I arranged for a day of kayaking in Saint John and River Bay Adventures showed us an EXCELLENT day in port. Kayaking was great and John proved to be a gracious paddling host. We spent the day exploring the lost history of Partridge Island in the Bay of Fundy. An abandoned site of some complex Canadian history, the Island provided... More

Being first time kayakers, John got us out and paddling in no time. The day and scenery were stunning, and he filled us in on all the history and geography of the area. The kippers and cookies during the break were a treat. This is such a better way to go than with the organized cruise excursions. Highly Recommended! Thanks... More

I requested a private tour for just the two of us, wanting to avoid the... More

Neither rain nor sleet nor heat nor gloom... Alright, Jim is not a mailman but he did deliver a great time for my three sons on a cold (62 degrees) and rainy day in early July (the 2nd). The cruise from NY was wonderful but a cold front arrived in Canada at the same time as we did. Jim offered... More

My family and I (2 adults, 2 children ages 6&8) sailed to Canada on a cruise and we really wanted to try something we have never tried before. The cruise was only offering kayaking excursions for ages 10 and up. So I searched the internet and I found River Bay Adventures on a website for Saint John New Brunswick attractions.... More

This was an awesome and fun excursion! The guides were great and very informative about the river system and islands that we visited. We had teenagers, adults and seniors in our group (most had never kayaked before) and each and every one of us had such a wonderful experience! I would highly recommend taking advantage of seeing the beautiful and... More

Right from the initial phone call to the hand shake good bye, our guide John Kelly made us feel welcome with his easy going nature and great sense of humor. We did the St Martins tour and it was beautiful! John and Dan Coates explained everything that we would need to know for a safe trip and their knowledge of... More

We paddled from Tucker park beach around several islands in the Saint John river. Jim, our guide was very accommodating. He let us set the paddling pace and gave us time to explore one of the islands at our leisure. We also enjoyed a light snack including local delicacies of dulce and herring. It was such a laid back ,... More

Vi were a group of 10 with average skills in kayaking. From start to finish we were very well looked after. We had kids in our group and they had the possibility to use single kayaks in the end of the tour. On our break on a great little island we were given home made snacks and Offered different kind...

It was indeed a beautiful day. So glad the kids got to paddle the singles on their own, and take part in the "mock rescue" ; hanging on to the bow and stern of my kayak. It was a blast! Cheers, Jim More
