Kayaking in Newfoundland is incredible in spite, or perhaps because of the weather. In any given year paddlers in Newfoundland will paddle with or around the normal things we almost take for granted - ice flows, caves, arches, seals, bears, ice bergs, whales, lots and lots of whales, walrus, eagles, cormorant, all flavours of gull, harlequin duck, puffin, turr, sunfish, giant leather back turtle on occasion and the list goes on. Where else or what other sport can claim this?
