Arrive at the Saint John Airport (YSJ) and take a Red Rock Adventure shuttle to the city of Saint John. Stay at the Hilton Hotel and take time for yourself to relax or explore the city. There’s lots of great restaurants and tons of history for you to discover.
Guests will have breakfast the the Hilton’s York Bistro before heading on an Uptown city tour. Depart for the Village of St. Martins, where you’ll discover the extraordinary Fundy Trail Parkway. Sweeping vistas and a trailside lunch usher you into a night at the beautiful St. Martins Country Inn and dinner at Vaughn’s Restaurant. After dinner, you’ll go through all your gear with your guides, to prepare for the next day’s adventure.
After having breakfast at Vaughn’s Restaurant, head out to Deer Island. From here you will start to make your way by sea kayak through the Fundy Isles Archipelago. Discover the highest tides in the world as you island hop. Land on a private island to have dinner and camp for the night.
Wake up early and have a tent-side breakfast before heading out back onto the water. Keep your eyes open for some of the marine life that called the Fundy Isles home. Porpoise, seals, and the occasional whale can be just as curious about you as you are of them. Another dinner and night on the island means more chance for star gazing in a place with little to no light pollution.
This is your last day on the water. After another island breakfast, paddle back to Deer Island, land, and head to the beautiful town of St. Andrews-by-the-Sea. Check in to the historic Algonquin Hotel before having a group dinner at the bay side Niger Reef Teahouse.
On day 6, you start your day with breakfast at the Algonquin Hotel. After that, you depart to go whale watching in the Bay of Fundy. The whale watching professionals out of St. Andrews rarely disappoint. You may even catch a glimpse of the world’s second largest animal; the Finback Whale, that can reach lengths up to 89.6ft. After landing, you will have time to explore the beautiful nooks and crannies of the town before meeting up for dinner at the Rossmount Inn.
Today you have one last breakfast together at the Algonquin Hotel before you are shuttled to the Saint John Airport and head home.
We had a great outing. The staff is very friendly and professional. Such a beautiful part of the world. Well worth trying. Great adventure!!
