After having an okay first time experience with another kayaking company based in Nova Scotia, I decided to give it another shot and booked a 4 hour excursion at the Dover location. What a day it turned out to be. Sure, the calm waters and blue skies helped but what really made it enjoyable was Glenn and the route he... More

Three of us went along on the guided sea kayaking tour with 5 others and 1 guide. What a fantastic day! Excellent, knowledgeable guide who knows the area well. Stopped on an island and light snacks were provided. Can see Peggy's Cove lighthouse from here. We all had a fantastic time and will return.

My husband and I did a full day trip out of the Dover location in August of 2013. It was an amazing day. Because the day was so calm, we paddled all the way to the lighthouse at Peggy's Cove. We also stopped twice to get out of the kayaks and explore small islands. The first stop included a delicious... More

This kayak experience was one of the highlights of a recent trip to Nova Scotia. When my husband decided he couldn't participate due to a persistent shoulder injury and anticipated rougher-than-usual conditions on the day we were booked to go, the guide (with the owner's okay) graciously allowed me to join her in her double kayak so I wouldn't miss...

We signed up for the day tour out of the Dover location, which worked well for us because we were able to make it a day trip from Halifax. Glenn was a fantastic guide, and was very safety-minded. We are not experienced kayakers, but he made sure we were totally comfortable with our boat before we set out. Our guide... More

My husband and I (45 & 49) did this trip on August 20th 2013. It was amazing from start to finish. NovaShores Adventures is a very well oiled machine and the guides did an amazing job. We stayed overnight in Advocate Harbour to avoid the long drive up from Halifax the morning of the excursion. We stayed at Reid's Travelers... More

The three-day Cape Chignecto trip was a great send-off for my 18-year-old son who is off to college in a few days. The food was delicious, our guide was informative and helpful (and had great stories), the scenery spectacular, and waves exciting. There was a great balance of paddling and time to hike and climb the rocks from our campsite... More

My daughter and I returned this August for another fantastic sea kayaking experience with the cracker-jack team from Nova Shores Adventures. There are simply not enough superlatives to describe how much we enjoyed our trip. Fun, fun, and more fun. The Bay of Fundy has a notoriously fickle weather pattern but nothing dampens the experience. On the second morning the... More

This is truly an experience not to miss when visiting Nova Scotia. I had the pleasure of doing the half day Fundy Explorer around the northern coast of Cape Chignecto with Anne and Anthony. Words cannot describe the rugged beauty of the coastline. I am already planning to return for the 3 day tour next year.
