Immerse yourself in one of the richest marine ecosystems in the world – right here at Seascape’s home base on Deer Island, the starting point for most of our summer trips. Paddling out from our protected harbour, you’re sure to see bald eagles, harbour seals, harbour porpoise and whales. This area, known as a world-class biodiversity hotspot, allows you to experience the ebb and flow of the tremendous Bay of Fundy tides and to enjoy the rugged coastline, secluded islands, abundant marine life, lighthouses and quaint fishing villages.
Seascape’s full-day trips are designed to expose paddlers of any experience level to the biodiversity of the Bay of Fundy’s unique ocean ecosystem. Any of Seascape’s trips can be customized to fit your schedule, paddling experience level and interest or focus, such as photography or birdwatching.
Private trips are available and full-day lunch menus can be customized to suit your interests with advance notice, including gourmet lunch with wine. Trip price includes orientation to sea-kayaking safety, and a guide with years of experience (one guide per 4-5 people) and wilderness Emergency-First-Aid certification. Price also includes a gourmet lunch, state-of-the-art kayaks, kayak equipment such as paddles and PFDs (personal floatation devices) and emergency/safety gear.
