A word from founder Bruce Smith

“Welcome to Seascape Kayak Tours. This company began as an outgrowth of my passion for paddling, outdoor education and sharing special marine environments with others. I love introducing people to wild places and helping them feel comfortable and reach their potential on the water. Whether you choose to join us for a sunset paddle, a day trip or an extended expedition, you will travel with just a few others, in a safe, sensitive and environmentally sound manner.”

Conjuring the True SpiritMarch 4th, 2009

Bruce has a unique way of conjuring the true Spirit of a place, bringing local folk and the environment together in a intimate dance that warmly invites the traveller into an experience that will resonate for a lifetime. From a practical standpoint, it is obvious that Bruce pays a great deal of attention to the details of a trip. Bruce manages experiences with a focus on safety and risk management, which appears to come with an ease gained from years of traveling and living in Costa Rica.

Shared PhilosophiesMarch 4th, 2009

We first paddled with Bruce (Seascape) a few years ago in the Bay of Fundy / New Brunswick and made an instant connection. We trust Bruce and share the same philosophies on sustainable travel, safety, risk, fun and adventure.  We knew that a trip with Bruce would be an experience that would be unique and would encompass people, culture and a love and respect for the natural environment. We experienced all of these things and so much more!

Modify on the GoMarch 4th, 2009

Over the years my family has traveled with Bruce and Seascape from whales to icebergs to crocodiles. The one constant has been Bruce’s uncanny ability to generate local involvement year-after-year, including local people as an integral part of the Seascape family, with them being of as much importance to the trip experience as anything physical or visual. Bruce and Seascape’s ability to modify trips on the go, melding them to clients’ skill, comfort level and interests has also provided us with vastly different trips within the same geographical area. We are usually one of the first groups to explore new areas with Seascape and look forward anxiously to the next opportunity.
