Pointe-noire interpretation and observation centre

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. Observe the open sea, you might be surprised by belugas, small white whales, as they follow the Pointe-Noire coastline.
