Sea kayak basics and safety training 

Departure from l’Anse-Saint-Jean 

We navigate around l’îlet Saint-Jean, nesting grounds of the amusing spotted sandpiper. Then we continue on through the fjord and its many coves. And here the splendor of the fjord opens up before us with a glorious view of the majestic Capes Liberté, Égalité and Fraternité. This enchanting vision will leave you with a lasting impression of this magnificent coastline. 

On the summer hotter days, we take a swim at L’Anse de Tabatière. So bring along your bathing suit! During your outing, you may catch sight of a seal, because the seals love to follow kayaks.

* The itinerary may vary, depending on the tide and the wind
