  • The unique feeling of being the first and the only ones on the water.
  • The coastal landscapes of La Malbaie and Cap-à-l'Aigle in winter.
  • Beautiful cliffs with cascades of ice.
  • An area where aquatic birds (Common Eiders and Long-Tailed Ducks) concentrate.

The environment you will be visiting:

The proposed excursions will allow you to tame the icy waters of the St. Lawrence estuary at the end of winter and in early spring. Icebergs and ice floes, seals and Long-tailed Ducks, sunshine and blue sea water... be among the chosen few who paddle out at this time of year!

About safety

Thanks to the much closer supervision of participants, the use of double kayaks and the wearing of warm clothes, sea kayaking turns out to be as secure and stimulating in winter as it is in summer.
