Kayaking on Saguenay Fjord - in L'Anse-Saint-Jean, Québec

Rating: Four Stars - The majestic Saguenay Fjord is the most scenic I have seen in North America. I wish I can live here! Really takes all your stress as you look around the diffent points of the fjord (goes for 40 miles). We have the chance to see a pair of belugas (whie whales) bobbing near us.

  Put in at the pier of L'Anse-Saint-Jean, Québec.
  Paddle to the other side of the cove.
Continue hugging the south bank, then to the
  middle of the fjord. Return via same route.
Estimated round trip
  distance = 5 miles

An earlier tour group just finished.

Sandra is our guide. We are all wearing spray skirts.

We are taught how to operate the rudder and how to escape a capsized kayak.

Let's kayak!
