A national park to protect the marine habitat at the Saguenay River confluence into the estuary of St. Lawrence River. Important location of marine mammal scientific research and whale watching tourism.

Boat trips to the marine park are leaving from different harbors along the St. Lawrence River North and South coast. Most important one though is the harbor in Tadoussac. You can get to Tadoussac by bus leaving from Quebec City, bus terminal (~5hrs).

You have to get up early to experience such a breathtaking sunrise over St. Lawrence River. Sunsets in the Côte-Nord area are less impressive as they happen over land.
