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

paddle-07-2013
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


Wow… A Kayak – Camping Trip with Seascape Kayak ToursSeptember 16th, 2012

Hi Bruce,

Thanks so much for the incredible 2 day kayak trip from Deer Island. We were amazed by all the untouched natural beauty we saw. Our kayak trip was a perfect ending to a 10 day vacation starting in St Martins. From hiking along the coast on the Fundy Trail Parkway, to kayaking with seals, whales and porpoises, to camping on a remote beach our visit was amazing. We chose to come to New Brunswick because it is one of the last undeveloped areas along the eastern coast.  We were not disappointed.  You have a piece of paradise in New Brunswick. We plan to tell our friends and family in the United States about the area and to return as soon as we can. Your expertise and knowledge of the area made the experience remarkable. We learned so much about the Bay of Fundy, the people who live and work in the area and about preserving the environment.

Thanks again,

Laurie and Marjie

Connections – Seascape has always been about people making connections with each other and to the special places which we explore. Earlier this season I spent several weeks on the island getting ready for the paddling season in Canada.

And we have a new greeter at Seascape Kayak Tours…

Tayra the wonder dog.

Jacques Blais, a former Seascape guide arrived with a cousin to go for a paddle in outrigger canoes, which he races in Hawaii… Strange boats but a good visit with Monsieur Blais… On the same day Andrea Ednie, her husband Chad and son Owen arrived to spend some time. It had been over three years since we had connected… Chad and Andrea connected while working for Seascape, hopefully, we can count on Owen in the future.

Andrea and family have been running the operation in Canada with Guy Quinn while I have been guiding a series of trips in Costa Rica…

The guide training program flowed nicely with a number of paddlers making their first visit to our base on Deer Island… Ebb and Flow, our kayak and yoga program was operated as an unplugged program. The weekend was a great success with friends reconnecting, finding flow, community and light.

Looking forward to Espiritu Del Mar (Kayoga – Costa Rica, January 4-12, 2013 )

A mysterious paddle among the weirs around the Bay of Fundy

Michel and Denise friends from Montreal, who had paddled with us in both Newfoundland and Costa Rica, spent a week on Deer Island exploring the Bay of Fundy… Peter, a friend who originally participated on a coast-to-coast trip in Costa Rica and who is now living in the southern zone of the country is assisting with trips in Costa Rica. I still enjoy working with groups of older people who want to try ocean kayaking for the first time… last week we had a woman in her seventies paddle in a single for the duration of the trip… inspirational… living life to the fullest….

During my first week in Costa Rica I took a couple from Tambor Tropical for a half-day trip from Reserva Curu. It was a wonderful experience… wildlife, paddling conditions and personal connections… On the way back to Tambor we enjoyed an authentic lunch or casado with refrescos… a perfect opportunity to share with local people. When we arrived back at the hotel Josh and Jessica invited me to participate in their beachfront wedding ceremony… connections for a lifetime.

Seascape is a business, however, it is also a community of people who come together to share experiences… People come and go but it is nice to know that our locations in Canada and Costa Rica provide our community with special places to return to …

Let the connections flow….

Happy summer …. Pura Vida
