Amazing 3 hours kayaking on the Fjord du Saguenay. Our guide, Jean-Daniel, was a fantastic story teller and kayakist. We were only a "two person" group but he took great care of us and taught us how to do some kayak surfing on and in the waves on the Fjord near Anse de Tabatière, after making sure it was safe.

Our guide was talented, skilled and experienced and the gear was in excellent condition! Never had I had better equipment in location to do some sea kayak. Their Boreal Design glass fiber kayaks are above anything you'd rent somewhere else and the view of and on the Fjord du Saguenay in this area is unreal. A must see and must do activity. Would love to go on a 3 days trip with this company. The staff (guides) and owners are really in an other category as of customer service, quality and knowledge! No surprise they got the Gold mention in the national tourism awards...twice!

We we are group of 3 girls (average age of 26) and we went on a 3-day kayak/camping excursion. The equipment provided was in excellent condition. Our guide was very knowledgable, kind, patient and an excellent cook. Our guide took good care of us the entire trip, giving a pep-talk when needed and doing all of the cooking and cleaning for the meals. I have never been as spoiled camping as I have on this trip, the food was amazing and our guide to great pride in his job and it showed. Three days of kayaking was a challenger but very satisfying and the Fjord is breath-taking. I would recommend this trip (with Fjord en Kayak) to anyone looking for a fun outdoor adventure without the stress of planning every last detail.

Excellent equipment; good long 3 hour tour. Young guide was knowledgeable and interesting. Going out into the fjord was a bit scary; waves were rather choppy, so thought guide should have questioned everyone's comfort level; we were not the only ones suspect about going out into the middle of the water where it was rough.

We did a 2-day tour on the Fjord. We didn't book in advance because we didn't know about the company until we saw their small ad in our hotel. Our group was small - only the two of us and another couple. Neither of us were experienced at kayaking nor very athletic but the trip was a success anyway. The trip is organized in a way that allows everyone to have fun regardless of their skills and training. The guide (Marc-Andre) was great - very helpful in teaching us to paddle, knew a lot about the area and animals, and spoke English (very well). He cooked for us, made a camp fire, and helped install the tents. The food provided during the trip was healthy, well balanced, and included local treats (e.g., pies for dessert from a local bakery with local fruits and berries - a very nice touch). Also, a welcome bottle of wine was served at dinner. Travelers are invited to bring their wine as well. We had a great time, nice company, and it felt very personal and warm the way we were treated (unlike many other tourist companies that treat you as a number).
We absolutely recommend this company and this attraction.

We did the two hours family kayak tour with our 8 and 3 year old kids. We were provided with very good equipement and kayaking gear and had a wonderful instructor Antoinne who gave us lot of information about the fjords and local legends in english. It was our first sea kayaking experience and was definitely a very memorable one.
