Great trip with Matt as our guide. He was informative and terrific instructor. He made me less anxious as it was our first time in a sea kayak. The tour is very picturesque. The full price for four people was $400 with tip for a 4 hour excursion.

My husband and I did the evening kayak tour with Paul. It was perfect, a nice small group, a low-key trip for a brand new kayaker like me, and Paul was a wonderful guide for us all - his love for kayaking and for sharing that with others really shone through.

My wife and I did the afternoon tour with four other friends. We couldn't have asked for a nicer afternoon. The guides were great, they are well trained in kayaking and you feel safe and secure plus they have fun and interesting tidbits of history about the area. The scenery was amazing. Carl runs a first rate kayaking tour company,... More

Our family of 5 did the most amazing and memorable early evening tour of The Ovens caves today with Carl, our intrepid, friendly, professional, and incredibly accommodating guide. We saw some of the most beautiful wildlife, all in a respectful and natural setting. Carl begins by giving you a great kayaking how-to and safety instruction, which is great to hear,... More

I've done a fair amount of recreational kayaking, and Carl and Finn were the first to actually teach me how to paddle properly. The tour was very informative, and a full four hours-no skimping here. And, we saw myriad seals. There is a cute snack shack open when you return from kayaking that sells ice cream (order the moon mist),... More

I can't recommend this enough. The kayak trip to the island made our honeymoon. The guided tour is amazing, the guides are easy going, knowledgeable, super helpful, and friendly. My wife and I went into this trip with zero experience and now we're looking to buy a kayak. Note: If you're prone to arguing about each other's driving, take 2... More

Went on the trip to look at seals in Blue Rocks area with my mother today. Everything about the excursion was great. It was foggy and the area was beautiful. Guides were charming which was a blessing as I was nervous to be on the ocean for the first time in a kayak. We saw seals and water fowl but... More

My husband and I and our two teens loved the experience. We got to see Nova Scotia scenery that would never have been possible from the shore. No experience necessary, but exciting enough that the kids had a great time. Paul and Fin knowledgeable and interesting guides. Weather was chilly but the rubber "skirts" that tucked over the seats kept... More

At 65, with two replaced knees and a total love of being on the water in a kayak and knowledge that getting in and out of a boat is at best problematic for me, I still was excited about the opportunity to kayak in Nova Scotia. Every detail of the experience was perfect. Jen made me feel comfortable that I... More
