Quebec: Whale Watching

The crown jewel of French Canada

Quebec Whale Watching

Each summer whales return to the Estuary and the Gulf of St. Lawrence in Quebec. With observation sites just a few hours from Québec City, and an impressive variety of whale species, it’s not surprising that the St. Lawrence and Gaspe' is recognized as one of the best places in the world to observe minke whale, fin whale, blue whale, humpback whale, and harbour porpoise. Visitors looking to whale watch in Quebec can book ½ day trips or full day trips aboard a catamaran. Lunch is usually provided and night lodging can be arranged.
