Activity description

Departing from Baie-Sainte-Catherine, Croisières AML invites you to come aboard one of its boats for a cruise that will allow you to meet the world's largest mammals!

Quebec has a lot to offer, but the must-do activity is to come and meet the whales. They travel thousands of kilometres to feed in the gigantic natural larder of the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park, one of the most beautiful whale-watching sites in the world.

In the heart of a unique environment, your naturalist-guide will take you aboard his boat specially designed for whale watching, to meet the whales in compliance with the regulations of the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park. To finish this cruise, you will make a foray into the majestic Saguenay Fjord to take in the sights.

The most common whale species you will see from the boat are the beluga, fin whale, minke whale, blue whale, humpback whale, harbour porpoise, and also the grey seal.

This is a fantastic experience for wildlife and photography enthusiasts, so don't hesitate, and go whale watching from a boat in Baie-Sainte-Catherine!

We were lucky to see majestic humpback, minke and beluga whales. The Saguaney fjord tour afterwards was scenic.
