Anne and Darcy kayaked with us beginning of may even though the season didn't start yet. We travelled with an RV and just stopped at their place to ask if they would offer a trip and they said yes! It was a wonderful morning, so much fun kayaking and afterwards we ate a delicious lunch at Darcy's famous lighthouse! Thank... More

13 year old son and I really enjoyed Anne and NovaShores; friendly, helpful, patient. Super-interesting trip - Anne knows so much about the geology and history that we both learned tons about the rocks, the community, and the Bay (as well as about kayaking!). Great food at lunch - lots for all! We'd been told it was a 'must do'... More

This summer I had the pleasure to tour with NovaShores. The guides were very knowledgeable of the areas geology and folklore and the pace of the tour was just right. Kayaking along the coast we were dwarfed by the towering sea cliffs of pink rock and interesting sea caves and of course the highlight being the 3 sisters rock formations.... More

Thanks, EarthGuide, for taking the time to write a review. We're happy you enjoyed all aspects of the Fundy Explorer day tour! You're absolutely right when assuming that we use tandem kayaks only for extra stability as the conditions on the Bay of Fundy can change in an instant. We let people know upon booking that they'll share a fast... More

What a great trip! I had not kayaked for years, and it was a first time for my 15 year old grandson. The owners of NovaShores were helpful and reassuring, the guides were excellent, and the scenery spectacular. We want to go again. I highly recommend it. I was grateful for the help which the guides gave to me, as... More

We are over 60 years young and we took on sea kayaking with excitement. The guide was Anne and she was so accommodating and we had the best time. It was so beautiful and we really got to see the extreme tidal changes going out and coming back, one inch an hour! Anne prepared the nicest beach picnic for us... More

My daughter wanted me to have a memorable birthday, some kind of adventure. This she succeeded in doing. I was a bit hesitant for my first time kayaking and on the ocean, but that was soon erased from my mind as our Guide Anthony went over the techniques and dispelled any fears. We headed out to what would soon become... More

We had a great time paddling the Bay of Fundy and experiencing the sites from our kayaks, and the massive tides. One of our group was a bit apprehensive about this kind of adventure, but everything was managed so well, and John, our guide, looked after everything (even the great lunch!). We're looking forward to next time.

Do this if you're visiting Nova Scotia! 100%! We went on the Seal Cove overnight trip and had a wonderful time! I have only good things to say about the trip and NovaShores. The staff are gracious, friendly, well-trained and educated. The area is a provincial park and is a great way to avoid crowds and see nature. Our guide,... More
