  • We had a lot of luck this day there because we saw 2 no blue whales too far and full of whales. It is very cold on the St. Lawrence as big jackets they provided we were actually necessary even though it was a sunny day. Great experience!

  • We chose the Escoumins cruises for their more environmentally friendly approach to the observation of whales at Tadoussac 30mins and were able to make a 2-hour whale watching cruise. Beautiful shared memories of 3 whale observation, observed closely in a clemante weather the afternoon in a zodiac. On the other hand, very disappointed with the reception, I have not too found the warmth of the usual Quebec (little information on the staggered departure time of 2 h 30 weather - can we understand - but at this time there, it's good to keep up-to-date) the people waiting). Similarly, at the time of the distribution of equipment, which were still wet, a small impression of cattle especially if you have the misfortune to ask a bigger jacket because distributed is too small. So very disappointed on this point. End of season fatigue?

  • We were lucky because it was the last release of the company. Really great because our pilot Nicolas looks really to know and love the whales and more it allowed us to go to the closest of these respecting them. A day that will remain engraved in my memory. We saw common Rorcal, humpback and the beluga whale. Thousand thanks

  • Great experience.
  • We saw whales and the guide was very nice. On the other hand, we we to charge $ 4 extra each, it has repaid later in the week at least, but we were told that it was less expensive to book on the internet and that it was written on the site, but that's not true. I spent hours looking for the best possible experience of whales. So do your booking online if you don't want any surprises. More so, when I called later to say that my charge price seemed to be too expensive, $ 68, I was told it was normal price including taxes, which wasn't too. The real price was $ 64 and this is what I finally paid after my refund of $ 4 but book online would have been less expensive if it was truly written on their site. I was therefore lied twice... Too bad because the cruise was very pleasant, but the customer service made sure I won't go back.

  • I loved this trip of the month of July. The price may seem expensive, but one way that staff are passionate and do their best to find whales. A beautiful team work. The crew is composed of a guide and a very competent captain. Boats are zodiacs that can accommodate 30 to 50 people and we love because it is much more adventurous than a big boats. Dress code: pants and big sweater to go, more crew members lend us a winter coat because it's very cold on the river and receives the water in places. NB: We saw whales.

  • Service very average - nice little home - boat crowded and poorly organized (children and small templates themselves in the Middle while with larger jigs of adults are on the edge). Little whale (it's a risk), but especially little empathy... Lack of luck this time, or is it systematic?

  • Last year we went to do a tour with the skimmer to the Escoumins and it was magical! A passionate captain, the real hardware (coat with vest embedded rescue and not to be wet pants) short was the best! We went back this year and after reading the reviews on Google it it says it would be good to change, unfortunately it was a mistake! For a slightly higher fee ($ 51 to $ 49 last year). Short and without a lifejacket coats (certainly it is in hidden in the boat but if the boat turns or is the utility?, of course not on pants either, tell me that these are only details!) It is worgen even of comfort and security. A nice guide but nothing to do with the captain that he was passionate in short we do not advise! See whales, belugas, seals etc it must be a magical moment considering the price ask (and given the competition he's all there details count) to the wise!
