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 covered in their spectacular foliage give way to historic trading post towns, lively Francophone cities and ultimately the cool blues of the river itself.
On September 3rd, join us as we depart for the picturesque St. Lawrence and the luxurious Fairmont Manior Richelieu. 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 landmark Loew’s Concord hotel. While in Quebec City you will have enough time to explore many of the wonders of this magnificent city including its quaint shops and cafes.
Your four-day excursion up the St. Lawrence is fully-escorted from Ottawa by an experienced Travac Tours host and includes two lunches, one dinner, one night in Quebec City and two at the Fairmont Manoir Richelieu as well as a memorable two-and-a-half hour whale watching cruise from Tadoussac. Affordably priced at only $679 per person (based on double occupancy plus 13% HST), our tour will give you the best value of any package of its kind. For booking information, contact Travac Tours at (613) 728-1934 or visit us at the Westgate Shopping Centre.

At 9:30am we will depart the hotel for an expected arrival in Tadoussac in time for lunch (included). At 1:00pm you will make your way to the pier for your 3 hour whale watching experience.
