Newfoundland: A favorite kayak tripAugust 10th, 2009

Today’s blog entry is submitted by Jane Touchie of Fredericton, New Brunswick, who participated in a multi-day trip in late June and early July. The photos are submitted by fellow kayaker Roxanne Martel.

TOWARD THE ICEBERG!

TOWARD THE ICEBERG!

I am an experienced kayaker, having done many guided and unguided trips in Newfoundland, the Maritimes, and Maine. My recent trip with Seascape Kayak Tours to the Bay of Exploits has to rank among my favorite kayaking experiences.

Here are some of the aspects of the trip that made it wonderful:

The beauty of the natural landscape, bird life, whales and other marine life in Newfoundland, plus witnessing an enormous iceberg roll over.

Excellent guides who placed safety as the first priority and also fostered comradeship, skill learning and team building. They were always asking and in touch with the clients’ desires for what they wanted from the trip, and on a given day we did a lot of paddling or a little based on what we wanted to achieve that day.

The food was excellent.

The friendliness of the Newfoundlanders was amazing. I had difficulty with the airline getting to Newfoundland, and the Seascape staff supported me through the frustrations of my air plane woe-be-gones with customer service that was exemplary.

Finally, the Seascape kayak experience offers something I have never encountered before. A real reverent relation with the sea, land and wildlife that went beyond “leave no trace” camping. We endeavored to connect to the wild place on a spiritual level. We weren’t just paddling, we were being there, in the moment.

We had lots of fun and just enough challenges. Altogether it was a wonderful experience (except my sunburned hands!) It was well worth the fee and I hope to paddle with Seascape again in the future.

New AdventuresAugust 19th, 2008

"Throughout my 74 years I have always tried to find new adventures, and I have looked to Bruce to help me. My last trip to Costa Rica was and will be very memorable. My 18-year-old grandson joined me during the second half of my visit. The way Bruce handled him, I felt that my grandson came back with a knowledge and understanding enjoyed by only a few people of his age. Bruce, though very soft spoken, with tact and diplomacy ensures that everyone is acting responsibly. I would say that Bruce is a credit to the entire kayak travel industry."
