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

We arrived at the appointed time for our adventure and were greeted by Anne and Anthony with all pre kayak preparations and instructions presented to us with the highest of courtesy and professionalism. By the time we reached the launch point, the boats were prepared and ready for the adventure. We travelled with Anthony as our guide and were treated... More

We had a great time kayaking. Started in heavy fog, then beautiful sunshine, then clouds rolling in. We had just finished our tasty lunch when the rain started to fall. Even paddling in the rain was fun. Thanks for the wonderful time. Guides were informative, fun and always safety conscious. We really appreciate having the guides taking pictures and setting... More

The best kayaking trip I've ever had. Beautiful views and all-around fun day with the nicest of company. Only disappointment is that we couldn't stay longer.

Took the family on this beautiful paddle in the Bay of Fundy. The day started with waiver sign in and life jacket/skirt pick up. The staff were super friendly. You need to then drive to the launch about 20 minutes away. They provide a map and you do hit gravel roads. The quick instructions by our guide were just enough... More

If you’re looking for a fun adventure to do in Nova Scotia, NovaShores is it! I’m a bit of a weekend warrior when it comes to outdoor pursuits, so I like to pack as much into my days off as possible. I decided to go on the Seal Cove overnight tour to get a bit of a longer paddle and... More

This kayaking trip was such fun and the guides made it all so easy. The scenery was beautiful and our lunch/snack was delicious. We felt like we were with a group of friends. Kayaking and Advocate Harbour is a must do on any trip to Nova Scotia.

Anthony and Anne of NovaShores Adventures pulled all the stops to make our kayaking tour a spectacular one. We drove to the village of Advocate Harbour, which is on point looking out to the Bay of Fundy. In glorious sunshine, we kayaked along the shore, through the three sisters,(spectacular sea stacks,) negotiating tunnels in the jagged cliffs. It was stunning!... More
