"Whale Watching Zodiacs: Not for the Feint of Body!" Top 5 Page for this destination Province of Quebec Warnings Or Dangers Tip by AKtravelers

  A zodiac searches the St. Lawrence for whales
by AKtravelers

While we enjoy taking the zodiacs on our whale-watching trips, we realize that they are not for everyone. First, they zip across the St. Lawrence at a high rate of speed, sometimes severely jarring your bodies when the water is choppy. If you have a bad back, I'm almost sure you would be injured on all but the calmest days. Furthermore, you are bound to get wet from the salty splashes of the waves. Which means you'll be cold -- even with the gear they give you -- if you don't dress warm underneath.
Finally, I met one man who came up with another reason to take the cruise ship rathr than the zodiac -- no bathroom. He didn't think he could hold it for three hours. So, pee before you get on board!
