Northeast Coast Ecology Sea Kayak Trip

Dr. Gerard Courtin of Laurentian University is aboard for this relaxing sojourn paddling north out of historic Byng Inlet. He developed our ecology programs at the Squall over 20 years ago and has a special way of interpreting the natural history stories of the northern bay. A botanist who has taught alpine and coastal ecology, Gerard also founded the only forensic botany department in all of Canada. That ain’t all! Try asking him about rock formations or cloud patterns or why winds might blow counter-clockwise! It’s like having David Suzuki at your side. Our paddling days will be easy with lots of time for wandering and swimming. Fine meals and signature bay sunsets round out this very special trip.

White Squall is my yardstick for great kayak paddling adventures – and their stores are awesome too. All staff from owners, sales and guides are competent and just plain nice.
