Day 1: Meeting at L’Anse-Saint-Jean( 8:00am), we make our way by bus to Baie Éternité to take in one of the most magnificient views of the Fjord, overlooking the majestic Capes Liberté, Égalité and Fraternité. A safety training and briefing session will follow. We head out on the water around 10 :30 A.M. We stay overnight at l’Anse du Portage.

Day 2 : We explore another renowned scenery of the Saguenay, the mysterious Saint-Louis and Saint-Barthelemy islands. Passage in front of Petite Ile where there's a cave that was once home to the Natives. Our place for the night is the Baie Sainte-Marguerite cottage, a meditative spot with beautiful beaches and a delta that offers a unique view of the fjord.

Day 3 : Baie Sainte-Marguerite is the favorite gathering place of the belugas. We will respect their privacy by staying away from them. Before going to bed, we’ll take some time to gaze at the sunset from Pointe à Passe-Pierre.

Day 4 : What greater magic than the place where the Fjord meets the St-Lawrence estuary ? This is an unforgettable moment, with the two waters intermingling and the lapping waves rocking our kayaks. We are hoping to meet some minke whales. We relax and have fun in Tadoussac and Baie-Sainte-Catherine, returning to L’Anse-Saint-Jean by boat.
