Parc marin du Saguenay–Saint-Laurent is the first park in Québec to preserve and enhance a marine environment. Associating the strength of two parks networks, Parcs Québec and Parks Canada, its mandate is to raise the level of protection of these unique ecosystems and the quality of experiences that visitors can have here. A unique and fabulous spot, where the majestic waters of the biggest estuary in the world joins those of the longest fjord in Eastern Canada, the marine park is overflowing with natural riches and biological diversity. This is one of the rare places in the world where you stand on the coast to observe a giant marine mammal, the blue whale. There are several ways to experience the marine park. Sailing on the waters or treading the soil of the Discovery Network sites, you’ll be amazed by the beauty of the nature here, and by the wide variety of activities that are offered.
Accredited partners, Aventure Écotourisme Québec (AEQ), offer several packages combining kayaking, zodiac tours and hiking. Take a front row seat to admire the natural beauty of the Saguenay-Saint-Laurent marine park.
The Eco-Whale Alliance, with the goal of continually improving marine observation activities to make them a model of sustainable use, has just been created. It brings together the Group for Research and Education on Marine Mammals (GREMM), marine tour businesses for whale watching in the Marine Park as well as Parks Canada and Parcs Québec, co-managers of the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park.
