an amazing excursion that goes to the deepest waters of the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park. By traveling in a Zodiac inflatable boat, you get as close as possible to the surface of the St. Lawrence River, giving a unique sense of being right up next to the whales. This larger-than-life feeling is enhanced by the comments of our experienced captains, who share their knowledge as well as Essipit Innu beliefs about whales and the marine world they live in.
All Essipit’s whale watching cruises are led by a certified, reliable and trustworthy captain in very safe boats. Each captain knows the secrets and vagaries of the St. Lawrence River, and is trained in how to best keep his passengers safe.
For our elders, whales symbolize foresight, and even today they are central to marine animal life for the Essipit Innu. In the interests of preserving and respecting this noble animal, the Essipit Innu community offers whale watching Zodiac boat tours on the majestic St. Lawrence River to tourists from all over the world.
Essipit Cruises has partnered with the Eco-Wale Alliance to ensure that its whale watching activities are carried out with proper respect for the marine mammals in the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park.
