Did a lot of those but this one is quite fantastic . Surroundings are majestics. You'll se a lot of whales from the commons to the big blue ones . A bit expensive but it's worth the price.

Great day on the water! Friendly bilingual staff, comfortable boat and tai gear provided. We had luck and saw several huge humpback whales (even saw their giant tails) plus minke whales, grey seals. Stunning views of Land's end and the park from the water as well.

Our family of 5 went on this tour in July 2016 (children were 15, 13 and 10). At first, there was a heavy fog with very poor visibility. The captain stopped approx 1 km off shore and with engine off...blows could be heard all around us. Within minutes the visibility allowed us to see over 6 Humpback whales around us.... More

We know this wasn't a Marine Land attraction and that we might or might not see any whales...DID WE LUCK OUT! The guides and boat captain were so skillful at sighting anything that might be in the water and getting us quickly into that area. The whales frequently came up to breath and a couple of "youngsters" repeatedly jumped up... More

Very much worth the price. My boys aged 10 and 8 were really captivated by this tour. The guides are perfectly bilingual English and french, they are knowledgeable, patient and kind. All of the staff was very helpful. The fog set in minutes before our cruise was set to depart but still we ended up having a blast and with... More

We reserved our cruise 2 days ahead and were not sorry because we had a full boat of tourists. We were lucky enough to have a calm sea and were able to spot the whale's blows from a great distance. The boat captain was a master at finding, pursuing and following the whales.

We did the cruise excursion which took us to the Parc de Forillon in a yellow school bus, we had a informative guide telling us all about the area and the things we passed. The boat trip on the Zodiac was great, we only saw 2 whales but the sceanary was lovely, we saw sea birds and loads of gannets... More

I went on this tour with my 10-year-old son. We had a blast ! We saw a few whales and seals and the scenery was Majestic. It was also a little thrilling and got me out of my comfort zone. Maybe one day we will do it again ! The captain and the guide were very professional and put us... 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
