On the many promontaries along the St. Lawrence, Baie Sainte-Catherine is a true marine paradise. Many come to surf the waves. In a kayak or zodiac, the experience is stunning when accompanied by the blow of whales. Here the beaches hide in rocky creeks and the river resembles the ocean. Hunting and fishing lovers, hikers, VTT and horseback riding enthusiasts are blessed by this sector’s wealth.
