The summer paddling season is here!

The 2012-2013 Antarctic season has come and gone, with many good times had on ice. Kevin returned once again to share his love for paddling the southern ocean. Ryan also traveled to Antarctica this past winter to guide sea kayak trips off the fly-in cruise packages. You didn’t even need to brave the Drake Passage to join him for some of the most fantastic kayaking around. We also had the opportunity to work with a new wellness guide down south, and recruit her as an assistant kayaking guide for the summer season on Grand-Manan. It wasn’t too difficult to convince Sarah to take a break from the summer heat of her home, Montreal. Sarah came for a canoe trip around the islands of Grand-Manan on her vacation last year, so she was eager to come back for more Fundy fun.

The 2013 summer season has been building steadily. When we’ve been really busy with kayak trips, we’ve been lucky to be able to depend on Susan and Linda’s brother Perry for an extra hand. Their knowledge and enthusiasm is always a treat to have along for the trip. Mark our long-time guide, has also been back this summer help out. You always learn something new paddling with Mark, who’s been with us for 20 Years now!

Our newest venture has been running the Compass Rose Heritage Inn, which has kept us very, very, very busy! Linda has been serving delicious continental breakfasts to guests every morning in the beautiful dinning room. You don’t have to stay at the Compass Rose to enjoy a meal with fabulous ocean views either. We’re serving fresh lobster dinners every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, at 5:30 and 7:30. Dinner begins with a homemade soup, and the lobster comes with three sides – so make sure you bring your appetite! Linda is enjoying serving, and her son is wowing customers with his excellent waitering.

We still have availability at Nature’s Window and the Post-Office this summer, if you’re interested in cabin rentals.  The stunning views of the western cliffs, and Seal Cove from each of the cottages respectively continue to keep our guests endlessly entertained. Of course there are entertainment systems in each unit, but the Bay of Fundy is pretty hard to beat.
