Did you know?
The Bay of Rimouski is subject to tides.
Each day, two high tides and two low tides animate life that beats in this large salt marsh. The amplitude of these tides can vary greatly depending on the attraction of the moon and sun on the mass of ocean water. The ocean currents, winds, seasons, the contour of the shoreline and the presence of ice also influence significantly the extent of this back and forth daily.
A “Tour of Tides” with LED light, provides day and night, in real time, relevant information on the evolution of rising and falling tides. It was built on the observation deck of the Promenade in the sea, located at the intersection of Avenue of the Cathedral. A post electronic display also gives us the nature of the measurements.
A tide table is available to you on our website.
