourists.
Our photo galleries of the blue whales, fin whales, humpback whales, minke whales, the St Lawrence belugas as well as the harbour porpoises and seals are a tribute to the dedication Croisieres Escoumins has to future generations of whale watchers who may wish to return someday to Les Escoumins, Quebec, Canada. Bon Voyage on your vacation.
