Where

Tadoussac Beach

Dates

Starting June 17th, 2022 (depend of the tides)

Description

Half day : 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 paddle the mouth of the Saguenay or the dunes of Tadoussac. An activity that will allow you to discover the bay of Tadoussac, its boats as well as to enjoy a unique view of Tadoussac. What an impressive sight when you pass near the Tadoussac - Baie-Sainte-Catherine ferry. Who knows, will we have the chance to observe belugas or minke whales?

Full Day : A short day trip with the help of the tides and the currents back and forth to the Tadoussac Dunes. You will surely have the chance to meet those cute and curious harbor seals while admiring the magnitude of these sandy hills, resulting from the passage of a glacier more than 10 000 years ago. Three wonderful lunch spots are available: a hidden beach inaccessible by land, a rocky point overlooking the river at 270 degrees, or a discreet cay. Perhaps we will encounter minke whales or a school of beluga whales during this unique day?
