Whale watching is an extremely popular activity in Quebec. The Manicouagan region is one of the best places in the world to observe marine mammals and the Route des Baleines (Whale Route) is an absolute must if you want to have front row seats for the show. In all, 13 species of whales feed in the St. Lawrence River, including the blue whale, the largest animal on the planet, the fin and the minke whales and the spectacular humpback whale. There are ocean excursions aboard watercraft of all sizes available to those who would like to observe these mammals. And in some places, the river along the shore is so deep that you can watch whales even without leaving land. For those who love marine life, you can satisfy your curiosity by consulting the Whales on-line website, perfect for learning more about the giants of the Saint Lawrence River.
