The St. Lawrence estuary in four stages

Stage 1: The aquarium park

Observe marine life in a series of themed pools. Dip your hands into the tactile pools and touch live crabs, molluscs and echinoderms!


Stage 2: The museum

Take a new, clear-eyed look at the sharks with the exhibition SHARKS: 100 MILLION DEATHS and discover amazing facts about these little-known and vulnerable creatures.

Hollywood movies and the media have transformed sharks into icons of our collective imagination, but is this fear rational?


Stage 3: Sea excursion

Hop aboard the JV Exploramer to watch crab and whelk traps being hauled from the water, and help to gather scientific data.


Stage 4: Exploring the coastline

Put on a pair of waders, grab a bucket and net, and explore the coastline in the company of a naturalist guide. At the end you’ll empty your net and take a close look at what you’ve found.


Savour the moment

What better way to end your visit than at La mer à boire outdoor café! The certified Smarter Seafood menu features a variety of delicious dishes made from lesser-known species from the St. Lawrence.


Before you leave, drop by the souvenir boutique to pick up sea-themed treasures to take home!
