A magical moment. We were lucky because we were able to see 6 types of marine mammals during our excursion, from afar to belugas and fin whales. And up close (or very close) to minke whales, harbor porpoises, gray seals, and humpback whales. In short, at the top. Small downside about Guetyourguide, the meeting place was not the right one, we almost missed boarding. Fortunately the Quebecers are flexible and helped us.

It was awesome ! They know the areas where cetaceans go to eat so there is a good chance of seeing them. Personally we were lucky enough to see everything we hoped for! And it's great to see so many whales blowing in the distance

I had the chance to see whales (I went there at the end of October). It was quite impressive although obviously we stayed away from the latter. I don't regret this expense.

very good trip and the boat guide was great. happy i decided to do it. also they contacted me to book the right day to make sure i see the whales

Everything was perfect ; very interesting guide on the zodiac
