Gaspe, QC- looking for info on Canoe and Kayak rentals & sitesHi- I leave Vermont for the Gaspe Peninsula on Friday of this week and am a bit frustrated with the lack of guide books/ good info that I have come up with.
Has anyone out there taken a river trip or gone sea kayaking in the area? I am an experience paddler and will be driving around the whole peninsula so I am interested in tipis for any of the rivers, coastal paddling destinations.
Thanks and keep having fun, wherever you go.

1As you get into any tourist spot - gift shop, accommodation, museum, information office - you'll be SUBMERGED by dépliants, folders, fliers, magazines and even books filled with advertisements. The problem with these sources of info is that one comes in contact with them when one is already there, and time is tight when travelling. These places would do well in posting their publications on the net, so one could research beforehand. It is puzzling that people travel all over and there are hundreds of guidebooks, but there isn't a single one that presents the obvious trip. I am going to Vermont in a couple of weeks for 16 days, and I had to scout the internet for hours on end and read 2 guidebooks to finally draw my route - as if I were the first one to spend a couple of weeks in Vermont! Such is life.

2Just back from the Gaspe Peninsula and have one decent resource for river trips to report. Cime Aventure is an outdoor center/camping resort on the Bonaventure River in the town of Bonaventure. They rent canoes for day or overnight trips on this STUNNING river. The river is all class 2 with little consequence if one should tip their boat so anyone can do this trip. I did a 2 day 36 kilometer trip and had a great time.
Cime has a many camp sites, yurts and cabins to rent. There is also a restaurant and a small spa on site. My only compalint is that they offer no information that you do not ask for. The service is quite Quebecois in that sense. Ask every possible question to get the most out of your stay there. Their website is pretty helpful.
