We had the best day! This was the first time my husband and I had been kayaking with our son. Jim was an incredible guide. He was experienced, prepared, knowledgeable and friendly. The river was beautiful (of course) and it was a highlight of our trip. Thank you Jim!

I am so glad you guys enjoyed the paddle and was flattered to hear your son wants to teach people to kayak when he is older. Thanks for your kind words; it was my pleasure to be your guide. The view from the middle of the Kennebecasis never gets old! Cheers! More

My husband and I caught wind of Jim @ River Bay Adventures through the central info center in St. John the evening before we wanted to go out on the water. We knew it was a long shot to book something legit so last minute but Jim came through and helped us book an amazing trip with him for the... More

I cannot say enough good about the experience we had with River Bay Adventures. Our tour guides, John & Jim, were excellent and I am happy to have met them. Both went out of their way to accommodate my family. They treated us like they had known us forever and really took time with our kids, especially catering to our... More

I booked an outing with River Bay Adventures back in July, and then a week before we were supposed to go, it was cancelled. He said that he would be out of town and he couldn't find a guide to do the tour. I'm glad he gave me some advance notice, but still bummed. Just wanted to put a review... More

Our kayaking adventure could not have been more perfect. The equipment was top notch, our guides informative and friendly. One of our party was timid about kayaking for the first time, and the guide stepped right up changing from a one man to a two man kayak, putting our friend in the front. It created a ten star experience for... More

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
