No kidding. Ok - I am a geek and i find large projects like this one fascinating. This tour is extremely thorough and you get to see parts of the powerhouse and Dam that you never are shown on other tours. It is really a thorough and excellent tour - and it is well worth the visit to get there.... More

Very educational for children and adults alike, a place written in recent history books because of the tenacity of the locals

Great! It is soo big that you only get the real scope of it as you drive up the mountain beside it. A marvel of construction! Its bigger than Mount Rushmore.

The purpose of our visit was to visit Hydro-Quebec ‘s Manic2 and Manic5 hydroelectric dams which were both magnificent. We were highly impressed by the vastness and extent of these developments. The two young Hydro-Quebec employees, who as our guides, explained the historical and technical details of these dams were well trained and highly efficient.

Drove by the Manic-5 dam on my way to a fishing trip and it is a truly impressive structure. Certainly worth seeing but not if it is your only reason to drive the 2.5 hours from Baie-Comeau to get there.
