Whale watching tour was to leave from Les Escoumins rather than in Tadoussac where we were staying - we decided not to go as it meant driving the same road ( about 30 minutes each way) 2 extra times
worth the time to see up close
Be sure to ask for help if you do not speak French as it seems to be assumed that you speak French unless noted. The guides spent time making sure we heard all the information once we asked. This is not the best trip for small children as most of them on the boat cried much of the time.
Our guides had more respect for the whales than some other organisations - as we saw how other boats went much closer to the whales than probably was good for them. In the boot we were als the last in the row to board, which ment we had to sit in the middle - so we couldn’t see always as much as the other people at some moments. But still we got to see enough whales (and a nice tail!) to be very impressed!
