“Beautiful but No Whales”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

Such a lovely spot, but we didn't see any sign of whales. It's worth walking out there, however, just for the view.

“A Tadoussac must!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Easy to moderate fjordside trail steps from the main drag of Tadoussac. Mostly boardwalk interspersed with rock trails. Don't skip the expository boards that provide sufficient info of the area including its wildlife. Bring a jacket. Temperature can drop fast.

“Fun!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Easy and fun "hike" through woods, on rocks and on wooden boardwalk. We loved it. Perfect for our 4-year old son and for us!

Reviewed June 28, 2014

Beautiful vantage point. I was lucky to spot 2 belugas & 1 minke from here. Get there & watch the sunrise - you'll love it!

“Beautiful walk”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

This is a great 20 - 30 minute walk (or longer if you decide to linger on the rocks or sit on many of the benches). The views of the Saguaney River are beautiful. The walk travles along a boardwalk, rocks and includes a number of small stairways.
