Overview
More
Parc national de l'Ile-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Perce stands out with its rich natural, historic, and geological heritage. Sculpted by time and the sea, at the Gaspe Peninsula's tip, it has the fortress of Bonaventure Island and the magnificent stone vessel of Perce Rock-Quebec's tourism emblem. Its outstanding flora and fauna, including its famous colony of Northern Gannets make it a must-see for visitors, as do the island's old homes-the last witnesses to the way the islanders lived a century ago.

As we drove down the hill into Perce there was a ring of mist around the rock which was very pretty. You can walk down and over the causeway and get up close. The town is very attractive but a little touristy.

The boat trip was well worth the $35 per adult that we paid to access the island. The boat took us around Rocher Perce and on a slow cruise past the cliffs of Bonaventure so that we could see the antics of many gannets and...More

Beautiful views. Have long/short ways. Go into the nature and see the birds. You have to pay some fees to entry.

It is a long (45 min.+) walk to the other side of the island from the dock to see the gannets but worth it. Bear in mind it is 50% uphill (both ways..!!) and baby strollers, etc., will be a challenge. But the sights are...More

A unique place on earth. The largest sanctuary of Fou de Bassan. There is great opportunity to take great photo. If you have problem to move yourself, forget this excursion. For others, expect great moments.
