After reading about some noise concerns in Tadoussac, we opted to stay for one night in a more natural setting at Natakam, which ended up being one of the best decisions we made for our entire trip. The condo had all the supplies that our family of 4 needed and an amazing view of marine mammals at play in the... More

On a two week tour of Quebec and Eastern Canada, we had booked one night in Condo Le Natakam. What a fantastic organization they are. Our reservation was ready, when we checked in, not only for the accommodations but for the whale watching expedition the next day. (IF you are planning on whale watching in this area, choose THIS group,... More

Normally I'm very cautious in writing excellent reviews - but this place is just amazing. It is simply amazing to have breakfast and on the same time to be privileged to observe the wildlife just in front of the house. We saw birds, whales and many other just amazing animals just from the table. Sorry but if you are in... More

I discovered this place on an internet search whilst trying to find a suitable place to stay north of Quebec for whale watching. We booked two condos that looked directly onto the St Lawrence river and the headland. The views were absolutely fantastic. The condos were excellent, plenty of room, two queen size beds in the one bedroom, a balcony... More

A two night stay at the condos Natakam was far too short but even after this short time we left feeling relaxed, peaceful and very content. Finding a place to equally please a 10 year old, her 15 and 17 year old sisters and their mother, too, is not always successfull, but It was ever so easy in Essipit. As... More

We stayed 2 nights for our local whale watching tour. Cottages were clean, large, well equipped, great view of the river. Staff were welcoming and helpful. We found it central to the attractions we were using in the area. Great visit.

The best part of our Quebec trip. The place is peaceful and my feeling being here was just magical. The condos (or apartment) are clean and the people are hospitable and helpful. From 7:00 in the morning when whales come out dancing and playing in the water. I would love to go back here again.

This was an extension onto our fortnight trip to south eastern Canada so we wondered if we had added one thing too many with the extra mileage - but no!! it was well worth the extra time spent here and I wished we had more than one night.

We stayed in Natakam for three days and loved every minute of our stay. It was spotless and had everything we could possibly need to make our meals. The views from our condo windows were spectacular. We saw a few whales from our the windows and balcony. Lovely trails to walk on. All and all a wonderful peaceful environment

“We had an upstairs condo which can only be improve the view, but I think most of the middle section of condos have a great view! There are a few trees to the sides which may obscure part of the view for outer condos but every condo faces the river with large windows.”
