There are a number of great whitewater rescue training sites around Saguenay that we will choose from depending on water levels. We’ll start at our meeting location with some on-land training. We’ll then carpool to our first river site. For the rest of the course, the instructor will let you know about meeting locations depending on water levels.


There are a variety of accommodation options for this course including hotels, camping, and hostels in Saguenay. You can also find places to stay through Airbnb.

Most students travelling from other regions arrive on-site or in Saguenay in the late afternoon or evening the day before their course starts. Most plan to return home the evening that the course ends.
