This was a great program. Grandchildren and grandparents alike enjoyed watching and learning about whales and the ecology of Tadoussac. Benny and Sebastion, the leaders, were knowledgeable and helpful. Everyone enjoyed being together, children and grandparents alike. Kay

This was a fabulous program. The kids had a great time together and so did the grandparents! There were some glitches in communication during the enrollment process but once we were all on the program with the leaders everything was great

We all 3 felt this was an excellent program. Benny and Jackie were terrific guides. They were both extremely helpful. Program organization was fantastic. Tadoussac is a very charming area to visit. Beautiful scenery, excellent restaurants, and don't forget the whales! We highly recommend this trip to others.

Our granddaughter chose this as her first adventure to a "foreign" country and we all had a great time. Benny is a wonderful guide and a Tadoussac treasure. The schedule was well organized--activities flowed and the kids enjoyed whale watching (minke, blue, fin, beluga), rolling down sand dunes, handling marine life, swimming and doing activities with their warm & patient assistant, Jackie. We enjoyed eating local specialities at many area restaurants and learned so much about the mighty St. Lawrence River, the Saguenay Fjord, the estuary and the whales who live there.

This program was fantastic! We grandparents as well as our granddaughter increased our knowledge of whales and their habits. We also learned about the area around delightful, Tadoussac. Our leader, Benny, was so knowledgeable and helpful. Jackie, the children's leader, was delightful. We would highly recommend this trip!!!
