We had a fantastic time on our whale watching cruise earlier this week. We saw numerous humpback whales, many seals and a few porpoises. Once they located the first whale, it was consistent and almost non-stop action. It was a calm and clear day and that helped. We stayed warm and dry and found our guide to be knowledgeable and friendly. It should be on your “must do” list when visiting this region.

I was really excited for this tour but left a little disappointed. We saw tons of dolphins at first, but then the boat moved away to look for whales. We spent an hour on the water looking and didn't see a single whale. I wish we could have just stayed by the dolphins and enjoyed them. We did get to see some seals at the end which was nice. I know it's not the company's fault the whales weren't out and about that day we went. But it was still disappointing, especially since the tour isn't cheap.

I was very unhappy with this company. My husband and I were scheduled for a tour on August 2 ,2020. When we got to to dock all covid signs were posted properly regarding social distancing but when I saw the boat filled to capacity shoulder to shoulder and knees to knees. I did not feel safe getting on board and therefore declined. They advised it was my choice. Now when I went in to get my money back they claimed they could not refund me. 160.00 may not be a whole lot but it’s the principal. The company tells me they were not able to social distance therefore the masks. I am sorry but I don’t find that to be a reasonable excuse. I believe in these unprecedented times consideration would be given to customers who did not feel safe to give them their money back. This business did not suffer from two people not getting on as two other people walked on at last minute to make it a completely full boat. I sent emails out to owner with same end result. No money back. I am very disappointed with this company

We just went for this 2.5 hour whale watching tour as part of the photography tour with SalvaFauna. We were given a raincoat. The trip was very interesting. We saw a few humpback finwhales, seals and seagulls. Priscilla, the guide was knowledgeable. You got to bring warm clothes as it is quite cold. Worth going. We saw some interesting rock formations of the Forillon National park.

Excellent bilingual service. Amazing once in a lifetime experience. We saw 5 whales, and it was a real thrill being out in the St Laurence in the big waves. The staff was very friendly and everything was well organized. Highly recommended!
