Spring?

Spring has arrived early to Alma and Fundy National Part. With daily temperatures of + 4 or more, the Bay looks very inviting for kayak enthusists. Our official opening date is May 15. Until then, slowly checking off the many details on my start-up list. Looking forward to the start of our 2010 season.

Until next time.

Season's Greetings

Well it is Christmas - or nearly so. The temperature is finally staying below zero, there is snow on the ground and ice patches are developing on the fringes of the Bay. The lobster season in Alma is over. We, at FreshAir Adventure, wish everyone a safe and healthy holiday season. And speaking of seasons - we are only 149 days from the start of our new season on May 15th.

Merry Christmas.

End of Season

It is hard to believe that the 2009 season is now over. With school groups and visitors from around the world, this has been one of our best seasons yet. But now it is tme to wash up kayaks, store them for the winter, drain pipes in our kayaking centre and do other preparations to ensure an orderly beginning to the 2010 season. Speaking of which - we will be opening on May 15th.

So thank you to everyone who visited us this summer and help make it a great season. We look forward to paddling with you in 2010.

Until next time.

In full swing with school groups, visitors from away and New Brunswickers wanting an early start to their spring. A point of interest on our tours is a pair of eagles that have chosen to set up residence in a tree at shore's edge. We will be treated to daily views as they raise their family over the summer.

The image above shows a school group rounding the point at Herring Cove.
