What people are saying about Tadoussac
Our guide was funny and accommodating. We signed up for the big boat tour but were accidentally listed on the zodiac boat. He fixed the problem for us easily. The drive to the boat and back was beautiful, and the cheese factory is worth seeing on its own merit. We saw many whales, although not belugas, and the scenery was lovely. One thing to keep in mind-- they pick up everyone from their hotels, which was a plus for us, but that means you might have a long wait in the morning. We were told to be ready at 8:00 and weren't picked up until after 8:30.
It was beautiful watching the whale and her baby passing us on both sides of the ship very close-- and then later the beluga --popping up all over the place even the seal looked exciting when moving slowly along the river, The Saguenay Fjord is impressive. I recommend the trip to everyone..The lady announcing the tour was excellent and very good information-- the right voice in both languages..
Cruise staff were friendly and efficient. Unfortunately the weather was wet and cold thus did not spend much time on top deck. Most time was spent on lower 2 decks or inside, thus it was hard to hear the guide over the speakers. Nonetheless, the cruise was enjoyable and we say 6 whales, albiet briefly !
Had such a lovely day on the boat. Amazing guide who was able to flick between French and English so we always knew what was happening. Saw 3 types of whales, some seals and the weather was fab (although slightly cold in the wind - bring a jacket!!) So glad we chose this experience!
Alain our guide was very knowledgeable and very entertaining. We were sooo lucky as we saw 5 Wales in our zodiac trip - Do take the zodiac but be prepared to get very wet and take some cloth to change after the 2.5 hours ride . It’s great fun.
