Newfoundland Routes, East

Content. Both Inland and Coastal Routes.
Clockwise sort of the six Subregions.
The coasts and drainage basins (aka watersheds) of Bonavista Bay, Trinity Bay, Conception Bay, east coast of the Avalon Peninsula, Trepassey Bay, St Mary’s Bay (including Holyrood Bay).
Route and Information entries are filed in alphabetical order within each subregion.
Ed note: In deference to Kayak Newfoundland and Labrador, which uses a separate region for the Avalon Peninsula, I separate Avalon Routes (both Inland and Coastal) from others in the East region.

Coastal Routes, East region.

Caution.
Those of us with a background in lake and river paddling, even those comfortable in big water, might reflect on whether we possess the knowledge, equipment and skills necessary to deal with the very different hazards associated with coastal paddling. A course or a guided trip might be a good idea before attempting any of the coastal Routes described in the links given below.
From what I've read, every responsible paddler carries a VHF radio and is well versed in its operation.
