Gouffre River

The Gouffre river was given its name in 1608 by French explorer Samuel Champlain. The river was named after the “gouffre” or whirlpool at the base of Cap aux Corbeaux just downstream from where the river empties into the Saint Lawrence. The whirlpool posed a formidable marine obstacle to sailors and was a source of significant fear for the local seagoing communities. The Gouffre watershed is made up of 185 lakes and 35 tributaries. The river flows southwest for 76.1 kilometers before emptying into the Saint Lawrence river in Baie-Saint-Paul.
