Osprey Adventures

Osprey Adventures is the dream of Rafe Hooper who has spent his life exploring the Kennebecasis River system. His vision is to share this wonderful rich ecosystem with you.

Explore the Kennebecasis marshlands and enjoy a variety of wildlife and flora. We have a number or canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards to allow you to experience this amazing area. Enjoy a solitary paddle or engage one of our expert guides to give you a comprehensive histroy of the area and describe the diversity of life that exists in the marshlands.

“I have paddled the Kennebecasis River system for the past 40 years. In my opinion we that the best kept secret in New Brunswick. The river is tidal and the freshwater marsh is one of the largest and most diverse of its kind. The abundant wildlife, diverse water fowl population and various birds of prey make this river system a fascinating place to explore”

Maritime DayTripping

As you search for the next foothold on 554 million year old lava rock belayed to a trained guide looking to reach the top of your first or millionth rock-climbing experience, pause, look back and source the starting point of the next interpretive hike on your list. A little hint — this could easily become your snowshoe path after the first snowfall too!

Located at Rockwood Park, in the heart of Saint John, New Brunswick in Atlantic Canada, we’re your year-round headquarters for all things adventurous.

Explore over 26 kilometres of trails for nordic walking, mountain biking, rollerblading, hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Search for buried treasure using a GPS device. Learn to rock climb. Head out for a row in a canoe or kayak or navigate the Lily Lake in a pedal boat. Whether you’re looking for a challenging adventure or a relaxing outing, we’ll provide the equipment and expertise to make your day trip an exciting one.

We are located next to Lily’s Casual Lakeside Dining where you can enjoy a Stonehammer Geopark menu, partake in our Boathouse Buffet during the summer (lobster roll, pasta salad — full menu on request).
