Kayaking expedition along the southwest coast of Newfoundland


Paddle Newfoundland's southwest coast on this exciting kayaking expedition. The rugged shores of Newfoundland have changed little since the first Europeans arrived over five hundred years ago. It juts into the Atlantic off the northeastern tip of North America, where a distinctive geology, biology and cultural history have molded a unique people, with a strong tie to the sea. 

This is a land of contrasts, of the humorous and annoying, the harsh and fulfilling, the tragic and promise. Descriptive communities with labels like Heart’s Content, Dildo, Come by Chance, Blow me Down and Witless Bay, hide along its erratic coastline. It is a welcome breath of fresh air, both figuratively and literally.

During this sea kayaking journey you discover deep fjords with abrupt, barren walls that alternate with the coastal islands to provide a captivating land/seascape. The rugged interior is a mixture of muskeg, glacial ponds and granite outcrops offering splendid hiking opportunities where we will encounter carnivorous plants and the woodland caribou. In the isolated out ports, which cling tenaciously to the exposed bedrock, you glimpse a threatened way of life as fishermen struggle to maintain their livelihood on a declining resource. This is a special expedition along a ruggedly beautiful coastline.

Bay of Exploits tour

Early in the season, huge icebergs from the Arctic ice fields drift along the northern coast of Newfoundland - the world-famous "Iceberg Alley". Humpback and minke whales also arrive and pursue large schools of capelin, and the sea bird colonies are bustling. It is truly an extraordinary sight.

During this trip we will paddle into the outer reaches of Notre Dame Bay, among the windswept islands of the “Bay of Exploits”, and then around the Twillingate archipelago - with its rugged coves and steep cliffs that confront the northern sea. Visited by the Dorset Eskimo over a thousand years ago, these outposts were also the last refuge of the indigenous Beothuk people. With the arrival of the Europeans, thriving fishing communities developed. Today most lay silent - although there remains a lasting, rich, natural and cultural history.

The “Bay of Exploits” sea kayak expedition is suitable for paddlers with some previous experience.
