When you travel to the tip of the Gaspé peninsula, it is easy to understand why the region was listed as one of the Top 10 world-wide travel destinations in National Geographic a few years ago. The Chic Choc mountains and the magnificent coastal lagoons and salt marshes come to mind, as well as the legendary Percé Rock, natural icon... More

Even we only are allowed to hike one trail due to weather, but we enjoyed. Our teenage sons absolutely like it

Simply amazing! The trails took us to the gannets colonies on top of the cliff. Just watching these birds (and hearing the unrelenting noises they make) is worth the effort getting to this island off Perce. The longest trail bring us leisurely back to the dock, meandering through the houses of long gone settlers, with the famed Perce Rock looming... More

We were on our way from Gaspé to our next destination and just happened upon this boat trip to Bonaventure. It was truly amazing! First the boat takes you to the beautiful pierced rock and then around the Bonaventure island where you see the seals and gannets on the cliffs. You can choose to go on the island and see... More

We decided to take the shortest trail because we did not want to walk to much (not in shape the seniors) but it was the hardest because it was very abrupt to climb when not use to do exercise hi!hi! But we did it and proud of it to! My sister and her husband enjoyed seeing the birds on top... More

We took the ferry over. It was easy to get tickets as there are many places to buy them in town and they are all the same price ($25/ticket). Regardless of where you buy tickets, however, everyone gets on the same ferry. The boat tours around Perce Rock and views the gannet colony and resident seals on the far side... More

On a beautiful day this is a fun adventure. There is a fee to enter the hiking zone; chemical toilets are places at the beginning and middle of trails. To end the hike with a delicious fish soup in the small cafe makes for an enjoyable day.

This was a wonderful trip. Next time we will go earlier to allow for a longer hike. A very special place.

The seagull like birds nesting in the thousands was amazing and very smelly. Lots of bothersome flies too. Magnificent views of the ocean and seals in the water.
