WILDTHENTIC TRAVELERS TESTIMONIALS
"It was so great we went twiceAwesome trip! The guides went the extra mile to ensure everyone had a great time and saw the whales that were active in the area. Also Bob the harbour seal, put on a special show for us by popping up near the kayaks. The first day, the tour was cut short due to thunderstorms. We were fortunate to be able to rebook for later in the week. Kristof, our guide that day, was great, knowledgeable and entertaining. We had a spectacular time and were only sad to have it cut short. The second trip had better weather. The guide, Felix, was also entertaining and knowledgeable. His challenge was greater because we had already enjoyed Kristof's tour. His stories regarding the marine life in the area, the history of the Belugas was wonderful. Kayaking in the St. Lawrence is glorious. To see whales and harbour seals is special. To be out there in the sunset is spectacular. Thank you for an incredible experience, both times."
