Our Core Values

“Was an amazing week – due to both the Baffin area and to the great staff team and leadership – thanks very much! I hope your following weeks went as well as our week did.”

Bill and Bobbi P.

We are all smiles up the shore. Come see what it’s all about this weekend! ...

Today is going to be GORGEOUS. What are your plans?⁠
We had two spots open up for our afternoon tour, get 'em while they're hot!⁠

We hope you had a great day! 🎉🎊🕺🏻

Tale of a lost GoPro.

We lost our GoPro on a team paddle, and thought it was gone forever. A few days later, a local fisherman who was out on his boat somehow saw it and scooped it up off the ocean floor. He very kindly tracked us down to return it! This is how happy we were to be reunited.

We love this community! Kindness is contagious, pay it forward 🙌🏻

The summer solstice a few weeks ago marked the longest night of the year, and with that, we are kicking high gear into summer!

Although the days are technically getting shorter now, there is lots of time to enjoy these stunning sunsets over the harbour. Here’s to long summer nights and views like these.

*two spots left for this Friday night’s sunset tour!

On your way through, take your time to explore, beachcomb, or hike one of the many access points to the East Coast Trail. You can even stop in for a scoff at the Captain's Table or Riverside Restaurant and Lounge!⁠

The Irish Loop is 312km of beautiful scenery along the tip of the Avalon Peninsula. There's bound to be a place or two you'd like to stop and take in the scenery.⁠

What's in a name?⁠

This is the little dude behind the inspiration for A Wilder Experience.⁠ Isn't he sweet?⁠

Father's Day is a day to celebrate the ones we love, the ones we've lost, and to send love to the ones who might have a difficult time on this day. We hope you have beautiful day with your family, however you choose to celebrate! <3⁠

Hello! My name is Laura, and I’m super excited to join the AWE team this summer to share my love for the outdoors and get folks outside! I moved here from BC recently, but have always loved visiting and exploring the nooks and crannies of Newfoundland.

When I’m not exploring and getting lost around this beautiful island, I am writing, reading, and spending time with my two beloved pooches (who are never far behind). Looking forward to a beautiful season!

Hello Instagram, you may have seen my face on here already, or seen my name at the bottom of emails, but one thing is for sure, this Summer you'll be seeing me on the water a lot more! I've been the operations manager at AWE since the beginning of 2020 and have LOVED IT, but I have been awarded the opportunity to go back to get my masters degree so I am stepping down and handing the reigns over to another (you'll meet them soon!). I am excited to exercise my skills as a guide and show y'all our beautiful home of Cape Broyle 🧡. Fun facts about me: on my days off I like to climb rocks and help at my parents cabin, when it get chilly outside I knit things and make soup, and when I'm not guiding I'm teaching First Aid!
