Pointe-Noire is located at the confluence of the St. Lawrence Estuary and the Saguenay Fjord. The Interpretation and Observation Centre showcases the oceanographic phenomena specific to the “confluence” area of the marine park. Visit the exhibit and you will learn all about what causes standing waves and plumes!
But that’s not all you’ll discover here.
A scenic trail and lookout equipped with telescopes allow you to appreciate the beauty of the seascape as you comfortably observe the birds and mammals on the water and the plume that extends across the entrance to the fjord.
You can learn about the network that provides assistance to shipping on the St. Lawrence by visiting the old buildings of this lighthouse station. This facility’s beacons still shipping at the mouth of the Saguenay today.
A team of naturalists proposes a range of theatrical activities that offer greater insight into the region’s natural and cultural heritage.
