On the south bank of the Saguenay River at Baie-Ste-Catherine, Québec.
Trip date is July 2010.
Ferries crossing the Saguenay River from Baie-Ste-Catherine and Tadoussac.
The free ferry ride provided by the Quebec provincial government runs every 15 minutes or so during peak summer time.
We are now boarding the ferry to cross the Saguenay River to Tadoussac.
No traffic restrictions on this ferry. Everyone on-board!
We just started the short trip. At the background is the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord.
About to dock on the Tadoussac side of Saguenay River.

Now on board the whale watch ship. Just leaving the harbour.

Whale sightings are more like this . . . very rarely they will jump out of the water for your camera!
Here is a whale that is approaching the left side of the ship.
The whale getting closer and blowing. Everyone trying to take a good shot of the whale.
There it is!
A sister ship.
On our way back to Tadoussac pier, we saw this pair of beluga (white) whales.
Before returning to pier, we were taken a few minutes into the Saguenay Fjord.
Back to Tadoussac.
Later in the day, we are back to where we are staying at L-Anse-Saint-John, Québec.
