9. Canada’s Most Famous Sub – Que.
Come to Québec to climb inside the Onondaga, the only submarine in Canada that’s open to the public. Pointe-au-Père, a district in the city of Rimouski, is your HQ for a behind-the-scenes look at over 200 years of maritime history. Located at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River in eastern Québec, Pointe-au-Père showcases the Empress of Ireland Pavilion – a tribute to the doomed passenger ship that sunk during a trans-Atlantic journey in 1914 – as well as the striking Pointe-au-Père lighthouse, and the famous Onondaga submarine. Having spent 33 years on active missions around the world, the Onondaga is the longest serving sub in Canadian history. And now visitors can climb onboard to discover the secrets of crew life under the waves.
