Whale watching by boat or on land
It is relatively easy to observe marine mammals along the coasts of the North Shore. Whales are found from mid-May to the end of October in the waters of the region. You will find whale cruise companies in the following municipalities: Tadoussac, Escoumins, Les Bergeronnes, Essipit, Baie-Comeau, Sept-Îles, Havre-Saint-Pierre, Longue-Pointe-de-Mingan, etc.
Located at the confluence of the St. Lawrence River and the majestic Saguenay Fjord, Tadoussac is the gateway to the most beautiful whale-watching site in the world. A true crossroads of life, the region is full of food for marine mammals, making it a privileged destination for all nature lovers. The bay of Tadoussac has already been named "Most beautiful bay in the world"! Of course, patience is required when watching whales!
Migratory whales use the St. Lawrence to feed, especially during the summer season.
