Once you’ve boarded your cruise vessel, set sail on the smooth waters of the Baie-Saint-Catherine. During your 3-hour cruise you’ll enjoy narration by a professional guide and will also have the chance to explore the ship’s decks for different views of the Baie-Saint-Catherine and the breathtaking scenery that surrounds it.
The Grand Fleuve
A comfortable and secure boat with naturalist guides passionate about the Baie-Saint-Catherine and marine mammals, the Grand Fleuve is the best observation boat in Canada boasting glassed-in-panoramic decks, terraces and an observation platform for the best views of the world’s most fascinating creatures, the whales.
Admire a huge variety of large marine mammals from one of the cruise ship’s observation decks as they feed nearby. Baie-Saint-Catherine is known for its estimated 1,000 beluga whales, an endangered species easy to distinguish due to its white color. In addition to the beluga whales, it is possible you’ll spot minke, fin, humpback, sperm and blue whales during your whale watching cruise.
Other Majestic Creatures
While whales might be the highlight of the cruise, that’s not to say there isn’t other unique wildlife about. Dolphins, harbor seals and porpoises can be seen in the waters and many species of birds including cormorants, gulls and geese are often seen overhead.
