There’s a nice, easy trail that leads around the point with nice views of the river and bay. If you’re feeling more adventurous you can walk out on to the rocks.

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

This trail is well-marked and accessible. Though we had no luck, apparently this is a good place to see whales. Nice walk in any case!

A very nice way to spend an hour, especially as there is a micro-brewery at the end of it. Lovely views and the walk isn't difficult.

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!!!

Nice for a little walk as you can see the water almost all the time. Worth the walk on the rocks to see whales
