Cruises from Tadoussac, Quebec
Tadoussac is a village in Quebec, Canada, where the Saguenay river enters the Saint Lawrence river. With an indigenous Indian background, the first Canadian fur trading post was established there in 1600. Today’s population is around 800. Today it is a tourist destination drawn by the natural beauty of Saguenay fjord, and beluga whale watching (and 11 other species) due to abundant krill.
The areas is surrounded by natural parks and preserves, and Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park. Quebec City is about 190km upriver. For many visitors to Québec, Tadoussac is the one place in the province they visit outside Montréal and Québec City.
