It was very nice few hours trip. The boat was pretty small, which was good as you can see all around you without moving from one place to another. We saw few kind of whales, playful dolphins. Guide was very nice and listening to her was very easy and interesting

After trying another organization in Riviere-du-Loup which was a severe disappointment, I booked Croisieres aux Baleines in Gaspé with a tremendously rewarding result. Not only did we have multiple sightings of whales but our bilingual guide, Stacey, gave excellent interpretation of the local marine world very patiently handling numerous questions from left and right in two languages.

Second, this is a great area to do whale watching as their are multiple species near shore. however, perhaps because... More

First of all, this is a clarification that it is a whale watch tour inside the park ( I do not know why some people are writing how beautiful the national park is). Those comments should be placed under Parc Forillon, and thus more people aware of this wonderful place in Quebec. Otherwise, "Gaspe peninsula" could be the hidden tourist... More

Thank you for posting your review, we appreciate comments from our custumors. The territory arround Forillon National park that we can cover in a 2 1/2 hour cruise is excellent to see whales. Species like the blue whale, the humpback whale, the fin back whale, the minke whale, the harbour porpoise and the white sided dolphin can be seen during... More
