3-Day Kayaking/Camping all inclusive*
Cost: $595CDN Call for Dates: Late September through Canadian Thanksgiving weekend
New Brunswick is the picture province of Canada - especially in early October when the blue of the ocean and sky meets the reds and rusts of the foliage. With a bright sun and crisp air we set out on the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend for our last tour of the season. Join us in celebrating this magnificent time of year. For three days and two nights we can paddle along the 300 foot cliffs of Grand Manan, visit the crystal cliffs of White Head, camp on a different island each night and scavenge some isolated coves and beaches that are reachable only by water. If camping sounds too cold for you this time of year, we will be happy to arrange B&B accommodation for you instead.

Find a pet rock, pick some periwinkles, race with a seal! Much more than just a summer camp, Adventure High Sea Kayaking will teach and challenge young paddlers to see the natural world and themselves in a new and exciting light.

We feel that it takes a special person to deal with these youngsters and teens, so our staff are specifically chosen with appropriate expertise. Ages: 10-15 years, co-ed. Programs are geared to both beginners and intermediates.
Bring your organized group, team members or business associates for a team building experience that you'll never forget.

A program using a ropes course, adventure challenges, rappelling, kayaking, or cycling will be custom-designed so that members will learn to value and appreciate the diverse skills and talents essential in any effective team. Please call for dates and prices.
