Beautiful views from rocks along the river, 5 min walking from the parking lot. Saw minke whales and seals, and very far away a big whale, not sure if fin or blue.

After a lovely hike , you arrive at this point where you can sit and watch for whales as they swim by. You can also climb on the rocks to enjoy the views from a more private spot. It is just breath taking.....a must see.

Whether it's sunny or not, this is one walk we do several times each visit to Tad. A combination of walking on rocks and a well-maintained boardwalk, the trail is a loop with spectacular views of the Saguenay and Saint Lawrence Rivers. Often a terrific...More

It has two entrances: one is close to the whale museum and the other is further along towards the spit, beyond the docks where the whale watching boats leave from.
