Board the Narval III (47 passengers) or the Rocher Le Vieux (12 passengers)   at the scenic Grande-Grave site (South Area) for a whale-watching adventure that will help make your visit to Forillon National Park  a memorable one!

The exhilarating anticipation as you try to spot the huge back or tail of a breaching whale, the excitement of hearing their explosive blow or the privilege of watching acrobatic dolphins as they frolic in the waves may all be part of the experience.

This cruise offers you just the right combination of adventure and untamed nature coupled with guaranteed personal comfort and safety.

Prepare for an exclusive experience as, unlike other whale-watching areas, Forillon offers true intimacy with the whales without the hassle of other boats….it’s you and the whales!

Accompanied by a interpreter-guide and a captain (Narval 111)  or a captain-guide (Rocher Le Vieux) you will have the opportunity to discover the fascinating lives of these gentle giants of the sea.

Throughout the season, depending on the food available, as many as six (6) different species can be seen in the waters of Gaspé Bay and the Gulf of St. Lawrence such as the Blue (The largest whale in the world), and the spectacular Humpback whale.

Forillon is the best site in the province of Quebec to observe the big whales.
