The mouth of the Romaine River: One day adventure between the sea and the river
for beginners, families and experts
Learn, discover and wonder
At the mouth of the beautiful Romaine River, where the river meets the sea, you’ll discover the otherworldly landscape of Romaine Bay, which was shaped by glaciers thousands of years ago.
The bay is sea kayaker’s paradise. The Romaine Bay is the perfect place to try sea kayaking for the first time, even with a young family. It’s shallow depth and narrow mouth means it has small waves and warmer water then the surrounding Gulf of St. Lawrence. And, with two rivers bringing freshwater from the Boreal Forest into the bay, it’s home to a rich ecosystem.
This rare geography is also great if you’re an experienced kayaker looking for a different area to paddle in, or if you just want to take some stunning photos. For intermediate paddlers interesting in pushing their limits, the mouth of the bay has some large standing waves for you to play in relatively safely.
The daylong outing is the perfect length to get away from civilization and experience the bay. You’ll get a sense of the ancient rhythm of the bay and even enjoy a delicious meal cooked on site by your guide.
This six hours adventure gives you enough time to explore the whole bay and its diverse flora and fauna. If the weather is nice, we can even paddle out of the bay and, with some luck, kayak with whales and watch them feed along the cliffs, truly a once in a lifetime experience for most people.
During your adventure you’ll be overwhelmed by the beauty of the bay, see and even swim in the Roman River Falls, watch as Arctic terns dance in the sky above, and simply relax as you settle into the rhythm of this unique, majestic environment.
On clear days and even in foggy weather, this unique site will give you a thousand surprises. We base our route on the wind direction, the level of water in the Bay, and the ability of the group.
