Cruises from Saguenay River
The 96 km Saguenay River is a major river of Quebec, Canada. It is bordered by steep cliffs and has a very high flow rate. The river drains into the Saint Lawrence River at Tadoussac, where its cold waters merge with the warmer waters of the St. Lawrence River, creating a krill-rich feeding ground that draws marine mammals and birds.
As many Beluga whales breed in the cold waters at its mouth, Tadoussac has become one of the best whale-watching areas in the world, and is also a popular site for sea kayaking. In these waters you may also encounter the rare Greenland shark.
