We just loved this excursion. Sebastien made this a very positive experience for my wife. She was so afraid to let go of the boat. Sebastien was so calm and patient, and because of this my wife could enjoy the excursion and actually let go of the boat. The wet suit makes you float, you cannot sink. There were many... More

My husband and i decided to try this out, we were concerned about spending an hour in the water and not getting cold, the outdoor temperature had been 14 celsius during the day and 8 at night. We were reassured that our 14 mm of wet suit would keep us warm, and they were right. We were warm the whole... More

It was a rainy day and we were worried that we wouldn't be able to interact with any seals. But we still got to see up close a couple curious ones. Due to the weather and choppy water, the visibility was not great but it didn't stop us from having a good time with the seals. The guide (danny) and... More

I went to dive but was only offered the option of snorkel. The equipment was new and well kept. Basically, we were dropped off next to a colony of seals, we swam around and after some time we went back. my partner didn't speak french and no translation was offered when it comes to the 2 minutes of explanation given...

We were going to go snorkeling with seals, but Plongee was fully booked, however staff rented us all equipment and described where we should go. When we were snorkeling seals cubs were playing with us, swim around, sniffing, etc. It was really cool.

Friendly and funny staff. Great equipment. Very safe for everyone (the suits make you float !) and relaxing. Incredible sea life (lobsters, crabs, urchins, a few kinds of seals...). Respectful of nature. I expected to freeze, but ended up being warm in the very thick and buoyant wet-suits. Swimming with seals is an experience you should not miss !

Words cant describe how it felt to swim with this population of curious, gentle animals. They swam around us like curious puppies. The company and our guide were great with the kids, very helpful, friendly, enthusiastic and patient. If it wasn't two days drive for us to get there, I'd go again without hesitation. It topped all our lists of... More
