Take the Route 138 between Quebec to Tadoussac to enjoy a Whales Watching Cruise. The trip lasts 2:30.
Fondest memory: There is free ferry to cross the Saguenay River to reach Tadoussac.
It is possible to board in Sainte Catherine to avoid the ferry (30 mn).
Make a cruise on the Saint Lawrence.
The cruise lasts 3 hours and costs 45$CND.
Do not forget the binocular.
Fondest memory: The whales do not respect the appointments but they are always here in Summer to eat and to built up a new plubber for the Winter.
The boats are not allowed to approach the whales at less than 100 meters.
The same regulation applies for the inflatable little boats but the whales ignore the rules and can go closer.
Even if the whales missed the appointment, the view is marvellous.
VISIT THE SACRED HEART CHURCH WHICH ALSO SURVIVED THE FLOOD AND IS BESIDE IT AND THE PARK.------------------------The owner has written a book which was just released in Oct. 2000 telling the story of the LITTLE WHITE HOUSE that had belonged to his mother. It includes all the activities that went on in the Parish and how active the Fathers of the church were in the community and also his mother.
When the police came to tell her she must evacuate she went into the garden and picked a rose and placed it in front of a statue of ST. ANNE and said 'PLEASE PROTECT MY HOUSE'. Miracle or what it was the only one except the church to survive. There had been a previous flood many years before but much smaller and it only lasted 5 hours.
Fondest memory: THE VISIT TO THIS SITE .THE picture is of 'The Sacred Heart Church' beside little house taken from a pamphlet.The inside of this church was fially finished in 1928 the outside in 1905.
Favorite thing: SEE HOW THEY HAVE REBUILT AFTER THE FLOOD AT THE VILLE DE LA BAIE. THE DELTA OF THE RIVIERE DES HA HA.
Favorite thing: in CHARLEVOIX, walk on the shore, whether it's during the day under the sun or just before the night falls.
