As part of its association with the
Eco-Whale Alliance, Croisières Essipit has adjusted its practices
to better respect marine mammals and their environment. The
company offers two-hour zodiac expeditions into the Saguenay-St.
Lawrence Marine Park. Large enough for either 12 or 36 passengers,
this safe boat offers participants a more personal experience than
they would get on board a large cruise ship, as well as a closer
point of view, right on the surface of the water. Zodiacs depart
from the Bergeronnes quay, an ideal spot that takes passengers to
many great places from which to watch whales in the marine park.
Sightings of belugas, minke whales and
fin whales are frequent on zodiac expeditions, and you might even
be lucky enough to spot humpback whales and blue whales.
Passengers learn more about these fascinating creatures thanks to
the facts provided by their experienced captain. Have your camera
ready to snap an amazing picture! There are also beautiful marine
birds to photograph out on the water.
Make the most of your time on the
magnificent Innu Essipit ancestral territory, and stay over a few
nights! At Vacances Essipit, you’ll find comfortable condo-hotels,
fully equipped cottages, outfitters and campsites where you can
fall asleep to the sound of lapping waves. Located just a short
drive from Tadoussac, this place is perfect for an energizing
vacation filled with outdoor activities like hiking, swimming, sea
kayaking, hunting, fishing, black bear-watching and
