It is one of the best areas to dive in the north-east of the Canada. Marine Park is perfectly design for divers. You'll find an ample parking lot with an attendant ($7.80 a day per diver), large (complimentary) plastic carts to get your gears from the car to the benches or in the case of the "West Cric" dive-site very close to entrance to the water. Shower, lockers and large basin with fresh water right on the premisses.
By the way, there are three entrances located not too far from each other, but underwater it is one large area. You can enter at West Cric and 10 minutes later get out at the East Cric. Or proceed to the Anemone Bay.
Water's temperature, depending on the season and depth, can fluctuate between -3 to +7'C, so dry-suit is highly recommended.
Underwater life is plentiful and in large quantities. As soon as you submerge, you'll find "forests" of frilled anemones, plumose anemone, northern red anemone, and scarlet psolus. Also one can find an atlantic wolf fish, all kind of nudibranchs, sunstars of many color varieties, arctic sunstars, smooth sunstars, spiny lump suckers, fields of pink to red soft corals, polar sea-stars and much, much more.
Between dives you can observe as minke whales, belugas, dolphins and other pelagic animals resurfacing for to take a breath. One can also take a short trip for watch whales or, if you are a “Lord of The Ring” fan, you can drive an hour and get to the fjord of Saguenay. Scenery is breathtaking.
I truly believe that if you decide to visit Saguenay-Saint Laurent Marine Park, it will instantly become one your favorite places to visit and dive.
