River Bay Adventures

Erosion causes caves and caves are fun to explore, especially in a kayak or hiking boots – not at the same time! Before you are swallowed up by the cavernous rocks you can soak up coastal vistas and soaring birds while your guide interprets life in a rural community on the Bay of Fundy. You’ll be surprised to learn that the geology of the area played an integral role in determining how folks settled here.

  • River Bay Adventures rents kayaks and rates include delivery to local area.
  • We also offer mobile service and flexible rates for groups and individuals.

Fundy Trail Parkway

Hugging cliff tops above the world’s highest tides experience the Fundy Trail Parkway. Listen… the sound of the waterfalls. Triassic rocks, where the Atlantic Ocean was born! Look… a flower-pot rock. Taste… the salt of the sea. Smell… mossy ground. Touch… the age-old rock outcrop. Here you discover a peaceful, serene calm that feeds the soul. Hike it! Bike it! Drive it! See it!

The Fundy Trail opens up previously unreachable areas of the Bay of Fundy coastline and panoramic views. The 16 km (10 miles) trail begins just outside St. Martins, New Brunswick and is less than an hour’s drive from Saint John or Sussex on Route 111.

  • The Fundy Trail is a wheelchair-friendly coastal access network which includes a low-speed auto parkway with scenic lookouts, a pedestrian/bicycle trail, footpaths to beaches and river estuaries, and an Interpretive Centre.

  • 4 hour guided hikes and fall foliage hikes are also available.

  • Visitors can hike, bicycle, cross-country ski or drive the Fundy Trail, depending on the season.

  • The pedestrian and bicycle trails connect to paths and stairways, across a suspension footbridge, past waterfalls towering 250 m above pristine beaches.

  • Many of the lookouts and observation decks along the low-speed auto route are wheelchair friendly, and all offer spectacular views.

  • Dogs on leashes are welcome on our trails. Bring them into the Interpretive Centre at Big Salmon River for a special treat.

View the ecological diversity of the Bay of Fundy, watching harbour porpoises, fish, mussels, whelks, periwinkles, sea urchins, harbour seals, starfish and much more!

The Irving Nature Park is a 600 acre (243 hectare) site created by J.D. Irving, Limited to help protect an environmentally significant area. This special part of the Fundy coastline, minutes from downtown Saint John, a major urban centre of New Brunswick, is now a place where the public can enjoy and experience the various ecosystems of the Southern New Brunswick coastline.

  • The area nurtures one of the province’s richest marine ecosystems. The area is a traditional staging site for migratory and marine birds that travel between the Arctic and South America. It is a breeding ground for many waterfowl of the Atlantic coastline.

  • Park visitors enjoy the park’s rugged beauty, its trails and lookout points, its boardwalk on the salt marsh with amazing birding opportunities, its picnic sites and its free gas barbecues.
