My wife, daughter, and I took a tour with Justin. We had a great time and would highly recommend it to anyone interested or even slightly considering it. Justin was very personable and did a very good job of getting us comfortable with kayaking (although we had some experience, it was limited and some time ago). Overall, I would rank... More

I've been out Kayaking with Angelo and his awesome staff a few times, and It's always an amazing experience. Each trip is unique. Our last trip included eagle sightings around their massive nest which is overhanging the cliffs we paddled under, a waterfall, voluntary T rescue training, snacks on the beach, and even an exclusive side trip to his private...

My wife and I took an afternoon tour with Angelo, and we won't soon forget the experience. Angelo has years of experience operating his business, and it shows. He got us ready for the trip, and although we were familiar with kayaking, he made the others in the group feel good about going out on the water. We paddled out... More

I took my 16 year old son on the 1/2 day tour, and we had such a fantastic day! Right from the minute we got there, we felt comfortable and at home, even though we had very limited experience with kayaking. Justin was our tour guide and he was amazingly patient, kind, and personable. I was a bit nervous of... More

We had a group of six for kayaking with Angelo and Justin. There were six others with us for our 3 hour kayak excursion on the North River. We felt very well taken care of by our two guides in the double kayaks. Great instruction and safety orientation to kayaking. We had a bit of a headwind and some current... More

Came here with a few friends and had amazing day. Justin, our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and patient. We were shown around the bay and got to visit a beautiful waterfall. The weather cooperated which is a huge plus. This is one of the best things you can do near Baddeck.

We were two families travelling with seven-year-olds, so we opted for the two-hour excursion. Justin, our guide, was fantastic—incredibly knowledgable about the area (and I say that as one who grew up in rural Cape Breton), patient, generous, skilled and funny. We saw several eagles, observed mussel farmers at work, checked out the waterfall and had a great beachside snack... More

My husband and I arrived at North River Kayak and were undecided whether to do our own self-guided tour.....after speaking with Angelo (the owner), we felt perfectly comfortable going out to explore on our own....Angelo didn't hesitate when we expressed our desire to go off on our own and offered to set us up with all the necessary info so...

There were 6 of us in our group with various levels of experience who participated in a 1.5/2 hour paddle around Kidston Island across from Baddeck. Angelo was an excellent guide, the equipment was top notch, pace of the trip was fabulous and instruction simple to understand. We appreciated the stop on the island as well as the treats Angelo...
