The Lac-Saint-Pierre Nautical Station, your water destination...
The Lac-Saint-Pierre Nautical Station covers a large part of the south shore of the St-Lawrence River from Contrecoeur to Deschaillons as well as from Lavaltrie to Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pérade on the north shore. This puts Lac Saint-Pierre at the heart of the new Nautical Station.

The beauty and the diversity of the fauna and the flora, an archipelago of more than 103 islands (the most important o the St-Lawrence River) and the largest concentration of herons in North America offer an idyllic destination for pleasure boating enthusiasts.

Brief overview of the "Quebec Nautical Stations" program
The Association Maritime du Québec (AMQ) launched the Quebec Nautical Stations program to support the growth and practice of boating in Quebec. This new program brings together nautical suppliers of goods and services from designated regions in order to make all relevant information, promotions and activities related to boating available to the public. It is intended to benefit local residents and tourists alike.
A nautical station is a recognized regional entity uniting all businesses related to nautical and recreational sports for the purpose of coordinating services, programs and promotions. To be recognized, the station must obtain an official accreditation recognizing the quality and expertise of its partners, programs, and nautical facilities.
