Why choose Croisières Baie de Gaspé ?

We are a team of passionate professionals at your service for more than 25 years.

As a concessionaire, Croisières Baie de Gaspé is the only company authorized to operate a whale watching service in Forillon National Park. In a unique, almost exclusive way, Forillon allows you a real intimacy with the whales without having to suffer the traffic of many other boats.

Grande-Grave, the departure point of our cruises is a strategic location for whale watching. Of all the excursion companies in Quebec, we are the closest to the areas regularly frequented by these large marine mammals. In general, we don't have to cover a great distance to spot whales. This proximity allows customers a longer observation time.

Following an agreement with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, we can go whale watching in the Bancs-des-Américains Marine Protected Area.

Our experienced masters have higher certificates than the standards required by Transport Canada.

Interpretation on board the vessel is provided by professional interpreter guides and our interpretive scenario is approved by Parks Canada.

Every morning, a staff member of Croisières Baie de Gaspé spots whales from the coast with approach glasses. This spotting often makes all the difference because it gives us a good idea of the distribution of whales in the Forillon sector.
