One of the few interruptions to the fjord's natural tranquillity is the equally sublime appearance of numerous whales, their massive bodies breaking the surface of the water as they rise to breathe. Whale-watching is a favorite activity in the area, especially near the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord at the St. Lawrence. Beluga whales can be seen feeding closer to the shore, while the larger blue whales and other common rorquals are more often found at the Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park at the confluence of the two rivers.
