Half the fun is paddling on tides that rise and fall the height of a 5-story building. The other half is paddling along and sometimes directly through the striking flowerpots and rock formations that hours earlier you might have walked right up to. This unique sea kayaking adventure is neither strenuous nor particular challenging, and therefore a perfect experience for just about everybody’s Bucket List.
Length of Trip : One and a half hours
Cost : Adult: $50, Youth: $40, Family: $170, (plus tax)
Best time to go : June to September
Wheelchair friendly : No
Family friendly : Minimum age is 12 years old, unless the seas are particularly calm and exceptions can be made.

Official Site : Baymount Outdoor Adventures Website
Getting There : From Moncton/Riverview, drive south on Rte. 114 for approximately 45 minutes to "Hopewell Rocks" at Hopewell Cape. If travelling from Fundy National Park, "Hopewell Rocks Park" is about a 45 minute drive north on Rte. 114 (toward Moncton). Arrive at the park entrance at least 60 minutes prior to tour time to allow time to pay park entrance fees and walk to Baymount Adventure’s Kayak Building at the “Lower Site”.
Note from Robin : Bring a change of clothes in case you get wet or muddy. You’ll be using double sea kayaks that are easy to maneuver, and paddling for about 4km in distance. If you haven’t see the Hopewell Rocks at low tide, definitely stick around long enough to walk on the ocean floor.
