The day we were scheduled to go was windy - we were ready to go, but Angelo warned us about pushing against the wind on our return and we chose to change our trip schedule to go the next day. We were glad we did. The weather had cleared and we were able to enjoy a peaceful morning on the... More

We spontaneously decided to try kayaking. We called Angelo and he said: Yeah, come over, I'll wait for you here. Besides that the scenery is amazing and we had great weather, Angelo guided us with interesting facts about the region, great self-made banana bread and chai-tea. I just can say: Thanks a lot - you made our vacation trip unforgettable.... More

Angelo treated us like family. He is exremely professional but just as kind. It was windy and he ensured we were safe and had fun. His father is just as nice as he is! We are already planning a return trip for an overnight adventure! Thanks Angelo!

I never kayaked before and heard that the tours offered at this company were great for any level including beginners. My sister and I arrived a little early and had had some tea and a lively and interesting chat with our guide and the owner of the company, Angelo. After a short but very informative lesson on everything we needed... More

Angelo treated my wife and I like long lost friends. The half day trip was full of fun and awesome scenery. Felt comfortable and very safe the whole time.

I took my father and Husband and young son on this adventure for Father's Day one year and we all loved it. We have lovely memories and even my son who was only 4 at the time still talks about it. ( I actually went a few years ago but the choices above only allow for recent trips and I... More

These guys are great. We called last minute to arrange a half day on the water with our sons (10, 11 and 14) and they made arrangements right away. We had great gear, good instruction and a wonderful guide, Justin. He was very knowledgeable about all the wildlife and points of interest in the area. He pointed out so many... More

Amazing experience! our guide Justin was super knowledgeable about the types of animals that lived around the area. We got to see a "baby" eagle perched up in the trees. We looked at the weather app and it called for severe thunderstorms, but when we got there, we had the most incredible weather! The sun was out, beautiful breeze, so... More

The whole team at North River Kayak is amazing, and the whole experience is wonderful! Their tours are the perfect way to experience Cape Breton from the water, and their Cape Breton hospitality will make you feel at home. A must when you're in the area.

My wife and I visited NS for our honeymoon. We decided to go kayaking one day and we came across North River Kayak. Our experience was incredible. Our tour guide Justin was helpful, patient, and downright hilarious. The owner Angelo was great as well. They were both hospitable and easygoing (and they made great coffee and banana bread with rhubarb!!).... More
