Anyone have any info on sea kayaking Anticosti Island? Thanks.
Gulf of St. Lawrence
Have you checked with Parks Canada? It’s been years since I’ve been up that way, but I recall permission is needed to travel about the islands shores by kayak.
I found a somewhat dated reference googling:
Anticosti Trip Planner
Trip planning notes: The coast is mostly wild with the 300 inhabitants of Anticosti centered mainly in Port Menier. Sépaq Anticosti must grant permission for you to travel by kayak. There are now camping permit fees for part of the island.
Note that in fall, deer hunting is king. The Auberge Port Menier offers an excellent post-trip celebration feast of lobster in fine dining style.
