Best seats in the house! Watching belugas from land in Quebec


Thank you Oliver Dirr for this great guest blog.
I hope and wish that more places in the World will make watching these magnificent cetaceans from land possible. The more distance between the cetaceans and humans the better in my opinion.


My husband and I spent time in Tadoussec two years ago, while we did go on boat trips we also saw whales from the shore. Beautiful place watching beautiful creatures.

I will never be able to get to whale watch now. Too old & too far away so live the events through blogs like this. Keep enjoying the wonderful whales for those of us that can only dream!

Have just come back from a trip to Tadoussac and agree with you. While it was wonderful to see humpbacks and fin whales from boat trips, we were left feeling the trips were very much a commercial enterprise and not much else! We saw lots of whales from sitting on rocks too and had wonderful views of Minke whales and Belugas from Tadoussac and Le Cap de Bon Desir. A wonderful area with so much wildlife.
