We would like to share with you our dramatic coastline with cliffs plunging to the Bay, sea caves and hidden beaches swallowed twice daily by the cycle of the tides - the highest in the world. This is the Bay of Fundy - a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. All sea kayak tours meet at our historic 160 year old kayaking centre, located on the Alma estuary. Just across the estuary is Fundy National Park. For an unique Atlantic Canada sea kayaking experience, join us on one of our adventures - kayak the world's highest tides, contemplate the power of a well placed Moon.

The owners were very friendly. Brandon and Rachel were our guides and we felt that we were hanging out with friends. We definitely recommend to book your next kayaking experience with Fresh Air Adventure. 😁 Ray & Charaine xoxo

My husband and I did the Matthew's Head tour. The guides were amazing, very knowledgeable, and great with everyone. To experienced Kayakers: just because you are experienced doesn't mean everyone is. We had two people who thought it would be great to race down the coast forcing the entire group to go much faster than was comfortable for some. There was a family of four with two younger people plus other couples who weren't experienced. The guides did their best and were amazing throughout, but had to take turns forging ahead to tell the fast couple to slow down and wait for the group. As well we unable to slow or stop as much as we would have liked to be able to enjoy some of the breathtaking scenery. If you are an experienced kayaker and don't want to be held back, don't join a tour that clearly states it is for beginner to intermediate kayakers. The stop on the beach was lovely, the snack was perfect and the guides were wonderfully knowledgeable, and did a great job of explaining the various reasons that combine to make the wonderful high tides in the area. My reason for four stars instead of five isn't because of the inconsiderate fast kayakers, as I thought the guides did a fabulous job of trying to make sure everyone enjoyed their trip and made the best of a tough situation. And in the end the trip was still very enjoyable. The score is because when we signed up, it did not state anywhere that it would be tandem, and we were actually looking to kayak individually. The website and tour descriptions should be updated to reflect that tandem kayaks are used so people are aware of what they are signing up for.

We did the half day tour in the morning with our kids (ages 7 and 11). The paddle out was challenging into the wind. One of the guides kindly clipped our kayak to hers and helped us. The staff were amazing. So friendly and kind. The snack of sticky buns from Kelly’s Bakery was a nice treat. The paddle back was much easier. We really enjoyed ourselves. The gear provided was in excellent condition and nicely maintained. Thanks for a great adventure!

Thanks so much for the kind review. Those sticky buns are delicious! We try not to eat too many of them in the summer (though kayaking helps keep some of the delicious calories at bay). We are really happy you had a good time.

We had a great time on the 1/2 day sea kayak to Christopher's Head. The team at FreshAir was very upfront about how it might be hard for us (kids age 8 and 12) because of the wind that happens in the afternoon. They gave us a ton of information, kept in touch about the weather and let us make our own decision about whether to go or not. It was definitely a challenge for each of the adults to paddle the kayak, but we're so glad we did! We got to experience Fundy Bay and the tides first hand. The guides were excellent. They stayed with us, kept up conversation and encouragement and offered a lot of information about the area. Both my kids had a great time and felt hugely accomplished when we were done!

My girlfriend and I are not quite familiar with sea kayaking. We booked the 1/2 day tour starting at 9.am. To our surprise we were only 6 people (including our guide Isaac). The three other guests were more experienced but still seemed to have a good time! We got some instructions and the guides were professionals at all times - we never felt unsafe, we could ask questions. We learnt a lot!! The tour was great fun with the other guests and our guide. It was amazing to experience the tide and the Bay of Fundy. If you want to learn something about kayaking, the region and the people go to freshAir. Especially if you want to kayak in a small group!! :-) We HIGHLY recommend this company!
