An activity for visitors of all ages

Dive into the past with a visit to the Site historique maritime de la Pointe-au-Père, a magnificent museum and lighthouse located along the river. Starting in July, an outdoor tour, complementary to the visit of the submarine, invites you on a walkway dotted with terminals with an electronic tablet. The tour highlights the "Super Powers of the Onondaga" in a fun and interactive way: How did the people live in the submarine? How could the submarine dive so quickly and how did it communicate? Learn all of the secrets of the Onondaga!

Getting hot outside? Get in the water! 

With nearly one kilometre of fine sand, the Pohénégamook Beach is among the most beautiful beaches in Quebec. With your family or your sweetheart, or on your own, you can go swimming, rent boats like canoes, kayaks, paddleboats and paddleboards, and even camp on site on unserviced lots that can accommodate motor homes, trailers and tents. In addition, kids will be thrilled to try out one of the largest inflatable water games in Canada!

An enchanting place to stay

Do you love the outdoors, but prefer to stay in a cabin rather than a tent? Then you're sure to love the new four-season eco-refuges of the Société d'écologie de la batture du Kamouraska (SEBKA). They include a fold-away double bed, a table, a sofa bed, an incinerating toilet and a combustion stove, and all sanitary services are nearby. You will also be able to enjoy a fire pit, a picnic table and a breathtaking view of the magnificent St. Lawrence River.
