Baie Comeau Canada Cruise Port

Location:

You will be docked near the ferry and cruise terminal of Baie Comeau.

It is some distance into the city, perhaps 2 km into the city center. School busses are used to provide a shuttle into town (5 USD) as well as some shore excursions.

There is public transportation, but it stops on the main road, not at the ferry terminal, and it only operates once hourly, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. (no Sunday service).

Sightseeing:

This unattractive city owes its existence to Robert McCormick, former owner of the Chicago Tribune, who, in 1936, decided to build a colossal pulp and paper factory here.

Attend a world-class multimedia show at the Glacier Exploration Station. Travel back in time to experience 20,000 years of history and understand how the glaciers affected our distant ancestors and changed the landscape. (Plan two hours to take in all the sights and sounds at the Glacier Exploration Station.)

The Baie-Comeau region's landscape has been shaped by glacial retreats and extraordinary and unusual natural phenomena such as a meteorite, which caused the immense Manicouagan crater.
