From Quebec City, a Full-Day Whale-Watching Cruise

1 Day


On a full-day, guided whale-watching cruise while in Quebec City, get up close and personal with some of the most amazing and majestic animals on the planet. Once in the town of Baie-Sainte-Catherine on the Saint Lawrence River, choose between a large, three-level observation vessel or a tiny, swift zodiac for two very different boating experiences. Enjoy a breathtaking view while you look for whales, seals, and beluga whales on your cruise. Includes collection and delivery in Quebec City.


  • From Quebec City, a bus excursion and whale-watching cruise
  • On the bus journey along the St. Lawrence River, the scenery was lovely.
  • For whale viewing, opt for a big boat or a swift zodiac.
  • Take a tour to see belugas, seals, and whales.
  • Information on the wildlife is provided by a certified naturalist expert.

How to Prepare

Take a break from Quebec City’s bustle and embark on a thrilling water journey. This all-day whale-watching trip starts with a pickup from a number of lodging locations in Quebec City and ends with a meeting of the tour group and the guide at Place D’Armes. Take a luxurious motorcoach along the Saint Lawrence River to the town of Baie-Sainte-Catherine, which is frequently cited as the gateway to the most breathtaking whale-watching location on earth.
Once there, choose between a much smaller, swifter zodiac or the three-level AML Grand Fleuve viewing boat for your whale-watching excursion (option chosen at checkout). The AML Grand Fleuve is regarded as Canada’s top surveillance vessel. The boat offers extraordinary visibility thanks to its numerous terraces, viewing platform, and glassed-in panoramic decks. For shade and weather protection from the sun, the top deck is covered. Even a bistro and gift store are present. In contrast, the Zodiac offers a much closer encounter with the whales and other aquatic life of the St. Lawrence River. It’s quicker and smaller, making it a more personal nature outing.
Both boats leave from the Saguenay-Saint Lawrence Marine Park’s central location on the Saint Lawrence River’s north shore, and their informative and entertaining narratives cover the geography, history, and nature of this part of eastern Canada.
After the cruise, there will be a drop-off and a return journey to Quebec City.
