I didn't expect this to be so easy--they have great equipment that made it a pleasure to paddle. Our guide was very good ay helping us enjoy what he clearly enjoyed--watching wildlife and kayaking the clear, serene waters around the rock.

Shout out to Avolo and especially Gaétan! We took the 2 hour tour to The Rocher at 5:15 pm, and the lighting at that time of day was amazing. The 2-seater kayaks are quite stable, and they outfit you with the proper gear to be comfortable on the water. It's a relatively easy paddle with a few "more intense" moments when you are less sheltered. But just paddle hard and you will be fine. Bonus: Gaétan took great pictures of us with the hole in the background. Now that deserves a tip!!

Had a great time on the Rocher trip. The scenery was beautiful, and Kevin, our guide, was very fun and informative. Just don't expect him to buy you a drink before he asks to look up your (kayak) skirt. Would definitely love to make the 17-hour drive from mid-western Ontario to come here again.

-- On request, John the kayak tour guide, opened gave a 7 AM tour of Perce rock.
-- They usually open at 8 AM.

-- John seemed to know a lot about the Rock formations geological and history details.

-- The gear included wind jackets and all the essentials.
-- Some of us did not know swimming and had never kayaked before. John made us feel very comfortable and walked us through everything.
-- Great sense of humor.
-- There prices are competitive and their office is right next to a pub, parking lot, ice cream place and coffee shop.

I would highly recommend a kayaking tour guided by Avolo Pleir Air. All the equipment you need is provided, even dry bags for your phones/cameras/wallets etc. Our guide, Jonathan, was extremely knowledgeable, inclusive, and helpful. This tour is something that anyone with basic paddling skills would find fun and accessible. Even if you're a total beginner, I got the impression that the guide would ensure that you're safe and having fun. An experienced ocean kayaker would not be challenged by the 2 hour tour, but this trip is nevertheless a great introduction to the area. Our guide was very passionate about the sport, and very well-informed about the local wildlife and geography. I gained a lot from this trip. My only regret is that we didn't book the 4 hour expedition.
