I went down to the wharf to kill some time waiting for a friend to get off work, and it was a really nice spot to relax for a few hours!

the Econo lodge Miramichi is wihin walking distance to Ritchies Wharf which is a beautiful area to just sit and enjoy the river, and listen to nightly music, and has many shops to enjoy browsing through.

I didn't have my own boat, so went on the MV Max Aitken tour (Capt. Hache) Enjoyed his narrative of the history of the river. You won't be disappointed either!

For anglers, the name "Miramichi" means one thing - Atlantic Salmon Fly Fishing"! For non-anglers and families, the same name can mean canoeing, kayaking, tubing trips and a delightful vacation. My wife Jackie and I visit the Miramichi often (lived in the area for 7 years) and like to stay at Miramichi Country Haven Lodge. Byron Coughlan, the owner, taught... More

We drove the Miramichi scenic route from Miramichi to Fredericton. It is a nice drive and quite wild with a good chance to see some wildlife along the way and enjoy some beautiful views of the Miramichi River and some very old wooden covered bridges. We stopped at the Atlantic Salmon Museum in Doaktown which is roughly at the midpoint... More

My family and I have been tubing several times with Steward's tubing and always had lots of fun. Their staff is very friendly and helpful.

This mighty river is both salt and fresh water and boast some of the best salmon fishing in the area. (Some locals recommend a guide for decent fishing). For a non-fisherman, this river is gorgeous and serene. The combination of history and local contemporary charm make it a sweet spot to meander through, whether solo, couples, or families.

Now that all the pulp mills have been closed for several years, our beautiful river is so clean .. great for swimming, boating or just enjoy the view and great sunsets. There are several lodges where you can enjoy a salmon fishing experience and bass season is open for 15 days the first part of August. Take a river cruise... More
