Starting June 20, 2020  Parks Canada's interpretation and observation centres bordering the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park will offer limited visitor access and basic services.

Check the website before each visit. The addition or withdrawal of services and activities will depend on how the Covid 19 situation evolves.

This Parks Canada Centre, with its rocky shore and covered lookout, is a prime spot for watching whales and seals. Meet the guide who can help you spot these fascinating creatures and tell you more about them. The Centre offers a daily program of interpretive activities during summer. The program “Ocean Encounters,” shows creatures that live on the sea floor (see schedule). Visit an exhibit on whales and the history of the lighthouse. Children can have fun pretending to be explorers. Playground, picnic area and gift shop. Entrance fee allows entry to 3 Parks Canada centres for same day visits.
