In Miramichi it all starts with the water – a deep connection pushed along by currents of history. Whether it’s a tale of pioneers, a memory of being on the water, or just the fisherman’s story of the catch that got away, there’s something about the mighty Miramichi that keeps the conversation flowing. It’s time to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the city’s amalgamation and get caught up in a Miramichi yarn.

Miramichi is a fisherman’s paradise, with experienced anglers gathering in season to try their luck with Atlantic Salmon and Striped Bass. But novices can find some of the world’s best guides too - such as Miramichi Sport Fishing, Upper Oxbow Adventures, Country Haven Lodges, and Wilson’s Four Seasons Resort. It’s never too late to experience the magic of landing a big one.

Boaters can create custom cruising plans, using local marinas, launch sites, and easy-to-find services to make sure the trip is safe and relaxing. Be sure to stop by the bustling waterfront Ritchie Wharf Park, with restaurants, shops, playground and more.

 

When you just want to kick back and enjoy the warm sun, it’s time to pack your things and set out on an inner tube! Gallan’s Miramichi River Tubing, Stewart’s Tubing, and Vicker’s River Tubing all offer worry-free experiences, along with Storeytown Cottages where you can combine lazy river tubing with paddleboard, kayaking, or canoeing.
