Tourisme Charlevoix

Whales-watching

In brief

In the heart of Québec, the Saint-Lawrence River stands out thanks to its unparalleled marine life and exceptional splendour. The Saguenay-Saint-Lawrence marine park is home to an incredible fauna, up to 13 whale species and other fascinating marine mammals visit regularly. Joining a Croisières AML memorable excursion or strolling the Pointe-Noire Interpretation and Observation Centre site, are two of the countless ways to observe the bustling marine life from up close and personal.

    Charlevoix’s marine mammals are photogenic. On board zodiacs or larger boats, live the adventure of whale-watching on the St. Lawrence. These giants can even be observed from the shore, sometimes even without binoculars.
