Bay of Fundy paddle with Seascape Kayak ToursJuly 25th, 2013

This is THE not to be missed tour, for experienced and novice paddlers alike.  We spent the day paddling around the islands just off Deer Island, viewing the ever changing panorama, minke whales, bald eagles, harbor porpoises, and grey seals.  Our guides soon became friends as they taught us about the salmon farms, lobster pounds (live storage), and fishing weirs still used today since being developed by the native Indians.  They took us to a quiet cove and served up a great lunch of smoke salmon (not lox), cheese, apples, humus, etc. I want to emphasize that experienced paddlers need to be introduced to Fundy paddling with a guide because the tidal currents are like nowhere else, and the islands that had been your reference at low tide will disappear at high tide.  Safety is a top priority for the Seascape team.  We highly recommend Seascape. – Richard & Lisa Timm, Cornwall, New York

A Wonderful Marine Mammals Weekend with Seascape Kayak ToursSeptember 16th, 2012

Bruce! Thanks again for the wonderful trip this past weekend! I’m going to try my best to put into words how I feel about the experience, but words seem inadequate to describe the impact of being surrounded by such magnificence!

Once you launch your kayak into the Bay, you leave behind the hustle and bustle of the workaday world, and all the man made deadlines and priorities and enter another realm. A realm of peace and quiet where wild animals live out their lives separate from ours. Suddenly you gain a small measure of perspective…the chaos of man’s life on earth is not all there is. We are not the centre of the universe, nor should we be! As you paddle slowly and quietly out among the Fundy Isles, you open your eyes to the wonder of the tides and the whales, porpoise, seals, bald eagles, myriad seabirds, and plant life that thrive in this ecosystem. It seems incredible that you could live your day-to-day life in the city mostly oblivious to this beauty!

I have gone sea kayaking elsewhere in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Quebec, but as you know, I keep returning to your company on Deer Island. I have not seen anywhere near the diversity or abundance of marine wildlife in the other locations! You share your extensive knowledge of the area, and the environment and inspire me to learn more and to do my part to advocate for action to protect this extremely special and fragile ecosystem. I rave about my experiences paddling with Seascape to any and all who will listen, in the hopes that they too will go out on the water, right in their own ‘backyard’, to have their eyes opened to all that lives there and the vital importance of respecting this habitat. As we discussed, finding ways to bring more children and youth out on the water should continue to be a priority. If they are able to experience this wonder, and to begin to understand the impact our actions are having on the environment, surely some of them will be inspired to live their lives differently.

Sitting at water level in a kayak, listening and watching as whales surface nearby, as pods of porpoise feed, as seals pop up to curiously observe you while a bald eagle soars overhead, changes something deep inside you. It is extraordinary and we need to preserve it! Thank you so much for making it possible for self absorbed city dwellers to have this experience!

Til next time,

Perfect Sunset trip for Facebook winnerAugust 24th, 2010

As the Facebook winner of the Sunset Trip for Two Kayak Adventure from Deer Island, I feel so lucky to have been part of the contest – and then to win, was just wonderful.

My husband and I took our trip on Friday, July 30th. The day was perfect for kayaking with minimal winds, sunny and warm. Bruce and Katinka prepared our group for the adventure with paddling instruction, basic rules for sea kayaking and a look at the maps of our various points of interest. We were honored to have the company of porpoises, several seals and sea birds and a family of eagles. We enjoyed a light snack served on the beach and got to meet and talk to our co-paddlers. Bruce and Katinka were able to answer any questions thrown at them and were very informative of the nature and environment in and around the Bay of Fundy. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend Seascape Kayak Tours to everyone. We are talking about a potential trip to Costa Rica with Seascape to explore the waterways there….Thank you so much for this unique opportunity. We had a lovely time!
