Jutting out into the Gulf of St. Lawrence at the tip of Quebec’s Gaspé Peninsula, Percé rock is one of the world’s largest natural arches surrounded by water. An iconic symbol of Quebec’s maritime region, this massive limestone formation is 433 metres long, 90 metres wide and 88 metres at its highest point. It’s one of the first things you see as you enter the quaint seaside village of Percé, where you can arrange a trip aboard a local fishing boat. From July to September, Captain Michael Moreau takes visitors out for cod, mackerel and striped bass. Or if you’re there in late April to late June, you can try your hand at catching lobster, learning how to bait traps and haul them in.
