Sea-kayaking offers you a way to discover Orléans Island from a different perspective while enjoying outdoor summer fun and low-impact exercise. No experience is needed for this sport.

You’ll meet your experienced guide in Quebec City or at the Parc maritime de Saint-Laurent where you will be provided with all the necessary equipment and simple-to-follow techniques to paddle.

Your guide will then give you a brief safety talk (weather, map, paddle …) and show you how to set and use your kayak. Once you’re ready, sit in your kayak and follow your guide along the coast as you experience summer beauty. You will have plenty of opportunities to stop for photos and rest breaks.
