Geocaching is a modern treasure hunt – a sport that is growing in popularity with people of all ages. Given the latitudinal and longitudinal co-ordinates, participants use their GPS (Global Positioning System) unit to locate the hidden "cache", a small box with a logbook to record their visit.

Geocaching provides you with an opportunity to learn about the unique natural and cultural heritage of the national park at your own pace. The geocaches on the shores of the Saguenay–St. lawrence Marine Park tell parts of the park's history and help you discovery its biodiversity. Whether this is your first visit or you have been to the park many times, this challenging adventure will make you see the Saguenay–St. lawrence Marine Park in a brand new light and confirm it as one of Canada’s national treasures.

To participate, here's what you need to do:
Obtain all the co-ordinates for the geocaches available at Saguenay–St. lawrence Marine Park from www.geocaching.com:

  • The White Whale to the Pointe-Noire Interpretation and Observation Centre
  • Magtogoek to Cap-de-Bon-Désir Interpretation and Observation Centre
  • A Fragile Ecosystem to the Saguenay–St. Lawrence Endangered Species Trail
  • La Fidèle to our Visitor Centre in Saint-Fidèle
Use a GPS or smartphone to find the caches. Respect the natural surroundings by staying on marked trails – all geocaches are directly accessible from trails or public areas.
Do not leave anything (trade items) inside the geocaches as they may attract wildlife.
