The tour started at 9am: quite early for a Saturday, but it was nice to be out and about in such fine sunny weather. Once we arrived at the kayaking place our guide suited us up and took us down to the water’s edge to hop in our double kayak.
Along the way, we made a couple of detours. We explored inside a huge sea cave, being careful not to get washed up onto the rocks as the huge ocean swells came in. We also kayaked around some sea stacks, and happened upon a bald eagle who was nesting near by.
After a few rest stops in sheltered coves along the way, we finally made it back to shore. Having worked up an appetite out on the sea we grabbed a quick fish ‘n’ chips before heading back to town. We had been meaning to go sea kayaking for a while, and were not at all disappointed. It was a really amazing experience that we’d recommended to everyone. One of the top things to do in Newfoundland!
And two years ago? Well, we did the same thing! Almost. We also participated in the Doors Open Days festivities, but we went all out exploring the Anglican Cathedral, Central Fire Station, James J. O'Mara Pharmacy Museum, and the Logy Bay-Middle Cove-Outer Cove Museum. Another epic day.
