Whitewater Sport Yaking gives you the chance to challenge the dynamic Rocher Fendu rapids on your own as you steer your Sport Yak through the rough and tumble waves on the mighty Ottawa River.

In our two-person inflatable kayaks, travel down the river under the watchful eye of our guides, who provide support from their kayaks. All the steering and all the paddling is up to you: your boat is completely under your control. Prepare for lots of flipping and swimming! This is OWL’s most physically challenging adventure and is a trip for experienced rafters or those up for a full day of paddling. All participants must paddle from start to finish, as your guide is not in the boat to help.

As the currents calm down, transfer to the comfort of OWL’s signature pontoon boat. Put on your dry clothes and feast on a freshly prepared grilled buffet. Once back at the OWL Resort, enjoy the rafter wrap up; please note that OWL’s Sport Yaking trip does not guarantee a video presentation.

Minimum Group Size: 12 people

This trip travels down river independent from the other rafts (Big Boat & Sport Raft). For safety reasons rafts always travel in groups. Without at least 12 rafters signed up for the sport yak option, this trip cannot run. If you are registered for Sport Yaking and we do not have at least 12 registered “yakers”, we will automatically transfer you to sport rafting, a trip of equivalent value.

Rates: Thursdays Sundays
Per Rafter $140 $160

Midday Snack

Trip B has a late lunch – so to keep you going we provide a small snack. More rapids follow after the break. You’ll be challenged and exhilarated by the fast moving water and tumbling waves.
3:00

Lunch!

At the bottom of the rapids you will meet OWL Rafting’s signature Pontoon Boats. Once you hop aboard the pontoon boats you will find your dry clothes and towels and a hot BBQ meal waiting for you. Enjoy your hearty lunch as you cruise back to the OWL Resort

Back at the Resort

Once back at the OWL Resort, please return your life jackets, paddles, and helmets to the gear lofts before joining us at the beach for your last work out of the day, the “Beach Party”, as we put away your yaks. If you have plans back in the city and need to rush away, you are now back at your vehicle and able to head out.
