Shuttle service is offered for canoeists and kayakers who wish to oversee logistics and itinerary of their river trip on the Bonaventure on their own.

To reserve service, contact us at 1 800 790-2463.

To maximise your enjoyment and safety on your Bonaventure river trip, we require that you reserve your shuttle by telephone. This will permit us to suggest an appropriate launch point according to participant experience and needs.


Our individual fee is based on a number of 8 participants or more, per departure. If you are less than 8, you can proceed with your reservation and we’ll try to pair you with other participants. In the case of a departure with less participants, this fee (for 8 people) will have to be divided between the participants, otherwise, departure will have to be postponed or cancelled (at no cost), or you can change the destination.


Note: We do not offer a shuttle service for personal craft on the Famous Tour (20 km course) and the Family Tour (9km course). We cannot take responsiblity for personal craft due to the high volume of commercial craft transported per day for these courses. There are also instances where we transport our commercial craft to the course launch point before the course  participants arrival.


Destination Level of difficulty Minimal water level Kilometers
Bonaventure Lake Advanced 25 m3/sec. and more. Expert when more than 80 m3/sec. 127 km

The transport of personal craft results in further responsibility with regards to material dammage as well as further delays in shuttle departures to the launch point.

For this reason, as of 2017, a fee for personal craft transportation has been put in place.
