We took the 2 hour tour at The Ovens. This was my first time sea kayaking (I'll be honest, I almost chickened out lol) but Carl took the time to address each of my concerns and made me feel comfortable...I am SO glad he did. What a cool experience! The Pleasant Paddling crew are very knowledgeable and provide thorough instructions... More

I rented a sea kayak from Pleasant Paddling. The service was great, with lots of help, advice and extras to make the day easier. I would definitely go back to try again! Good times!

This 4 hour kayak tour around Blue Rocks' inlets, channels, the gut and other sheltered areas was terrific. Carl is a wonderful guide, very knowledgable about the natural habitat, flora, fauna, shells, rocks, weather, tides and birds. He has a great sense of humour and puts everyone at their ease immediately whether you are a novice or experienced paddler. The... More

I've never written a travel review before but I was so impressed by this experience that I felt I had to write about it. I enjoyed every minute of the 4- hr guided trip including the instruction and safety briefing, the serene paddling around the Blue Rocks islands, the personable and informative guide, the snack break on the island and...

My daughter and I spend four hours on the water in dense fog and had an absolute blast! Our guide, Carl, was very knowledgeable about the area and about kayaking in general. We kayaked at Blue Rocks and after the fog cleared could really appreciate what a beautiful area this is. I would highly recommend doing a tour. It was... More

This was a great start to our holiday - the four of us in double kayaks, we booked late but they squeezed us in, and took us for a morning at Blue Rocks, a few km out of Lunenburg. There are literally hundreds if not thousands of tiny islands/islets, which protect you from the swell of the sea, and Luke... More

A entertaining way to spend a morning or an afternoon. Everyone was very professional, friendly and truly wanted everyone in our group to have a great time. And as a local, I still learned a few things about what happens in and around the ocean.

We booked this 2 hour paddle tour on a whim and what a great decision it turned out to be! The guides were fun and knowledgable, and took care to ensure everyone in the group had a good time! The gear is good quality and is in good shape. A wonderful way to spend the afternoon.
