Activity details

An accessible beach, a well-sheltered bay and the meeting of the river and the fjord are elements that encourage anyone wishing to experience the thrill of sea kayaking to explore the mouth of the Saguenay or the dunes of Tadoussac. An activity that will allow you to discover the Tadoussac Bay and its boats as well as to enjoy a unique view of the city. What an impressive sight when you pass near the Tadoussac – Baie-Sainte-Catherine ferry. Who knows, maybe we will be lucky enough to observe belugas or minke whales.

Each observation must be appreciated. The frequently used expression “the pool is very big” reflects an often-forgotten reality… Whales are scattered over a large area of water and are therefore difficult to predict.
