We recently had the opportunity to experience a kayaking adventure in Downtown CBS with Ocean Quest! We were met at 9am by our tour guide Dan and he told us everything we needed to know about safely operating a kayak (Thanks Dan!) In groups of 2, we launched our kayaks from Sunset Key Marina right here in Downtown CBS. It was a chilly morning but the experience was worth it.


Ocean Quest offers various activities out of Conception Bay including the 3 Hour Coastline Paddle. We had never been kayaking before but we were confident we would catch on. With lots of nervous laughter, we managed to launch our kayak and began our adventure as we followed the shoreline at our own pace in our tandem boat.

Dan shared some fun facts about the area with each group as we paddled along the coastline. Turns out we were way better at kayaking than we thought we would be! It was fun to just stop and enjoy the scenery. We even watched some of the breakwater repairs being done at the Royal Newfoundland Yacht Club.

Ocean Quest offers lots of other opportunities to get out and enjoy some time on the water – check these out:


Book a Private Charter out of Conception Bay and enjoy 3 hours on the water. These make great outings for a family get together or for a team building event with colleagues. You can bring your own beverages and food to have a cook-up or Ocean Quest also has catering options available.


John told us that they’ve seen minke whales, some humpbacks, dolphins, tuna fish, and plenty of eagles on these charters!
Looking to explore? How about visiting some sea caves in a kayak?
