Whale watching on a river?
Living on the west coast, I have a tendency to think that we are the place in the world to see whales. So imagine my surprise the first time I went whale watching in a river!
The St. Lawrence River is home to blue, finback, minke and beluga whales. Now through mid-October is a great time to go whale watching.
There are numerous companies offering deluxe whale watching tours, or just go on your own with a local company. A good starting point is Quebec City, a hoppin' place this summer with its year-long celebration of turning 400 years old.
She still looks great!
