Booked the three hour zodiac whale watching trip. We were staying in Quebec City and chose to leave from Baie- Sainte- Catherine rather than Toudassac after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. The ferry and area around Toudassac sounded great but it would have taken about 45 minutes longer. We were worried about the time and drive since we were unfamiliar with the area. We rented a car rather than take the bus tour. Glad we did so we were free to do what we wanted both ways. You will have to pay to park when you reach the dock. It was an easy drive and easy to find. It took three hours to get there and was well worth the trip. The company provides waterproof outerwear but it was a calm day and we did not get wet. You will need long sleeves and a sweater underneath. It is cool on the water. There is a bathroom on the dock but the Zodiac is not a vessel with facilities. There is a souvenir shop with some snack food so don't plan on having a meal. Take something waterproof if you take a camera. We saw seals, Minke, Humpback and Baluga Whales. We did not get close enough for any good pictures. The guide's English was limited so we did not understand most of what he had to say. He was able to point out the different types and location. We had a great time and would highly recommend it. Personally I would not waste the time on a big boat unless you just want to cruise on the St. Lawrence. The Zodiac is fun and gets as close as possible to the whales. Good price for the experience. If you are staying in Quebec City, book the 10:00 even though you will have to leave around 6:00 AM. This gives you plenty of time to get there and you have plenty of time to see other attractions on the way back to Quebec City.
