"Look at port side! A whale!" says the captain.
The whale approaches your boat, taking a deep breath before diving
back into the St. Lawrence, leaving you awestruck. This dream is
within reach in Grandes-Bergeronnes, located 15 minutes away by
car from Tadoussac, a renowned whale-watching destination. The
expert staff at Croisières Essipit welcomes you with open arms for a unique experience
in the company of some of the biggest animals on the planet –
whales. Combine the sea-salt breeze, the sound of the waves
hitting the sides of the Zodiac as it speeds across the water, and
one of the best places on Earth to watch these incredible
creatures, and you’ve got everything you need for a magical day!
Each summer, humpback whales, blue whales, fin
whales, beluga whales and other marine mammals get together in the
fresh, rich waters of the river. The dynamic team at Croisières
Essipit is thrilled to be a part of your meeting with the whales!
Equipment rentals (for safety vests, isothermal clothing, etc.)
are included in the price of your cruise. Croisières Essipit
partners with the Eco-Whale Alliance so that it can offer
eco-friendly expeditions. If you’d like to spend more time in the
region, the very welcoming Essipit Innu community has campsites,
chalets and condo-hotels
for rent in Les Escoumins.
Climb on board Croisières Essipit's latest
possession: a magnificent Zodiac big enough for 36 passengers.
Take a seat on the bench or one of the single seats and listen to
the guides, who are truly passionate about the sea. Whether you’re
visiting during busy season or low season, you’ll find great deals
as well as departures at various times of the day to accommodate
your schedule. Croisières Essipit also has 5 other Zodiacs that
seat 12 passengers. A cruise on a Zodiac is different from a
conventional cruise because it's personalized and
provides an adrenalin-pumping experience. It also lets you see the
whales up close, right on the surface of the water.
This summer, head to the rocky shores of
Grandes-Bergeronnes for an unforgettable whale-watching cruise.
