Canoe Shuttle

The Dumoine River is one of the most beautiful free flowing rivers in the Pontiac region. With its various rapids and its impressive scenery the Dumoine river is very popular for white water canoeing.

Here at the Dumoine Valley Guides we can help you get your trip started with our shuttle services. Tell us at what point on the river you would like to start your trip and we will bring you and your gear to where the adventure begins.

Leave your vehicle with us or have us deliver it to where the river ends.

Our location on the Ottawa River does offer you the option to paddle from the end of the Dumoine River directly to us.

To show our appreciation we are happy to give our customers 1 free river map with our transportation service.

Boat shuttle service:
The Dumoine Valley Guides is very happy to offer a boat shuttle service, crossing the Ottawa River can be a stressful experience and sometime during high winds it can be dangerous. Take the stress away, let us pick you up and safely bring you and your group back to your vehicle. With this service you can leave your vehicles at our lodge (free parking) and you get to enjoy a short relaxing trip on the Ottawa River at the end of your canoe experience. Payment is easy we can accept debit, credit and cash directly from the boat when we pick you up.

$75 for the first trip and $60 per additional trips, maximum of 3 canoes per trip.

Free lodging:
Looking for a place to stay before or after your adventure? We are proud to now offer a one night stay in one of our high quality cottages free of charge (subject to availability).


Customers must register at the Rapides des Joachims ZEC office to help emergency services in the event of an accident or missing person.

The length of shuttle ranges from 3 to 5 hours depending on road conditions and the drop-off location.

Once you have been shuttled to your starting point the customer is fully responsible in the event of an accident and we encourage that each group gets a method of contacting emergency services (satellite phone or emergency GPS device).

Customers are responsible for bringing all the gear and food required for the trip.

Remember to get a fishing permit and a ZEC fishing pass if you intend to fish while on the river.
