Wildlife observation activities: in season, a park naturalist will greet you on site with information, spotting scopes and binoculars to help you get a closer look at the park's fascinating native species.
From April to early May, we could observe hundreds of migrating raptors on the west part of the park, at the Belvédère Raoûl-Roy.
From late May to early July, the park is host to hundreds of seabirds that feed and shelter here, notably the eider duck.
From early July to early October, grey seals and harbour seals lounge in the park's bays and coves. The specific observation sites vary depending on the species and the tides.
Wildlife observation and interpretation: with a population of about 200 seals, the park is renowned for great seal watching. These playful year-round residents of the estuary love to rest and bask in the sun on the large rocks in the park's coves and bays. You can easily watch the seals from the shore and learn about them from the naturalist-guide who is on site with binoculars and spotting scopes.
Check the weekly schedule of our activities for their time and place.
