About new wave expeditions

Only 35 minutes away from downtown Quebec City, New Wave Expeditions is THE outdoor location to live an unforgettable experience. We are located on the shores of the Jacques Cartier River, right at the end of the famous Tewkesbury rapids. With packages to please everyone, your rafting adventure will certainly be a highlight of your summer!

After long months of preparation that ended during the summer of 2008, business partners put together their passions and dreams to finally bring you a modern rafting formula: New Wave Expeditions. Annie Bergevin, member of the Canadian women white water rafting team and Guy Bergevin, a devoted father and well known figure in the local business circle, will be hosting your next outing on the River. In 2009, Julie Bergevin joined the team of associates to meet new challenges to come.

Over the years, we have followed the evolution of white water rafting here and abroad. Members of our teams have visited many different companies all over North America, South America, Europe, Central America and even South Korea. Their observations come down to these three words: New Wave Expeditions. Our mission is simple: Sharing our passion for white water rafting, by bringing forward our quality packages and by turning moments into memories for our clients.


Since the opening of the company, we have finished the construction of our ultramodern building, right at the takeout of our rafting section, with a superb terrace overlooking the river. In addition, we have purchased a fleet of brand new 14’ and 16’ rafts. Our equipment is clean and has just come from the manufacturer for your safety, comfort and enjoyment. New Wave Expeditions has invested more than half a million in these projects.

Safety and fun above all else

Our primary concern is to ensure your enjoyment and safety at all times during your experience. From the choice of package that suits you best to the state of our equipment, each decision is made to make you live an unforgettable moment, while honouring our safety mission.

Our guides are hired based on their experience, their professionalism, their maturity as well as their capacity to share their passion for white water. All our guides receive a rigorous training each year to ensure your safety at all times on the river for the benefit of your experience. Our guides take their responsibilities seriously and the river manager ensures that their trainings are up to date every year. Each guide is certified in white water rescue and first aid/CPR.

So, are you ready to join us and experience an incredible rafting adventure?
