Tadoussac and Quebec City

Epic Whale Watching Adventure

The maritime regions of Québec are home to some of the best whale-watching sites in the world. Every year, as many as 200,000 people visit Tadoussac for whale watching. Between May and October, you can find blue whales, the largest animals on the planet, impressive humpbacks, belugas and about 10 other cetaceans. 

The Village of Tadoussac became the first fur-trading post in European North America in 1600, eight years before the founding of Québec City. The word "tatouskak" means breast, and refers to the two, rounded hills by the Saguenay fjord and the bay.


Explore Quebec City! This beautiful must-see destination is the heart of French Canada. For a long time a fortified town, the walls that surrounded it still stand the passing of time, encircling the old city's charming streets. Walk through the beautiful wall gates and enter this magical town.
