Quebec City & Whale Watching

A late summer trip along the majestic St. Lawrence River is an experience that leaves a lasting impression on visitors.Sweeping hills give way to historic trading post towns, lively Francophone cities and ultimately the cool blues of the river itself.

Join us as we depart for the picturesque village of Riviere-du-Loup. From here you will depart on a breathtaking whale watching cruise on which you are bound to see an abundance of marine life. Then it will be off to Quebec City. Here you will overnight at the Hotel Plaza Quebec.
