You have your own boats, are independent and all you need is a shuttle? You are at the right spot! 

The shuttle service is for independent paddlers wishing to float down the Bonaventure River in one day with their own boat.


The Family Tour (8 km) with your own craft

Activity Description: Descent of about 1.5 to 2 hours. No rapids.

Launch: Cime Adventure (km 9): With your own means and your own navigation equipment, go to the dock at Cime Aventures. Departure on the river from Cime Aventures between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to arrive at km 1 on time.

Arrival: Cime Aventure – Tracadièche (km 1): The driver will take the shuttle to Cime Aventure (and your car), the rest of the group will stay with the crafts. The driver will then return to the Family descent arrival point, at km 1 on the river no later than 4:00 p.m., to pick up the other participants and crafts. Note that there is no parking at this location, only a 15-minute landing area.

Route to take with your vehicle after your descent: Google route from Cime to the exit at km 1

To not miss the bus: The river patroller leaves the dock at 1:30 p.m. and will be the last person to board the bus, so you must depart before the last patroller. The shuttle that will bring your driver back to your vehicle runs continuously between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Available from June 22nd to August 26th, 2024. Reservations are mandatory.

To Prepare For Your Activity:

  • You are entirely self-sufficient on the route. The activity takes place in a natural environment without cellular network coverage available;
  • Self-assess your skills by clicking here;
  • Consult the difficulty level charter and safety measures based on water flow and temperature;
  • Remember to bring ropes and other equipment to secure your gear in your craft;
  • Know that the water flow influences the river experience. The lower the river, the more obstacles there are to avoid. The river is considered low when below 12 cubic meters per second on this route. Check the real-time flow of the Bonaventure River.
