I was fortunate enough to fly into YGR during the summer months and still have time to enjoy what the island has to offer.

For those of you that are not familiar, the Iles de la Madeleine are located in the middle of the Gulf of St. Lawrence and approx a 2 hr flight from Montreal. The Islands are in the shape of a half moon and stretch a distance of 65 km. The archipelago comprises about a dozen islands, six of which are interconnected by long, thin, sand dunes.

I generally spend my time hiking the coast and eating lobster, but this time round I had the opportunity to Kayak the Gros Cap and explore the caves and coast line.

I chose to Kayak with Parc De Gros Cap. The Park is a no profit organization that dedicated their time and money to preserving the Gros Cap. It also offers smaller tour groups (3 kayakers not 18) and top of the line newer Sea Kayaks.

Enjoy the photos
