Best time to watch whales

by keithmanser Online Now Apr 23, 2007 at 7:51 PM

I was wondering if anyone had any idea which months provide the best whale watching in the Tadoussac area. I want to kayak in the fiord for a few days but it is a long drive to be there at the wrong time. Thanks for your help

    You can sync your schedule to any date during summer up to October. There are plenty of whales to watch. The reason they are at this location has to do with the Saguenay river which bring them food. So no worry about seeing whales.

    To have the best experience, you MUST take the trip on a Zodiac inflatable raft (about 12 person on board). See, the boats cannot approach the whales, all they can do is be in there paths. So the Captains place there big boats where they think the whales are going. Moving from one point to another when the Captain sees the whales going that way is best achieve with these small boats. You will see them from very VERY close. Bring you camera.

    They supply you with the waterproof clothes. Enjoy :)
