Where

Bergeronnes, Anse à la Cave

Dates

June 11 to October 9, 2022

Description

Formerly known as Les Baleines du Saint-Laurent, this activity allows you to experience the upwelling of the cold waters of the Anse à la Cave sector. For half a day, experience the observation of a great diversity of marine mammals.


Each observation must be appreciated. Indeed, the frequently used expression, "the pool is very big", translates well an often forgotten thought. Whales are scattered over a large area of water and therefore difficult to predict.

The activity begins with a one-hour land-based introduction that will make you comfortable for the next few hours. With the use of double kayaks and the presence of a professional guide, this activity is for everyone, with or without experience.
