Hi, how many adults and children can you have in the kayaks? We're visiting in the summer as a family of 5 and would really all like to be in one canoe. Thanks

The best thing for you is one canoe for two and one canoe for three. It's not possible 5 in the same boat.

Bonjour, No problem if it's your first time. And it's better if you booked, but just the day before your trip it's enough. See you in July.
