Route des baleines

6:00 greyhound bus lines to Sept Iles. Hard to imagine that i was actually on the way to accomplish this dream.

The preamble was a full of wonderful landscapes around Saint Lawrence river. The way 362 and the Charlevoix area. On the road the Montmorency falls or the Saint Anne Basilica make the journey even more impressive. Before arrive at Tadoussac, you must take the ferry-crossing at Bay Saint Catherine, just like destination would be to be desired a little more. And you have the first date with the Saguenay river.

And here we are, Tadoussac, Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park, colored houses, beautiful gardens, magical place.

The area is the first place for observation of whales because the cold, fresh water from the Saguenay and the warmer, salty water of the St. Lawrence, meet to create a rich marine environment. That makes an abundance of krill, and the bay is deep enough for cetaceans.

Next day, at sunrise,we were ready for the experience. A better weather with a blue sky and a no waves,all was quiet and peacefull.

Words are not enough to describe, it’s a must-live experience. Thanks Paul the captain of our zodiaque ( otis excursions ) four your enthusiasm and unforgeteable moment.
