We are open daily for the 2021 season!

Depending on your vaccination status, you may be required to self-isolate:
– Fully vaccinated travellers who had their last vaccine dose at least 14 days before entering Nova Scotia do not need to self-isolate. Testing is recommended.
– Partially vaccinated travellers who had their first dose of two at least 14 days before entering Nova Scotia must self-isolate for 7 days and receive 2 negative test results in order to leave self-isolation.
– People who are not vaccinated or who received one dose of two less than 14 days prior to arriving to Nova Scotia, must self-isolate for 14 days. Testing is recommended at the beginning and at the end of self-isolation.
The Canadian border is open to fully vaccinated US travellers from August 9th, 2021. On September 7th, it is expected that fully vaccinated travellers from other countries can enter Canada without having to self-isolate.

You can also have your booking turned into a non-expiring voucher or gift certificate for free.

We have implemented best practices to reduce the risk of a virus infection on our tours and at our accommodation. Social distancing and the frequent disinfection of gear and public areas are standards. Please keep your face covering handy in case social distancing cannot be maintained, for example in situations where the guide has to help adjusting your gear. Face coverings are mandatory during our check-in process. Wash or disinfect your hands frequently and do not touch your face. Please notify us in case you experience any symptoms of COVID-19, and abstain from taking the tour to protect others. In this case, you can turn your booking into a voucher or receive a 90 % refund right until tour start.
We hope to see you soon!
What kind of paddling conditions should I expect?
To join our tours, no experience is necessary, and we welcome beginners. This, however, does not mean that the conditions on the Bay of Fundy are particularly easy to kayak in. Cape Chignecto is an exposed area, and a bit of wind and chop should be expected. We provide very stable double kayaks and the assistance of expert guides, and you should bring a sense of adventure and an average level of fitness. Sometimes, we paddle into a bit of wind, and chop can build up in a few moments. Sometimes, there can be a bit of surf at the beach landing, or you might be paddling through some waves. Other days are glassy and calm, you just never know what you get, and conditions can change rapidly out here. We do cancel for winds above 10 knots (20 km/h) and seas over 1.6 feet if we see this coming on the forecast. We do not usually cancel for rain.
What is the access road like?
After checking in at our office, most guests will drive in their own vehicle to the put-in spot, which is located about 27 km from Advocate Harbour. Part of this route is on gravel which is not recommended for motorcycles and sports cars with very little clearance. RVs are fine depending on the size. Please check in with us well beforehand if in doubt.
