sea Kayak in a geological wonderland
At the most stunning sea kayaking destination in Nova Scotia
Kayak Nova Scotia on the Largest Tides on Earth!
Watch the water level change rapidly with our extreme tides that can reach up to 12 m / 40 ft vertical difference. Fascinating rock formations and incredible scenery await! Explore towering red cliffs, sea stacks, arches and ancient lava flows.
Imagine yourself in the remote and pristine area of the largest and wildest provincial park in Nova Scotia, spectacular Cape Chignecto. Its rugged scenic cliffs bear evidence of the separation of the continents when Africa and North America drifted apart during the Triassic, the age of dinosaurs. Come and experience the center piece of the UNESCO Cliffs of Fundy Geopark in the best way possible – from the water! Note: As Chignecto is a wilderness park, there are no bathrooms on the day trip, but lots of cliffs to hide in. On the overnighters, basic outhouses are accessible. Part of the drive to the launch site is on a maintained gravel road.
Explore arches and rock formations with our personable, professional guides. Then get spoilt with healthy local food on a remote beach. NovaShores Adventures believes in low impact tourism, especially in the sensitive preservation area surrounding the Cape Chignecto Park area of the Bay of Fundy.
Cape Chignecto is an exposed area, and some wind and chop should be expected, even though there are calm, glassy days as well. We provide very stable double kayaks and the guidance of expert trip leaders, and you should bring a sense of adventure and an average level of fitness. No experience is necessary, but confidence in an ocean environment is recommended.
