Port-Menier to La Romaine
The next morning you will arrive in Havre-Saint-Pierre at about 4:45 a.m. and set off again about two hours later. If you are an early riser, take the time to disembark and go for a stroll along the waterfront on Promenade des Anciens.
You will then spend the morning sailing to Natashquan. A short stop in the early afternoon (lasting about 1h30) will give you a chance to discover the birthplace of Gilles Vigneault, a famous Québec poet and singer/songwriter. You can also go for a stroll along a wide beach and visit Les Galets, former fishermen’s cabins that have been designated a heritage site by the Government of Québec.
In the late afternoon, the ship will stop in Kegaska, which marks the beginning of the Lower North Shore. Here you will have two hours to visit the village, including an Anglican church, a historic sawmill and a fish factory. You can also go for a walk along a trail covered in broken shells and see the remains of the Brion shipwreck.
The Bella Desgagnés will then continue on to La Romaine, which you will reach that night, and then set off a few hours later.
