At the Marine Mammal Interpretation Centre, one can get up close and personal with a 13-metre-long sperm whale, view baleen belonging to the right whale Piper, touch a narwhal tooth, and explore the acoustic world of whales. Discover the largest collection of whale skeletons in Canada! Naturalists are present to answer your questions.

And, if you keep your eyes peeled, you might even get lucky and spot a beluga swimming just a stone’s throw away!
