I chose to go on the big boat using the coach day trip from Quebec City. I took a minibus shuttle from a local hotel to the Quebec City centre than on to a coach. The ride is 4 hours north with one stop each way at a small farm shop (toilets, small kiosk for snack food and drink). The... More

We hopped on the tour from Quebec City on August16 with Yves as our wonderful bus driver. We chose the raft as we heard you would be closer to the whales - but had no idea how close we would really come! We boarded the Sentinelle IV, excited to be on one of the smaller rafts. We took off and... More

Went on a cruise Saturday night August 20th which included the buffet meal and fireworks. The buffet was very disappointing. Had to pay extra for water bottles (Eska for 3.75 each!) and wine etc which we paid 115$ plus tax to begin with, these things should be included! The cruise itself was just ok but everything is just long. Couldn't... More

Boarded on time. Views were good. Large boat. Entertainment and music was great. Food was disappointing. Main course we chose chicken. It was served with very plan mashed potatoes, 2 very thin asparagus, 2pinches of carrot and brown gravy on the plate and the chicken on top. Brown plan gravy very not right.

We had never seen the Grand Feux Loto-Quebec, a fireworks show that happens during the summertime in Quebec City, so we decided to try it by boat. Amazing!! The food was fantastic and the service was warm and wonderful. We could have remained in the dining room, but we decided to explore and were delighted to come upon one big,... More

At the start of my trip, I was sitting on a chair, near a large blue circle painted on the deck ( I suppose it was intended to look a bit like a pool on deck). The company has not used non-slip deck paint. It started to rain, so I stood up to go inside, stepped onto the the blue... More

Great tour and pickup and drop off at your hotel! Though the total time between pick up and drop off was approximately 12 hours, the trip was very informative. Yves, our bus driver (who bears a striking resemblance to Richard Schiff, pointed out the interesting sites on route to the boat (3 hours from Quebec City) through one of the... More

The price for the tour was fair and the 1.5 hour tour was enjoyable. The tour was narrated in both French and English, by a costumed historic figure and the sound quality was fair. The views from the ship offered some great picture taking opportunities.

Great tour. The host is perfectly bilingual and adds to the boat tour viewing by providing an informative experience as well. He was very knowledgeable and personable. Thank you for a lovely afternoon photo-op day !!!
