What To Bring

Suggested Clothing

Typically you just need to dress for the air temperature when you paddle on Bonne Bay. We provide a PFD and a spray skirt to keep you dry, however your paddle technique is how you keep dry! During summer the water temperatures in Bonne Bay can reach 17-19°C (63-66°F)…actually quite pleasant.

  • Sun hat with a wide brim
  • Fleece sweater – if the air is cool a light fleece is best since your PFD provides warmth
  • Hiking shorts  are generally fine since your legs are below the deck of the kayak
  • Sneakers or sandals – we can get you launched without getting your feet wet
  • Rain  jacket – if it’s misty or overcast. When we get rain associated with wind we cancel.
  • Sunglasses
  • Sun block
  • Medications (medications that would not be part of our standard first aid kit)
  • Water bottle…we do sell bottled water onsite if you need it

Optional Gear & Clothing

  • Camera, film/card & batteries
  • Binoculars
  • Dry bags/boxes – we do have a selection available if you need one
  • Treats – if you think that you’ll need a snack

Please do not hesitate to call our office if you have questions pertaining to clothing – the right clothing will add to the enjoyment of your kayaking adventure!
