What a beautiful way to spend a couple 9of hours walking a well marked well maintained trail overlooking some of the most beautiful scenery in the area. Good for all fitness levels it's not a challenging walk.
Right in town, by marine mammal center & boats. Takes about 10 minutes to midpoint where you can spot whales. We didnt see whales when we went, but later in day people saw belugas. If youre staying in town— wish we’d gone at different times...More
If you are in Tadoussac and you have time it is a good place to go and see the horizon. Very peaceful and beautiful place, I did not see whales from there. It is 15 minutes walk from the Hotel Tadoussac in front of the...More
You & your car can get FREE ferry transport from Baie-St-Catherine to Tadoussac. We really love this small trail. Not too many people and no amazing view. But everything you feel is comfort. We even watched the whales on the shore. Very recommended tour!!!

All summer! Towards the very end of August and into September the whales start migrating up to the estuary of the St Lawrence river where it meets the Atlantic to migrate to the Caribbean for the winter. There are 13 different species of whales in the St Lawrence including the largest in the world, the blue whale. I have never seen one in my many visits to the area. To see the whales, if you are able, I recommend kayaking....in a wet suit which they provide. One time I went with the kayaking company right down below the Hotel Tadoussac and a 10+ metre humpback breeched slowly right next to me! That was a thrill of a lifetime!
A trip to Tadoussac is not complete without a visit to the Cap de Bon Désir maybe a 5 or 10 minute drive north of Tadoussac along the main route. It's a federal site where one can sit out on the expanse of flat rock by the river to observe marine life. There are naturalist, university student 'interpreters' who are available to give information to the public about the whales...and dolphins, seals etc.. Cap de Bon Désir is a must when visiting Tadoussac. And yes, the 15 minute walking path close to the Hotel Tadoussac is a pleasant walk where you might see some whales breaching; also along the shoreline to the end of the bay where you will see whales.Have a good trip!
