Come and discover one of Québec’s hidden treasures with Croisières Baie de Gaspé: the great whales in Forillon National Park.
Enjoy an unforgettable whale-watching cruise aboard the Narval III. A bilingual interpreter guide will accompany you during this excursion of approximately 2h30 to tell you more about the various species of whales you will encounter. As many as six different species can be observed in the park, including blue, fin, humpback and minke whales.
Forillon is the best place in Québec to observe the great whales.
Our cruises offer just the right combination of adventure and pristine natural environment coupled with guaranteed personal comfort and safety. They are also fairly exclusive since, unlike other whale-watching areas, Forillon offers you the opportunity to get close to the whales without being surrounded by lots of other boats.
In addition to seeing several species of whales, you can also admire the spectacular scenery of Forillon and Cap Gaspé, including the sheer cliffs at the tip of the peninsula.
The Narval III has a capacity of 47 seated passengers. An aluminum vessel designed and built using state-of-the-art technology, this sightseeing boat is skippered by a skilled and qualified captain.
