This trip is Level 2, Easy to Moderate. Participants will be picked up at the Saint John Airport the day before the trip begins, greeted by their local guide, and transported to their overnight accommodations at the Saint John Hilton. (Transfer and hotel costs are included in the trip price.)

This is an active trip with easy hikes and walks of 2-4 hours on four of the seven full days and shorter walks on two days. Our sea-kayaking adventure is a gentle one that emphasizes safety and is led by a professional guide; no previous kayaking experience is necessary. On Day 5 we go whale-watching for two and a half hours; participants should bring appropriate medication if motion sickness might be an issue.

What does red Rock Adventure provide on multi-day hiking tours?

Red Rock Adventure has some gear that hikers can rent. Including sleeping bags, mats, and trekking poles.

Do you have gear I can rent or use?

A float suit is a full-body, one-piece insulated garment. It protects the wearer from cold weather and water. It is also designed to offer flotation to anyone who finds theselves in the water.


On warmer days, float suits aren't necessary and we will provide guests with appropriate PFDs.

For the Scenic Coastline Boat Tours, what is a float suit?

We prefer you use our equipment, so we can be assured it is maintained to Paddle Canada standards. Our PFDs are also specifically made for kayaking, so we're sure you'll be comfortable.

I have my own PFD, can I just wear that?

We always use double kayaks that are more stable than single kayaks. While the Bay of Fundy can provide some extreme conditions, we have our guest's safety as a top priority by keeping them informed on the weather. If our Lead Guide(s) say it is too wavy or windy, we work to tell everyone with lots of time in advance, so alternative plans can be made.
