I, a 49-year old male, did a day-trip kayak with Landon and John. Absolutely loved it. This is a great way to see Cape Chignecto's stunning cliffs, sea stacks, and arches. The guides told us about geology and local history. Lunch was excellent, including a salad with lettuce from NovaShores' own garden and delicious homemade bread.

We had a great time. The guide was amazing and had so much knowledge. we were entertained the whole time. also he could cook and we had gourmet home cooked food for every meal. He even worked at taking all rubbish home to find we had only 1/2 a sandwich bag of rubbish. Very eco friendly. The weather wasnt good... More

In the wilds of Nova Scotia here is a trip where the only sound is water, birds and the gentle lapping of a paddle. Your guide Anna takes you on a leisurely paddle beside the stunning cliffs that tower above you. We felt very safe in her hands as she an experienced professional. For over 60s like us this was...

Truly magical afternoon and evening PLUS a lovely picnic on the beach with wonderful people. We were concerned our over 65 bodies couldn't do kayak but it was not a problem!

That was just the beginning we went on an incredible kayaking trip that took us to one of the most beautiful places either of us have ever scene, amazing. Anne and Darcy do this right! Thanks so...

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
