We took the three-hour 9 am Zodiac tour and were not disappointed. The Zodiac makes the experience more intimate and direct and adds a sense of adventure - especially for our teenage kids. Every seat is outward facing which means everybody has an unobstructed view. Every passenger gets a waterproof outfit consisting of rainpants and full sized life jacket, which in the end helped more to stay warm as there was no significant watersplashing. We were lucky with the weather (sunny and calm) and even more with the whales of which we saw many. One blue- fin even passed under our boat and surfaced right behind us. By the way - do not expect National Geographic type sightings of majestic tail fins slowly entering the sea. Most whale views consist of a back fin or slight bump above the water at some distance, and all viewings are very brief. Next to whales, there were large groups of seals. Captain Sylvain was very experienced and gave adequate explanation. He was clearly pleased that all passengers understood French. He gave us the feeling that we had been exceptionally fortunate with the number of whales we had seen.
