My son & I had a great visit exploring St. Martins, the highlight of which was our kayaking experience. Our guide was very friendly & knowledgeable about the area. Our favourite part was going through the waves out at the point, would definitely recommend this outdoor adventure!!!

Treated my sister to sea kayaking for her birthday. We were spoiled by John and Scott to a great afternoon of kayaking, through the caves and along the St Martin shore. Great great value (frankly I feel they could charge more) at $55 and we were out for over 3 hours and supplied with everything needed for the trip. We... More

My family of various ages--6, 7, 34, 40, and 68--took a kayaking / hiking tour with John and his associates. I was a little worried about accommodating the various ages in my group, but John assured me that everything would be catered to our needs. He was right. He provided plenty of guides to help with the paddling and direction... More

A fantastic tour. John and Douglas were knowledgeable, professional and experienced kayakers. All equipment was provided including very stable tandem kayaks, paddles, spray skirts, life jackets, dry bags and even caps (if you wanted) to provide protection from the sun. They first led the group to a calm inlet to practice and get comfortable with basic paddling techniques and turns... More

My boyfriend and I did the kayaking of St. Martin's sea caves and were very disappointed. It was, however, situational I'm sure. The night before we saw that the forecast called for almost 100% chance of rain starting around 11am. I e-mailed to ask if the kayaking was still on for the morning despite this, and he said yes. We... More

For my husband's 75th birthday we took a cruise from Boston to St John NB, and arranged a morning sea kayak trip with River Bay Adventures. John and Josh were an excellent team: lifejackets, kayak skirts and safety instruction were provided, and they made sure we were comfortable in our kayak before setting out. We paddled around the harbor, and... More

Our family (2 adults, 2 children) booked with river bay adventures while on a cruise to New Brunswick. We made our arrangements via email and phone conversations. John was very quick to reply to both our emails and our phone calls. He made the experience of booking very easy and did a good job explaining what we would be doing... More

We had a great time sea kayaking with John and Ken from River Bay Adventures around the St. Martin's sea caves. This group is very knowledgeable and personable and made us feel comfortable and safe the whole time. My husband and I went with our 2 boys ages 6 and 8. The 6 year old had more fun pulling seaweed... More

The morning was misty and overcast and added an eerie charm to the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed sea kayaking with John from Riverbay Kayaking in St. Martin's, New Brunswick and would highly recommend it. It was my husband's and my first time kayaking, so we were a little nervous. But no need to be...the kayaks are quite stable. We were in a two-seater, were given life jackets and a water-proof skirt to put on... More
