Reviews for Marina de Tadoussac
Very friendly and helpful, 2016-10-22
Captain: , Catawba Island, Ohio (269)

Stopped over on our way up the St Lawrence in mid October. Staff were very courteous and helpful. Will be back!

Good stopover, 2016-10-05
Captain: , Chaumont, NY (257)

August. Nice stop although we had to raft to another unoccupied boat; very busy marina and rafting is common. Shawn the manager was very helpful and pleasant and good for a yarn or two. Nice town, local grocery store basic, really good bread and pastry shop nearby. We saw a lot of whale and seal activity upon leaving heading east.

Great spot, 2016-09-06
Captain: , Montreal (328)

Excellent marina.

Everyone was helpful and tries to speak decent English.

Nice town.

good service, 2016-07-14
Captain: , Montreal (201)

Nice area, must pay extra $10/day for 30 or 50 amp

Much nicer than expected, 2015-07-25
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (2870)

First, as of Jul 2015, the satellite photo showing on ActiveCaptain does not show any docks in place. They obviously remove them for the winter. Don't worry, there are floating docks here.

I won't repeat all the other accurate and good info from the last few posts, but will add that you should take the marked short Loop walk around the rocky point south of the marina. Also, there is a path up the closet mountain/hill that does a Loop with great views and has plenty of wooden stairs to make it easier and safer.

The local grocery store is 1 mile from the marina and very well stocked for a small town.

During our visit, the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful, despite being busy in the height of their season.

Great stop, only stop!, 2015-07-19
Captain: , Cape Coral, FL (1521)

Marina de Tadossac is the only marina in town, so we appreciated how welcoming they were. They do not take reservations, but will do their best to fit as many boats on the dock as possible, even rafting them up if the weather allows - they don't like to raft in bad weather/strong winds. We stopped for two nights on our way up the Saguenay, and three nights coming back down from the Saguenay as we waited for better weather to get back to Quebec. Nice showers and laundry ($1.50 for the washer and same for dryer). All staff speaks English adaquately for us non French speakers. The dockmasters were very helpful during our entire stay, answering lots of questions about the area, local navigation and weather. All docks are side ties, and boats are measured and charged for overall length (overhanging dinghies on davits and bowsprits get counted). At the same time, they'll work with boat owners to get boats closely (but safely) spaced on the docks so that they aren't wasting any space - on our first day we moved the boat back three different times as other boats came and left - not a problem for us. The walk into town is very short and easy, with access to a small but well stocked grocery, bank, post office and lots of restaurants. There's a great walking path around Ile de la Pointe - go sit on the rocks and watch the beluga and fin whales. We even had a fin whale right in Tadoussac Bay.

Will not accept reservations, 2015-06-30
Captain: , Wilmington, DE (552)

We called on the radio as we arrived and there was one space available. The town is interesting and charming. Marina folks spoke English. I suggest you have a back up plan and do not rely on getting a space.

Fabulous stop in whale waters, 2014-08-12
Captain: , Beach Haven NJ (150)

Here on 50' powerboat - welcomed, with great help getting to dock in the thick fog - delightful, accomodating dockmaster; great restaurant in town (Chez Mathilde's); and wonderful whale watching. Just a delightful place in "rural" Quebec. One easy day from Quebec City (coming downstream) - 15' of tide - floating docks. Lots of fog.

Don't want large power boats, 2014-07-26
Captain: , Corpus Christi, TX (732)

Called for a couple of different nights...was clear they didn't really want a 48-foot power vessel.

Beautiful spot, well serviced and a great base to explore the area, 2013-10-20
Captain: , Montreal (253)

Friendly, helpful marina in 'downtown' Tadoussac. Restaurants, bars and stores within a short walk. From here, it's a day's sail to the top of the fjord or a couple of hours to Les Escoumins for diving or whale watching. An obligatory stop on the St Lawrence, although they never take reservations.

Great place to stop, 2013-04-22
Captain: , Oka, Quebec (260)

Tadoussac is a "don't miss". The marina is allways full from mid-july to the end of august but they will try to find you a place, if your boat is not too big. Services at the marina are over the average if you're not in the "rush hour" ( 2-3 hour before the good tide ).
The town itself is what everybody want in a port, restaurants, grocery, things to do.

Great staff, nice town, 2013-01-31
Captain: , Gloucester, MA (807)

Excellent staff at the marina, good restaurant righ ton the premisis, and a nice town to explore.

Great location, town and facility, 2012-07-24
Captain: , Bayfield, WI and the ICW (1380)

Rest rooms and showers aren't first rate, but clean and new. The town has great food and scenery, always something to do.

We had a bad experience, 2011-10-19
Captain: , Solomons, MD (1915)

The marina does not accept reservations. Dockage is available on a first-come, first-served basis. When we got to the marina at 5PM they said we could not dock. They said that we were too big. The weather forecast was for light winds that night. We are a 44' Defever. The marina advertises taking larger boat than ours in a Quebec cruising guide. We watched 3 sailboats come in after us and moor. All 3 sailboats were from the province of Quebec.

Friendly Marina, 2011-07-26
Captain: , Sodus Point, NY (718)

Stopped here after spotting our first beluga whale. It was easy to get to and highly active marina. I only paid $1.41 per foot. But, they do not take reservations. I had to raft to another sailboat the first night, but at least they provide that option. Grocery store is small but has a little of everything and is reasonably priced. Unique shops in town including some homemade chocolates and jewelry. Dock crew speaks English, but office staff does not. Free WiFi, but limited bandwidth.

Great Stop, 2010-10-16
Captain: , North Myrtle Beach, SC (3210)

Good prices and folks. Pay to use showers, but that is kinda neat. Fun town to walk around and sight see.

Jump off site for Baie Eternitie, 2010-03-02
Captain: , Sarasota (1427)

Previous review was spot-on. When the wind is blowing, docking can be real exciting. Floating docks, of course, like all of Quebec. Helpful staff - folks under 30 usually are bi-lingual, but it's good to know a little boating French. Several excellent places to eat in town and a couple of markets. The hotel is lovely. Many whales in the area. Be sure to up the Saguenay.

Small, tight marina but great whale watching, 2008-08-06
Captain: , Newport, RI (10275)

The tadoussac marina is at the mouth of the Sagueny river which is a major site for whale watching. The marina is very tightly packed and you had better be prepared to make very tight U turns to get onto the dock. The staff will help spin you, but it can be "interesting". Most of the staff speaks only French. Power appears to be 15 or 20A only. The town itself is nice, but very touristy.
