– 6 Reasons for Kayaking Nova Scotia at this unique destination –

1. Kayaking in a geological Wonderland

Approved by UNESCO! Our stunning coastline has been recognized as world-class. Only here you find fascinating rock formations and colourful cliffs that are unique to this part of Nova Scotia. Come and experience the center piece of the UNESCO Cliffs of Fundy Geopark in the best way possible – from the water! Explore towering red cliffs, sea stacks, arches and ancient lava flows. The scenic cliffs bear evidence of the separation of the continents when what is now Africa and North America drifted apart during the Triassic. Kayaking Nova Scotia at its finest!

2. Hello Largest Tides on Earth

Experience how the seascape changes dramatically as you paddle along the stunning cliffs. The extreme Fundy tides can reach up to 12 m / 40 ft of vertical difference in this area. An amazing experience! Not to worry: The tide doesn’t arrive as a wave here as some might think, but rather as a rapid increase in water levels that is mind-blowing to watch.

3. It’s wild here

Imagine yourself on the pristine coast of its largest and wildest provincial park while kayaking Nova Scotia. In spectacular Cape Chignecto Park, tranquility is the name of the game.

4. The land and its Original people

We respectfully acknowledge that we live, work and play in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. On our tours, we joyfully share the legends and stories of the Mi’kmaq that are so engrained in this coast and its place names. 

5. Real ocean conditions

Cape Chignecto is an exposed area. It can get windy and choppy here. But hey, calm, glassy days are in the cards every now and then, too. So, bring your sense of adventure and some fitness. No kayaking experience is necessary, but confidence in an ocean environment is key. We provide very stable double kayaks and the guidance of expert trip leaders when taking you kayaking Nova Scotia. 

6. Pro Guides

Speaking of which – expect personable, fun & professional guides with all the relevant training when kayaking Nova Scotia. They love what they do, and it shows. Their goal is to make your tour the best they can. Plus, they’ll whip up incredible meals. Prepare to get spoilt with healthy local food on a remote beach.
