We had a great day of kayaking with a small group on a perfect weather day in Nova Scotia. The scenery (Blue Rocks) was gorgeous and the water was crystal clear. Though our guide was new to the area, he was friendly and gave us a good tour of the area. We enjoyed the exercise and the experience and would... More

Karl and his staff are amazingly patient and understanding and were able to turn this water scaredy cat into a kayaking addict. Blue Rocks is beautiful and the guides are very knowledgeable and informative. Boats and equipment are good quality and in in good repair. Can't wait to go back and do The Oven tour!

My wife and I did the 4 hour tour through the islands near Blue Rocks. Although it was a little overcast and foggy the trip was magical. Our guide Carl was excellent. We saw some great sights along the way(including 2 bald eagles), Carl was very informative and made for a relaxed and fun experience. Definitely one of the highlights... More

Two friends and I spent an amazing day taking an Introduction to Sea Kayaking at Blue Rocks this past weekend. The weather and the scenery were picture perfect. The protected inlets were an ideal setting for the course. It made capsizing and re entry much more tolerable than it could have been. Rob, our instructor, provided us with everything we... More

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...
