Paddling to superior falls on Montreal River

“We wanted to take a minute and thank Whitecap Kayak for an amazing trip last week to Superior Falls. We were in the area on vacation with our four children, and met up with some other family members. Together we had eight children, eight and under and six adults. It was a rainy, cool day and admittedly we were a bit nervous about how things would play out. As soon as we met Steven, Abby and Josh, all our concerns were gone. They were just fantastic. Their ability to balance professionalism with fun, warmth and kindness was impressive. Our kids could not stop talking about their new friends, and their calm, thoughtful ways were touching. What could have been a disastrous cold, wet day, was transformed into an adventure to them. They loved kayaking and especially loved their picnic under the trees. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this such a special trip. We are eager for our next trip already!”
