Pointe-noire interpretation and observation centre

   Check before you go. Schedules and service availability are subject to change.

The Pointe-Noire Interpretation and Observation Centre is the perfect place for relaxing and enjoying an exceptional view of the Saguenay and Tadoussac. Since 1875, this site has been guiding navigators thanks to fires built on the headland; they indicate the direction to follow for moving towards the Saguenay. Speak with interpreter-guides on the patio near the keeper’s house. You might be surprised by belugas, small white whales, as they follow the Pointe-Noire coastline. Check out the exhibition to learn more about this site’s history and discover the wildlife living in the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park.
