At the Cap de Bon-Désir Interpretation and Observation Centre, Parks Canada invites you to take advantage of an exceptional observation point for whale watching. Located 20 minutes from Tadoussac on the North Shore, in the Bergeronnes, the Centre borders the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park; home to numerous marine mammals and birds. Upon arrival, discover the old lighthouse station. By visiting the exhibition “Cap sur l’observation!” You can learn about the history of the lighthouse from its keepers and about navigation. Then, go to the coastline where you can see marine mammals that come to feed a few metres from the shore. Interpretive guides are on-site to provide information about your observations. Fun and discoveries for all!
