This 7 day kayak trip in July was remarkable in every way. Paul and Joanne's hospitality, the outstanding guides, the great food and the marvellous adventures. It was so much fun!!! The kayaking, the camping, the hiking and the night in a lighthouse - all of it special. This is my second trip with Adventures Newfoundland - and I look forward to a third.

Paul and Joanne were amazing hosts! Paul picked us up at Lawrence Harbour and took us out to the Exploits Islands on his boat. The ride out was very beautiful through the Bay of Exploits. Paul took us kayaking around the Exploits Is where we were delighted to find so many restored homes. It was special to see a former isolated outport being revived as a summer destination. After a couple of hours kayaking we stopped and picked mussels. We enjoyed them as an appetizer before a delicious locally sourced home-cooked meal. Both Joanne and Paul were keen to ensure that we were able to see and do all that we wanted to while on the islands. We got up early and enjoyed a hike out to see the restored lighthouse before we left. There’s lots to see and do and we wish we had planned to stay longer.

This really was the most amazing trip - the kayaking was superb; food delicious and copious; guides fun and very knowledgeable- all round a fantastic experience. Huge thanks to Paul and Joanne for logistics and hosting us in their self-built home and their lighthouse! Such a treat and would highly recommend.

I did a 7-day kayaking trip with Adventures Newfoundland and it was absolutely incredible! The two guides were very knowledgeable and good fun. We were very well fed and looked after. Getting to stay the night in a lighthouse was also very exciting! This was my 5th multi-day kayak trip and definitely my favourite. It was also one of the highlights of my year in Canada (I'm from the UK). Thank you so much for such a wonderful trip - I hope to be back one day!

We had an amazing June day with Paul and Joanne on Exploits Island. We were 2 rookie kayakers in our 60s. Paul had the patience to teach us to kayak and make our day an adventure in and around the water. The lunch made by Joanne was wonderful - we have reminisced often about the smoked capelin and date squares. We were reminded of the history of Exploits Island that Paul shared with us when visiting the Rooms in St. John's. Thank-you for a highlight of our visit to Newfoundland!

We were lucky to spend three days with Adventures Newfoundland. From my first email exchange with Paul, I knew we'd be in the right hands. Things were super organized and thought-out... yet also flexible and not over-programmed. It was an ideal customized experience, tailored to our abilities, curiosities, preferences... and of course, the weather! We kayaked, hiked, fished, relaxed, enjoyed delicious meals, and soaked up fascinating Newfoundland information and tales, all while surrounded by the incomparable peace and beauty of Exploits Island.

I can't recommend Adventures Newfoundland enough, especially for people looking for travel that isn't touristy and for fun challenges followed by cozy comfort.

You would absolutely love this guide . Paul Langdon and his wife tailored our kayaking trip to our own needs and allowed us to take a few detours we wanted to go to based on such a wonderful weather day and water conditions. The picnic lunch was delicious as well as a handmade dessert that was mouth watering. The local stories and folklore as well as historical facts made this trip educational as well. Thank you for the highlight of our Newfoundland visit:)

It took me almost 3 years to write this review(despite saying May 2021)... the reason being, I've finally come to terms that our magical trip to Newfoundland, kayaking around Exploits with Paul and Jason, supported by momma Jo, has come to an end.

We did a 3 night tour with Adventures Newfoundland and it was incredible, we're still blown away. Paul, or as someone else has stated, the Daniel Craig of Botwood, is amazing!!! His experience, passion and kindness is what we cherished the most during our trip. Don't get me wrong, the scenery, icebergs and food are spectacular, but Paul and momma Jo are what calls us to return.

Looking down the road, we hope to return for a longer stay where we'll be able to enjoy more adventures in Newfoundland with Adventures Newfoundland.

Paul is the Daniel Craig of Botwood!
Somehow he combines his full time job as a 00 with setting up land dwellers with ocean know how! You've never heard the Sea State explained so calmly before. Magical Place, Expert Hands.

Our family spent a week or so kayaking in the beautiful Exploits Islands. We rented amazing, high-quality sea kayaks from Paul Langdon. Paul also provided training and wit and wisdom. This is a remarkable part of the world and I recommend people visit. Paul will make sure you have what you need to visit safely and you won't miss anything. We saw whales and had a memorable time.
