If you are one who wants to try it all, Whitewater Adventure Discovery is designed just for you and your family! This program combines the best rivers in eastern Canada along with various crafts used to explore and appreciate each rivers unique beauty. First, we will challenge the world-famous whitewater of the Ottawa River by raft. We will tackle both the Middle and the Main channels in our 14 ft. self-bailing rafts. Then, we’ll head north along the upper reaches of the Coulonge River for an overnight wilderness canoe trip. Our experienced instructors will teach you the fundamentals of whitewater canoeing and safety to successfully navigate this rugged river. Our fourth day on the water will be an instructional day in the art of whitewater kayaking. We’ll adapt our whitewater skills learned in the canoe and develop more specialized maneuvers for using the “double blade” of the kayak paddle. Our final day will be back on the Ottawa River as we harness the energy and power of the Ottawa’s whitewater to navigate its rapids by riverboard. Along with five days of activities, the Whitewater Adventure Discovery program includes five nights camping, five breakfasts, five lunches, four dinners, all safety equipment and all paddling equipment.
