At the Exploramer marine activity centre, I was able to touch all sorts of marine animals like sea urchins and sea cucumbers, and to get to know the sharks found in the St. Lawrence! They weren’t actually alive…but it was fascinating…The trip out to sea was a blast of fresh air. The St. Lawrence’s beauty and rich biodiversity are amazing!
