Travel Tips for Tadoussac
Quebec's natural wonderland
Tadoussac is a small village situated at the intersection of two rivers: the Saguenay and the St. Lawrence. The French established its first North American trading post here. The town has a history of more than 400 years, even older than the more famous Quebec City. Today, it is a touristic town for those who love to see the whales and belugas, as well as enjoying the nature in general.

Tadoussac ferry (and cruise waters)
"Ferry mandatory - waters 300 m deep"
At the Saguenay fjord mouth it is 300 m deep - too deep to build a bridge. Shortly past that the fjord floor rises up to 10 m in the St Lawrence estuary. This is where the whales feed - from freshwater plankton from the Saguenay, and lots of other good stuff for whales
If you look hard, you can see two ferries - carrying cars and trucks between Tadoussac and Baie Ste Catherine/Pt Noir (click on pic)
