A wilderness & sea armchair adventure tour


This private armchair adventure, you can sit back and relax while following the St-Lawrence River, through endless forest, to a whale watching mecca, where the St-Lawrence and Saguenay Rivers meet the Atlantic Ocean, in an explosion of life, that attracts many species of whale/dolphin/seal.

Shortly after booking this tour, you will have purchased an excursion on a vessel with indoor/outdoor seating, that will take you past the towering cliffs of the Saguenay Fiord, as a naturaliste guide comments on blue, humpback, beluga, minke, fin, sperm, right, narwhal, bottlenose, killer whales. You may spot the tall plumes of mist formed by their exhaling and hear their blows.

You will stay the night in Les Escoumins, where you can purchase a bear watching safari, explore some gems only known to locals, dine at Manicouagan Fisheries, the next day you can buy a guided sea kayaking excursion. On your way back to Quebec City, you can do some shopping in Baie St-Paul and tour the Ste-anne-de-beaupré Basilca

A Recent Review of this tour

We traveled as a family, 2 adults and 2 kids. We had a great time with Brian. He was very informative, he took us to interesting spots that we would have missed on our own. He was very thoughtful and considerate of the kids. We came to Quebec for the whales, and were not disappointed!! Don't miss the kayaking. If you can upgrade to VIP on the whale watch tour, go for it! If you go to see the bears, eat first and be prepared for whatever the weather is. Stay as long as you can. It is worth the wait.
