Good sized boat & not overly crowded. The hostess was very informative and obviously loved what she did. Information was shared in French & English. We were fortunate to see a school of dolphins and a whale and her calf. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

One of the best trips ever, the whales were jumping out of the water. I'll repeat the trip! Parking for free and nice weather. This time of the year there is not a lot of people which makes the trip even better, 100% recommended!

Hello, No problem for kids to come on our boat. The best time for whales in Forillon is from beginning of June to mid October. The best conditions are the morning and the end of the afternoon because generally less windy.
