Cruises to admire the St. Lawrence River’s whales depart from Tadoussac, Saint-Siméon and Baie-Sainte-Catherine piers. On those cruises, visitors can observe one of the world’s most diverse gatherings of great whales and cetaceans like the beluga. Each spring, five or six whale species may be seen frolicking in their feeding grounds off the Charlevoix coast. Whale-watching adventures feature a range of vessels – from small Zodiacs to ships carrying several hundred passengers! Discovery cruises of the majestic Saguenay Fjord are also available, and at the Cap-à-l’Aigle Marina, visitors can sign up for sailing lessons on the St. Lawrence.
