Port of Tadoussac

Tadoussac is a scenic and historical village -- Canada's oldest, in fact -- that sits at the confluence of the St. Lawrence and Saguenay Rivers. Victory Cruise Lines sails to this port, which is home to the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park, Canada's first marine national park.

Brightly colored houses stand in contrast to deep blue waters and skies in this more than 400-year-old bayside town. Whale watching is the most popular thing for visitors to do here, and the best time to spot whales in the nearby waters is from spring through fall.
