Enjoyed a light paddle around some beautiful caves with two excellent, animated, guides. One was bilingual so helped the Anglos but the best jokes were in French! We couldn't find any place that would rent us kayaks without a guide on Les Isle de la Madeleine, so touring on our own was not an option. The two areas they could... More
