Take part in an ecotourism excursion on the high seas, aboard a covered Zodiac boat!

Two themed excursions are available:

  • Discovering the St-Lawarence (at 11:00 a.m. or 3:30 p.m.)

This excursion offers a first contact with the St. Lawrence. Discover the enchanted world of the St. Lawrence estuary and gulf, witness the hauling of waved whelk and rock crab traps, learn how to handle a crab without getting your fingers pinched and, if you're lucky, spot marine mammals off in the distance.

  • A laboratory at sea (at 1:30 p.m.)

Become an oceanographer during this fascinating excursion. You will have the chance to participate in the collecting of scientific data (temperature, turbidity, salinity, acidity). You will also witness a tagging operation meant to identify a waved whelk, release it and then observe its evolution (size, travel, transformation) when it is captured again. 

You will have access to the Aquarium Park and the Exploramer Museum before or after your sea excursion, where you can discover the marine environment and learn all about the biodiversity of the St. Lawrence.

A sea trip enjoyed by the whole family

(Translated by Google) After visiting the museum, we made the trip to sea. We were only 2 families which made this trip very friendly. The guide was really nice, involved the children who were able to help put up the lockers and handle the different finds. The explanations were very good.

Very interesting

(Translated by Google) We had visited the center before the tour, so it was a bit repetitive
