You’re in Montréal, stuffed to the brim with poutine and thinking, “I should really do something in Québec other than eat all of this fantastic food!”. Well, Canada has absolutely incredible whale watching opportunities and we are confident that the tiny village of Tadoussac, with its spectacular fjords, is one of the most beautiful whale watching sites in the world!

Our adventure begins with a friendly welcome from your guide and fellow travellers. This morning we visit Montmorency Falls, an impressive waterfall higher than Niagara Falls, before arriving in Québec City. The city is renowned for its historic defence walls, known as the Ramparts of Québec City. Be sure to climb this National Historic Site of Canada to enjoy spectacular city views and an unforgettable sunset. Tonight, enjoy a group dinner at the hostel and leisure time. (Dinner included).
Up bright and early for a day trip to Tadoussac alongside the spectacular Saint Lawrence River. We arrive at the small Francophone village of Tadoussac, one of Canada’s oldest permanently settled communities (initially founded by French-Europeans). Embark on a whale watching excursion, an experience renowned in North America for its diverse marine life. A mixing of freshwater from the Saint Lawrence River and saltwater from the Atlantic Ocean creates incredible biological diversity. Tonight, enjoy some poutine (Snack Bar is certainly recommended) to get a taste of local flavour; bon appétit! (Breakfast included).
All activities are included on our Whaler tour and although we recommend trying everything, you are free to join the group, explore by yourself or just take some time to relax and get away from it all!
Bring suitable clothing for the tour and comfortable shoes for walking. The weather in Canada is predictable but may be cooler at night. It's always wise to prepare, just in case of rain. Find out what else to bring on our FAQ page or contact us directly with any questions!
If possible bring a credit card with you whilst travelling.
Don't forget your camera! We guarantee you'll want to take photos of whales, incredible scenery and new friends!
