Sea Kayaking Adventure Tours

Sea Kayak & Canoe Rentals, Lessons, Paddling Day Trips, and Multi-day Tours in Nova Scotia.

Paddling is an old skill, changed little with the passage of eons. You can follow the same coastlines and waterways as ancient hunters, fishers, and voyageurs, using the same double-bladed paddles that propelled them for centuries. It's in your bones, and being this close to the water will reward you with a deeply satisfying experience. Things slow down, details become clearer, and the sounds of the wild fill the time. A week of this warming activity will be both longer than you imagine and shorter than you had hoped.

These sea kayak trips give you a luxurious experience, whether you choose inn-to-inn or camping. The wilderness camping includes tents with pillows, delicious and nutritious meals, and support boats, including a Whitby 42 sailing ketch, perfect for dinners at anchor and emergency support during open-water crossings. The inn-to-inn trips are supported with a van following the coastline carrying your luggage. In either case, you will be free to explore, in a light boat, with the comfort of an inviting dinner and a dry, comfy bed at the end of each day.

The convoluted coasts of Atlantic Canada and Croatia let you paddle, swim, and explore in clear, clean water in a paradise for coastal paddlers. Sheltered coves, sandy bays, beaches, and beautiful offshore islands all harbour a wide variety of wildlife, and the clarity of the water off these coasts will astound you.

No previous sea kayaking experience is necessary when you have a guide, but you should be in reasonably good physical condition, and should feel comfortable on the water. If you have no experience, or if you cannot demonstrate proficiency at self-rescue and marine trip planning, we will insist that you join a group with a guide, or have a training session and paddling plan. We want your experience to be safe and enjoyable.

Our flexible service includes seakayak and canoe rentals, holiday plans, instruction or fully guided support. We can customize kayak tour itineraries for your family or private group of any size. You will eat well, while we care about your enjoyment, looking after all the details and logistics so that you can relax, clear your mind, and enjoy your surroundings. We are ready to creat the setting for you to simply breathe, paddle, and enjoy....
