Kayaking and Canoeing

Kayaking and Canoeing

Saint John and its surrounding area offers a wide variety of water adventure opportunities. Paddle an historic river with a day trip on the St. John, Kennebecasis or Hammond River, and see covered bridges, charming communities, and shorelines teeming with gentle wildlife.  Or opt for an ocean paddle, braving the Bay of Fundy waves, ducking into the sea caves at St. Martins, and taking in the scenery. Kayaking is a popular New Brunswick sport – with opportunities available for everyone from novice paddlers interested in exploring the riverside shoreline, to experts ready to shoot the Reversing Rapids at full churn. You can bring your own equipment and put in at one of our many public beaches, or you can sign up for a guided kayak tour – complete with equipment, training and everything else you’ll need. Guided tours are provided by:

Land acknowledgement

The Saint John Region is situated on the traditional and unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik, Mi’Kmaq, and Peskotomuhkati Nations. This territory is covered by Peace and Friendship Treaties signed with the British Crown in the 1700s. The treaties did not surrender the territory and resources, but recognized Wolastoqiyik, Mi’Kmaq, and Peskotomuhkati title, and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.

Envision Saint John: The Regional Growth Agency pays respect to the elders, past and present, and descendants of this land, and is committed to moving forward in the spirit of truth, collaboration, and reconciliation.
