VIPI Lodge is located in one of the best (and unknown!) paddling areas in Cape Breton. The area extends around Janvrin’s Island and Isle Madame. Interesting wildlife, remote Islands, coves and beaches are waiting to be explored. Depending on the wind direction paddlers can go to the south or the north side of the island for their tour and will be in the slipstream and in protected waters. We have rental kayaks, canoes, stand up paddle boards and all the necessary accessories including safety equipment. If you want to paddle only one way, with the wind, we can pick you up with our truck on Isle Madame.
