Whale watching expedition

Femre 5 Étoiles highly recommends going on a whale watching expedition in either Tadoussac or Les Bergeronnes during your vacation.

The majestic Saint Lawrence seaway is very big and you will be surrounded by its size and its silence, then, all of sudden, and unexpectedly at a distance, you will hear a sound coming from the blowhole of a whale. Then all eyes, both young and old, are set on this mysterious and fascinating creature: the whale.

13 types of whales can be seen in the St-Lawrence seaway. The most commonly seen whales are the Minke whales (10 meters long, weighing 10 tons), Fin whales (18 meters long, weighing 40 tons), porpoises, immaculately white Beluga whales, Humpbakc whales (often see their tail when diving).

Finally, last, but certainly not the least, the famous Blue whale, which is the largest water mammal in the world. It is between 20 and 30 meters long, and you will undoubtedly be very impressed when seeing this whale.
