We had a great morning on the water with Justin (not Bieber :-)) on St.Ann's Bay. The weather was warm and the water was like glass; we couldn't have asked for better weather for kayaking. Justin was a great guide, the eagles (3 plus the eaglets in the nest) were posing for us and the lobstermen were checking their traps... More

My friends and I did the half day kayak tour with Justin (and Justin!). Angelo and Justin went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable- we were all on a first name basis within a minute. Not only was the kayaking great, but the homemade banana bread from down the road spread with Angelo's homemade rhubarb and... More

While on our honeymoon my husband and I did a half day afternoon kayak trip with North River Kayak. It was one of the highlights of our stay in Nova Scotia and was a great experience! Justin was our guide and his friendliness, knowledge of the area, expertise in kayaking and authenticity made our afternoon even better! It was a... More

Four of us headed out in two double kayaks after a brief, but well thought out safety class. The equipment was all top rate. Our guide was helpful and very informative. It was just a great experience for all of us. Cape Breton Island is a place you just have to see from the water. I hope we get back... More

We came here in the summer of 2012 for a little getaway from our young family :) My husband has had a fair bit of experience with paddling, while I have not (in fact I am kind of scared of the water). I felt completely safe and very much enjoyed myself as we paddled along the coastline & saw all... More

My girlfriend and I had a great kayaking day. The scenery was beautiful, the water was calm but enough of a challenge, the weather was great, and our tour guide Matt was friendly, knowledgable and easy going. The owner, Angelo met us at the end of the day and thanked us personally for coming. It was a great time; definitely... More

Experiences are what travel is all about these days, you remember these for life and a paddle with North River is just that. There are any number of reasons why this 1/2 or full day paddle is so worth it for singles, couples and families. Angelo and his staff are absolutely the best, no matter what your kayaking level is,... More
