Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park

At the Marine Environment Discovery Centre, dive into the fascinating world of the Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park, from starfish to the largest marine mammals.

In addition to being an excellent diving destination, the site offers spectacular views of the St. Lawrence estuary. With or without binoculars, take a seat on the gallery or in the amphitheatre and marvel at the landscape and these majestic animals with their powerful breath! Seals and birds will surely also appear.
