Jobs in the great outdoors! Come work with us in one of the rewarding jobs we offer! We are located on the upper Bay of Fundy, in Advocate Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada. Here, we run a small family operation with a focus on sustainable living, an inclusive environment, fair wages and fulfilling jobs. Working with us, you will be a valued part of a highly professional and supportive team. Our tours operate in a rather remote location in the beautiful natural environment of Cape Chignecto Park. It is unlike anywhere else on the East Coast with its red cliffs and arches, big tides, and secluded coves. Here, we strive to make outdoor adventure accessible to a broad range of people. Our sea kayaking tours range from 1 to 3 days. We grow our own food, and all our tours are fully catered. Free housing and camping is available with a job. Plus a great, close-knit team to work with.
