Cap Tourmente BioKit
A BioKit in which you are the hero!
On September 1, 1729, the ship L’Éléphant ran aground near Cap Tourmente. The shipwrecked passengers, who included several dignitaries of the colony of New France, were taken in by the good people of Petite-Ferme. Accompanied by Anne-Marie, the cook, or Siméon, the fur trader’s son, relive the day of the shipwreck and set off on the discovery of the wonders of the Cap Tourmente National Wildlife Area! At each point of interest, you will be offered activities and the choices you make will determine the next steps in your adventure. Locate geocaches using a GPS unit that can be rented at the Interpretation Centre of the Cap Tourmente National Wildlife Area.
