You will be docked near the ferry and cruise terminal of Baie Comeau.
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).
This unattractive city with a population of 21,500, 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.
Stroll the lovely quartier Sainte-Amélie. Learn about regional wildlife at the Maison de la Faune. Or visit the new Centré Boréal, a fascinating Glacier Center where visitors can walk through a man-made glacier, experiencing its temperature, sound and movement.
Just a few minutes from the port, you will be warmly welcomed by the local population in a thriving and vast natural setting. Browse at the many boutiques where you will be sure to find the perfect souvenir.
Baie-Comeau is very french speaking.
