Percé Rock

Percé Rock (pronounced "Percy"), with an opening approximately 50 feet high and 60 feet wide, stands at the eastern tip of Quebec's Gaspé Peninsula — a final sentry at the end of the Appalachian Mountain range. For four hours or so at low tide, Percé Rock can be reached on foot via a wide spit that connects it with the mainland. Sea kayaking is popular here, and at high tide you may paddle right through the arch. For more information, see the article by Rick Bolger in the April 2000 issue of SPAN, which is reprinted on his web page. Photo by Rick Bolger.
