Kayaking safety

Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park

During your kayak outings, we recommend that you be accompanied by a certified guide. Are you planning to go on a marine activity alone? Learn about the safety instructions to follow and equipment to bring to ensure that you have a safe and pleasant experience.

Changing weather conditions and strong ocean currents can make your activity difficult. For your safety, stay near the coast so as not to lose sight of the shore, especially during foggy periods. Due to shipping traffic, it is best to avoid crossing a watercourse from one shore to the other. For more information specific to the Marine Park: Sea kayaking.
