  • Very well overall. The visit to about 2 hours. The ability to ask questions of Michel, a passionate researcher is really a plus.

  • Do before the cruise, this allows to discover the different whales in the St. Lawrence River before you see them in "real life"

  • We started our tour of Tadousac by a visit of the ICMM, we talked to a young biologist of the Center which was really passionate about this world, and it was very interesting. These explanations really helped us during our zodiac release the next day. A big thank you. And is it possible to give me the name of the humpback whale see photos in the annex
