Protected marine area of exceptional biodiversity, the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park is one of the best places in the world for whale watching.
Explore its natural and cultural riches through the Discovery Network, featuring a wide variety of experiences related to the marine environment and the region's maritime history. Things to do: marine mammal and bird watching, sea excursions, diving activities, interpretation centres and museums, hiking, picnics and sunsets with a spectacular view of the fjord or the river.
Planning a sea excursion
Did you know that regardless of your type of watercraft, motorized or not, you can disturb marine mammals and encourage them to change their natural behaviour? To learn about the current regulations in the park, take the short online training course at boaters.navigatingwhales.ca. It's free!
When you see a cetacean, remember to keep a distance of 200 m, or 400 m for endangered populations such as belugas and blue whales.
Water activities in the Marine Park can also involve some risk. Do not underestimate water temperature, wind, tides and other changing weather conditions. Find out before you go!
