Cruise around Percé Rock and Bonaventure Island


Bateau Rocher

From mid May to mid October

The excursion around Percé Rock and Bonaventure Island is THE MUST-DO ACTIVITY when passing through the beautiful picturesque village of Percé. With several departures per day, this commented cruise will fill all your senses.

From the brand new Percé wharf, our boats take you around the legendary Percé Rock, Quebec’s tourist emblem. This 5 million tonne juggernaut, sits near the coast, witness to millennia, it tells us the story through its layers of limestone filled with fossils. !!! It is forbidden to walk to Rocher Percé. The birds that nest there are frightened by the human presence, which endangers the lives of the young. In addition, the cliffs of the Rock crumble under the attack of the elements and lose around 1 ton of rock per day! Our cruise is the way to discover Rocher Percé in complete safety. !!!



Then, we will show you the colorful cliffs of Bonaventure Island. Located near the coast of Percé, this mysterious island will amaze you with its fauna, flora and history. Over 250,000 seabirds come to nest there during the summer season, including the largest northern gannet colony in North America and the most accessible in the world. Nowhere else can you see these majestic birds so closely.
