I’m going to be mammal watching/birding around the St Lawrence River, Quebec in August, for three weeks. Has anyone got any good tips?
I know Tadoussac is the main spot but I’ve just read a trip report where their best blue whale sighting was from Ste Anne de Portneuf. Not sure if this was just luck, or whether it’s a better spot for this species. Any recommendations for the best companies to use or any other general thoughts would be much appreciated.
Also, last time I went whale watching I was with my family and, as my daughter was only 18 months old, Zodiacs weren’t an option. She’ll be eight this time. I’m presuming they’re better, but photography is a high priority and I’m bit concerned about whether I’ll be too busy wiping salt spray off my precious lens to get good photos. Any advice on this would also be welcome.
