Phone: 506 833-2231

We take your safety very seriously. We go to great lengths to manage the hazards inherent in water and land activities, but these risks cannot be completely eliminated. We expect guests to be active players in managing their own safety. We expect guests to follow their guides’ direction at all times.

A briefing at the start of every activity lays out expectations regarding safety. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and regulations, not all of our trips are available. 

 

We will continue with day adventure trips, educational courses, cafe operations, some culinary experiences, and modified multi-day adventures.

Water FAQs

Is it wavy/dangerous/scary when kayaking?


We always use double kayaks that are more stable than single kayaks. While the Bay of Fundy can provide some extreme conditions, we ensure our guest's safety 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.




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


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.




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


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.
