  • Good interactive presentation, rich in information. Allows you to better understand and prepare for a whale excursion, and places to understand the issues. The reception is very professional and answers the different questions. Go around the building, the setting is nice (small beach)

  • If you like the sea and its occupants, take the time to visit this centre. A lot of information about the wildlife of the St. Lawrence.

  • Such a knowledgeable and enjoyable place. You never fail to see whales from the rocks just outside. I can’t wait to go back :)
  • It's actually pretty small, but you can learn a lot about whales, belugas and other marine life. They also show a nice video that tells the story of a orphan beluga. It was very interesting. It's with the time and money.
