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 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.
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.

This is our most common schedule. Your itinerary may vary from this. Please check your invoice for your arrival time or confirm by email. This trip is the most variable as it will change its route depending on the water level. No matter the level, you will have a great day!
