Friendly, efficient and very honest: it was extremely windy that day and they said we would get soaked with near-freezing water, and we did. Captain did great job trying to avoid the biggest waves, guide was very pleasant translated everything into English, even though only two English speakers on board. Cruise included a trip part way up fjord, since conditions made it hard to see many whales out in the St Lawrence. We saw a harbour seal and some belugas. I think we were too close to the belugas though, hope we did not disturb them: it is the breeding season and they are in decline.
So. The whale watching area was fantastic. I booked a trip tho as a grad thing for my son. The guide - tho I had booked an English excursion- barely spoke English and needed to be asked about things A LOT. Also AML TOURS ARE RIDICULOUS SUITS AND ARE NOT ARE NOT WATER PROOF AND MERELY CONSTRUCTION JACKETS/PANTS. Soaking wet and froze our butts off. Recommend another company with conscientious guides and if you book the language you speak in, at least equal for the money. I HAD TO KEEP PROMPTING THD WONAN TO DESCRIBE IN ENGLISH POR FAVOR!!!
The experience was exhilarating, travelled in sept 2020, along with my husband. We got to see four different species of whales. Humpback, fin (in a distance), Winkie and belugas along with their babies. The tour guide was very good And informative she answered all questions with detailed explanations. My husband and I enjoyed every minute of the tour and definitely recommend it.
Such an adventure! The sea was a bit ruff when we started, so we were soaking wet by the end. Definitely recommend taking some water proof clothing with you and if you get seasick, some pills too. Anyway, we saw so many whales and their babies, recommend this to everyone :)
Everything is well organized. All the employees are very nice and seem to know what they are doing. The zodiac was clean and well maintained. Views are are breathtaking! We were lucky to see many whales, including pretty close to the boat, amazing!!
