Whale watching on a river?

Whale Watching - St. Lawrence River, Quebec

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!
