We took the 12km river descent, perfect for a teen family. We had fun and enjoyed the surroundings. I love these self-guided-take-your-time descents.

Next time we bring our own kayaks! Terrible experience with this company and spoiled our experience of Baie St. Paul and the Charlevoix region. My son was very disappointed.

A friend and I rented kayaks with Katabatik for a 12 kilometer trek down the St. Laurence River. The people who worked there were very helpful and the price was reasonable. A great way to see nature and sea life.
