Newfoundland - Trinity Bay
Rated #1 in 2011 by National Geographic’s Traveler magazine of the world's great coastlines for sustainability and authenticity, a journey to the Avalon Peninsula is like going back in time. It’s close-knit communities; strong local culture and unspoiled scenery provide a unique insight into an earlier era. During this tour we will depart from the historic fishing town of Trinity and paddle up the rugged and isolated western coast of Trinity Bay. Our trip ends at the tip of the peninsula where the imposing light station of Bonavista looks out upon the Labrador Sea where John Cabot sailed in 1497 and laid claim to the region for the English.
This trip is run in cooperation with our friends at Coastal Adventures. If the timing of this trip isn't quite right for you, check out our other Newfoundland sea kayaking trips to the Southwest Coast and Notre Dame Bay! All of our Newfoundland kayak expeditions are suitable for those with previous sea kayaking experience. Novices should consider our Georgian Bay Getaway or our new Georgian Bay Bayfield to Britt trips.
