Whales

Jump to last reply

Were planning a trip,, don't know where to go though... my husband and I, and our son will be turning 3 the end of the summer. We are looking at the end of Sept or the first of October. A 3 night vacation... flying out from Toronto... to Nova Scotia, Quebec? BC?? somewhere to see whales... thats our main thing... and to keep this a cheap as possible......
where would be the best spot in Canada at that time of year to see whales?
and can someone give me and idea of what accomodation would be like and the cost per night?
also....
when whale watching.... how close do you actually get to them,, close enough to take pictures or is this something you need binoculars to see....i've always thought you'd be up close but perhaps i'm wrong... and lastly is it dangerous?
I grew up during summers out in Glace Bay NS and i've been everywhere, but whenever we would go to see the whales... the weather would be to bad, so we couldn't go out. So.... i still want to see the whales.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Mary
