Away on the Bay: Row Boat Experience
See Newfoundland as it is meant to be seen: from the water! For hundreds of years Newfoundlanders have pulled a living from a unforgiving but rich sea. To do this they had to perfect a breed of boats that could handle the heavy work and the formidable North Atlantic. Assembled from the timbers of the boreal forest and built by skilled hands with knowledge passed down from father to son these unique watercraft became central to the cultural identity of Newfoundland. Now you can experience that story yourself. With your guide you will explore the shores of Hare Bay, stop in hidden coves, handline a cod (when in season), have a boil-up on a secluded beach, observe seabirds and marine mammals, try your hand at pulling an oar, and hear the stories of life in Northeastern Newfoundland.
