NEWFOUNDLAND COASTAL SAFARI CAMP
Fortune Bay Explorer is a
five day adventure
based at the Coastal Safari tent camp. It is offered
the summer and begins every Monday at 9:00am and ends on Friday.
Our 12'x14' canvas camp tents are locally made by United Sail
Works who started out a generation ago as sailmakers for the hundreds
of schooners that sailed the waters of Newfoundland fishing and
transporting freight before the road system was built in the 1960's.
The tents are fixed on wooden platforms with
two comfortable beds in each tent. We provide all meals, linen and
has a light. We also have a
gas heated shower and you can have a shower anytime. In order
minimize the intrusiveness of our camp in this wilderness area we do
use a generator. As a result it is very common to observe caribou,
eagles and other birds and animals near the camp.
On arrival at the camp we give you your towels for the week.
You can select a kayak and paddles and that will be the one you will
use throughout the week. Keep your paddles and lifejackets at your tent.
The waters around the camp are sheltered and provide a safe
kayaking experience for everybody. The more adventurous can venture
further afield but we ask that you let us know your route before your
We have a daily schedule of guided paddling and hiking and
provide a packed lunch.
Many of our guests
also enjoy the chance to go fishing and try their hand at catching
go beachcombing or relax on the beach.
