Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park


Two women sitting on the red chairs installed by Parks Canada on a rocky cape while enjoying some tea in a thermos and using binoculars to watch marine mammals.

It’s hard to choose from among the area’s many exciting activities! Ask a diver live questions as he films the seabed for you, or take the plunge and explore the waters at your leisure. Are you intrigued by the small creatures found on the seashore or are you more interested in eyeing the horizon in the hopes of seeing a huge whale? In every case, this is a spectacular region of natural wonders.
