    Throughout the town, you will find carvings created by the local artists and just a short walk from the town centre and marina, is a beautiful park to take a walk and admire numerous carvings created by artists with different styles (see pictures). There are picnic tables provided for visitors, and it is highly recommended that you take a break for a picnic lunch with the great views of the St Lawrence River.

    There is a good selection of food to suit most palates. The prices are reasonable, but the views of the St Lawrence, especially the sunsets, make this a really worthwhile visit. Plus you can see the activities of the numerous yachts coming in to port, depending on the tidal currents.

    The marina has all the facilities required by the numerous sailboats that visit this port. It is very tightly run, yet you do not feel restrained by unnecessary rules and regulations. The best part is that there are stores and restaurants within an easy walk from the marina.

    Equipment: There is an adequate launching ramp, should you be looking for a location for launching your trailerable sailboat.

    Favorite thing: There is a small tourist office filled with helpful staff and lots of brochures and information of places to go, things to see in this part of Quebec.

    Bonus, squeaky clean public toilets, a welcome respite after hours on the road!

    Favorite thing: If your are travelling between Quebec City and the Maritimes you may consider stopping at Saint Jean Port Joli which is about a one hour drive east of Quebec City.
    There is a group of artisans in this town that make wood carvings. In July there is an International Wood Carving Exhibition. Wood carvers come from Europe and South America to carve and display their art. In some cases they start off with a 2.5 metre ( 8 ft) tall log and carve a sculpture out of it using a chain saw. The picture is the B&B ( La Maison de L'Ermitage" ) we stayed at . They serve a fantastic breakfast . It would be advisable to make reservations
