Our guide was friendly and inspired confidence. Trip length was just right. Scenery was gorgeous, of course - this IS the Bay of Fundy after all! We liked it so much we are now considering taking the 2 or 3 day trip next time we are in the area.

In spite of the foggy weather, we had an amazing, exhilarating time with Nova Shores. We were there just after the full moon so the tides were extra high. The sea was rough but that was not a problem for our three guides. The pushed us off the beach and we paddles through the surf to get launched. What we... More

This was an amazing trip, we traveled with our 11 year old grandson who also loved it! The kayaks were extremely stable and the guides were knowledgeable about paddling and the environment. It was an incredible experience for all of us!

We had great weather, wonderful tour guides and an amazing experience enjoying the bay of Fundy on kayak. We started by getting there around 7:20ish, then we were off in our kayaks! The guides take wonderful pictures and tell you interesting facts about the bay and the rock formations in and around the bay. After about an hour and a... More

The 2 day tour to Seal Cove is indeed highly recommended as well as you see more of the amazing Cape Chignecto coast line, experience a full cycle of the enormously changing tides (up to 40 vertical feet difference between high and low tide), set up camp...

Highly recommend kayaking with NovaShores Adventures - Anne (our guide) was experienced and knowledgable, the trip was wonderful and well organized, and the scenery was unforgettable. Anne provided great direction on safety and kayaking, as well as the geology and history of the area. Had an incredible view of the 3 Sisters, the Amphitheatre, and numerous little caves and coves.... More

Wow what a fantastic day! The weather was perfect the water calm, the scenery spectacular and the host gracious. Anthony and Anne are wonderful, gracious friendly yet professional. They run a top notch business and mother nature appreciates them too. If you possibly have the chance don't miss out on this wonderful adventure.

We were the only 2 booked for a 4-hr day trip & therefore had essentially a private tour with Anthony. It was an exceptionally calm day as we left about 1.5hrs before high tide. We were able to kayak around the 3 Sisters, into the Ampitheater and all around & into coves. We had a delicious lunch on the beach... More
