Sea Kayaking Adventures

Sea KayakingExperience the Bay of Fundy tides by sea kayak. Spend hours exploring the waters as you paddle along unspoiled shoreline, isolated coves, towering cliffs and fascinating sea caves. Observe bald eagles soaring overhead, numerous seabirds and perhaps the occasional seal or harbour porpoise.

Allow local guides to fill you in on the history and geology of the region and explain the tides as you navigate through fishing weirs and soak up the sunshine. Some tours include stops on secluded beaches to provide kayakers with some time for beachcombing or perhaps even a picnic lunch. Instruction is also provided for the inexperienced and a new appreciation of the outdoors is nearly guaranteed.
