Explore Kouchibouguac by canoe, kayak, paddleboat, paddleboard or rowboat

Paddling in Kouchibouguac National Park is an excellent opportunity to see the park like you've never seen it before! Canoe or kayak along the waterways where the Mi'gmaq paddled for thousands of years.

Short or long distance paddles bring you to destinations that offer discovery, seclusion and peace.

Kouchibouguac's flat rivers and lagoons hide many bays and inlets, where nesting ducks gather and otters feed. The sheltered lagoon is carpeted with large beds of eelgrass hiding fish and crabs.

If you choose to spend the night, two backcountry campgrounds are available for canoe camping: Sipu and Pointe-à-Maxime.

Canoes, kayaks, paddleboats and rowboats are available for rent at the Ryans Rental Centre.
