About NovaShores Adventures – Sea Kayaking Professionals

We celebrated 20 years of kayak tours in 2020!
We love what we do, and it shows in our daily work. We care deeply about people and their experience with us, and we are proud to show off a slice of our East Coast heaven. We care deeply about our natural environment and are grateful every day for the joy that being on the ocean brings us. Living with the tides creates a very special energy, and the ancient history of the rocks adds to the magic of this place. Africa and North America collided here once, and we were located at the equator when big swamp forests covered the area. Let us show you this special place in a way that does it justice – from the water, moving at our own pace!

About The Bay of Fundy

You need to see these amazing tides for yourself! In our area, the difference between high and low tide can be up to 13 m or 40 feet. Really mind-boggling! There is so much to see and do here – the oldest dinosaur fossils at the Fundy Geological Museum in Parrsboro, ancient amphibian and tropical plant fossils at the UNESCO Joggins Fossil Cliffs, and earth history that you can touch at the Cliffs of Fundy Geopark that stretches along our shore.

The Bay of Fundy area is steeped in Mi’kmaq legend and place names. Their presence dates back about 13,000 years. The name of the Bay, however, likely comes from the French Acadian settlers and is thought to be a corruption of the French word fendu, meaning ‘split’.

If you would like to get out on the Bay, but don’t want to kayak, check out the amazing zodiac tours at Advocate Boat Tours.
