  • Very well overall. The visit to about 2 hours. The ability to ask questions of Michel, a passionate researcher is really a plus.

  • Do before the cruise, this allows to discover the different whales in the St. Lawrence River before you see them in "real life"

  • Very informative guides doing important work. It is a non-profit so all proceeds from ticket sales and gift shop go to whale conservation efforts. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Very interesting and you can support beluga research & protection via items at their little boutique.
  • A small but worth visiting center (especially for guided tours/ animations)
  • Very nice spot, nice little exposition
  • Beautiful
