Eastern Outdoors was established in 1979 by Robert and Deanna Vlug. The humble beginnings were on the kitchen table and out of the garage in Dipper Harbour, New Brunswick. Customers could place orders for products ranging from large sail boats to sail boards to wet suits and accessories. Sensing a growth in the water sport market, Robert and Deanna opened a retail store in Brunswick Square in busy down town Saint John. Noticing a shift in the type of water sports gaining popularity, they shifted their focus to kayaks. They were selling white water and touring kayaks as well as offering kayak courses. Robert and Deanna realized the importance of teaching their clients how to handle their kayaks properly and safely. Around this time, the mid 1990’s, the buzz was outdoor adventure. Everyone wanted to be an outdoor enthusiast. This is when sea kayaking rose in popularity. This prompted further expansion to include kayak tour outlets in Dipper Harbour, St. Andrew’s, Deer Island and, eventually, Newfoundland.

Our goals for the future are to continue to offer amazing kayak tours in all of our locations and to provide education and training to our customers on how to use the equipment they purchase.
