Brave the cold waters of the St. Lawrence and explore the sea beds in search of polar stars and other curious colourful marine animals and plants.

At the diving base, you will first be introduced to the different species that you will be able to observe during your dive as well as the safety instructions.

Then, wearing the appropriate equipment, you will go to the launching area and let yourself be immersed in this underwater beauty.

This activity is offered in collaboration with the Fédération québécoise des activités subaquatiques (Quebec Federation of Underwater Activities).
