  • Being the only octagonal lighthouse in Canada makes this a bit different but not being in a dramatic location, or even being able to get a good photo of it makes it a bit less than excellent. Being on...  more »
  • Wow, what a tour! Self guided, with headsets in English and French, you can go at your own pace, and enjoy the submarine! I had been in a small one in Disneyland, but this is exceptional! Seeing the S...  more »
  • The submarine visit was interesting but the other areas were closed for maintenance and the fare was still the same. Still fun if you are in the area.  more »

  • The submarine visit is totally worth the experience. Don't skip it if you find yourself in Rimouski.
  • Fantastic experience, well done with audio guide in your language of choice. A well crafted experience to get to know life in a submarine. Narrated in a very accessible way for adults and children.
  • When we went the sub was open . Was great. I will go back when the light house is repaired.
  • Any adventurous person must visit the submarine. The Empress museum is very nice too.
  • This was an experience not to miss! We took an overnight tour of this submarine. The tour consists of a guided tour of every part of the ship, and how life is on board a sub, you learn all the different stations,, and how to operate them, then they run through a scenario and some fun games. You watch a movie then its time to sleep on the cramped sleeping quarters. In the morning you are severed a continental breakfast, given your submariner's pin and leave the sub. Do not miss this fantastic experience.
