Enjoy a fascinating sea excursion with Essipit Cruises! Glide just above the water surface in a Zodiac to the deepest parts of the river where food is plentiful and you can observe the majestic whales of the St. Lawrence as they surface to catch their breath. Encounter whales in complete safety and comfort in one of our 12 or 36-passenger Zodiacs piloted by an experienced naturalist captain.
