La gran atracción desde finales de junio hasta mediados de octubre es su llegada en el canal de Sainte-Marie. Cada año, estos cetáceos, que miden hasta 15 metros por 40 toneladas, recorren más de 5000 km para dar a luz. Observables desde las playas, son alrededor de 2000 a 3000 para asegurar el espectáculo: canciones de los machos, saltos, y el nacimiento de los crios.
Durante al menos una temporada, la ballena hembra una vez hizo su elección, mantener la misma pareja. La hembra eventualmente dejará las aguas heladas para dar a luz en aguas más cálidas, incluida la isla Sainte Marie. Cuando emerge el becerro, la madre lo traerá a la superficie para su primer aliento. Las ballenas jorobadas visitan principalmente la isla Sainte-Marie entre julio y septiembre.
