Memories to last a lifetime!

This company has zodiacs that sit about 40 people. We were lucky as there was only about 3/4 of the boat that was reserved and it made it a bit frustrating at times to try to see... read more

This company has zodiacs that sit about 40 people. We were lucky as there was only about 3/4 of the boat that was reserved and it made it a bit frustrating at times to try to see the whales on the other side of the boat but we were so lucky in our sightings that, in the end, it did... More

We saw a lot of whales! we followed a family for a couple of hours and saw some more. The guide was very knowledgable about all kinds of species of whales! very interesting and touching activity! I definitely recommend this!

We set out on a cold, foggy and rainy afternoon. Our chances to see whales seemed small but we spotted a couple and had a nice time. The guide was helpful and knowledgeable and seemed to anticipate our every need. A very enjoyable experience. Many thanks.

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. We went out... More

We have gone whale-watching in Hawaii so weren't expecting the same kind of experience in Gaspe. As well, our cruise ship did not have this on their excursion list so the coordination to make this happen was extensive. Jean Roy was our point of contact via email and did a very good job to ensure the logistics were in place.... More

there are two things to note up front. first, these are the only guys in town. so if you want to go whale watching, they are your only choice in the park. the only other option is down in perce. 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
